Massachusetts Governor Signs Law Severely Restricting Flavored Tobacco, Vape Products

https://www.npr.org/2019/11/27/783400051/massachusetts-governor-signs-law-severely-restricting-flavored-tobacco-vape-prod

The newly signed law is set to take effect on June 1, 2020. A temporary blanket ban on all vaping products will remain in place until Dec. 11.

The legislation is not a blanket ban. Instead, it limits the sale of flavored nicotine vaping products, including menthol, “to licensed smoking bars where they may only be smoked on-site.”

Our friends at the Consumer Choice Center (CCC) just released the 2020 US Vaping Index.

The index categorizes and ranks each state based on its consumer-friendly regulatory approach to vaping products. The CCC team behind the index — David Clement and Yaël Ossowski — assigned grades of A, C, or F to states depending on each state’s legislative actions on the availability of flavored vaping products, taxation, and online sales restrictions or prohibitions.

The full graph is below:

“The worst states – New York, California, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Rhode Island – are far behind all the other states because of flavor bans, exorbitant taxation on vaping products, and restrictions on online sales,” said Clement. “Our research indicates these states go above and beyond to deter adult smokers from switching to vaping, which could vastly improve and prolong their lives.”

New York joined the states of New Jersey, California, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island as the worst in the nation with a grade of “F”, while states like Virginia, Colorado, Texas, and Maryland each received “A” scores for more consumer-friendly vaping regulations.

“What lawmakers should note is that a number of states are providing a positive framework of regulation for vaping that boosts consumer choice while contributing to public health by encouraging smoking cessation,” said Ossowski. “Excessive flavor bans, taxes, and prohibitions on online commerce grow the black market sector and harm consumers who want less harmful alternatives to smoking.

“If states want to innovate in 2020 and provide adult smokers with an alternative that is less harmful, they should look to reform their state laws to better accommodate this new technology that is helping millions,” said Ossowski.

As part of its campaign to urge policymakers to take a rational approach to vaping, the CCC also launched a resource page Why Flavors Matter and a policy paper of the same name.

Tuesday Bro Newsday! The “NEW” Harms of Vaping From JAHA – Also IQOS / Bloomberg

https://grimmgreen.com/2020/10/28/tuesday-bro-newsday-the-new-harms-of-vaping-from-jaha-also-iqos-bloomberg/

Welcome back to Tuesday Bro NEWSDAY. New name, new host, same reliable news and advocacy.

Each week for roughly a dangle-clack-free hour and a half Danielle and I will be discussing the topics of the day. As well as current breaking news from the world of vaping, nicotine and tobacco harm reduction.

Today’s topics include SCIENCE!! or… “junk” science rather from the AHA. They really REALLY want “EVALI” to be somehow related to nicotine vaping, and are willing to manufacture the science to get there. We will hopefully also discuss some IQOS news. Is it any safer than smoking? was that all a lie? well according to Bloomberg… yes.

Cochrane Review: E-Cigarettes Appear More Effective Than Nicotine Replacement Therapy

https://vaping.org/cochrane-review-e-cigarettes-appear-more-effective-than-nicotine-replacement-therapy/

A newly published review in the Cochrane Library Database of Systematic Reviews provides further evidence that e-cigarettes and vapor products are more effective than nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) in helping smokers quit.

The authors employed 50 completed studies that had been published up to January 2020, which represented over 12,400 participants. Of the 50 studies, 26 were randomized control trials, “in which people who smoke were randomized to an [e-cigarette] or control condition.” In order to be included in the Cochrane review, “studies had to report abstinence from cigarettes at six months or longer and/or data on adverse events or other markers of safety at one week or longer.”

This is the latest Cochrane review update and includes 35 new studies. The authors found that there was “moderate-certainty evidence, limited by imprecision, that quit rates were higher in people randomized to nicotine [e-cigarettes] than in those randomized to nicotine replacement therapy.” The authors found that e-cigarette use translated “to an additional four successful quitters per 100.” The authors also found higher quit rates in participants that had used e-cigarettes containing nicotine, compared to the participants that had not used nicotine.

The authors noted the most reported adverse events were “throat/mouth irritation, headache, cough, and nausea, which tended to dissipate over time with continued use.”

The authors conclude that more “people probably stop smoking for at least six months using e-cigarettes than using nicotine replacement therapy,” and e-cigarettes may be useful to smokers without behavior support. Further, the authors found that for “every 100 people using nicotine e-cigarettes to stop smoking, 10 might successfully stop, compared with only six of 100 people using nicotine replacement therapy or nicotine-free e-cigarettes.”

The results are similar to a 2016 Cochrane review of e-cigarettes for smoking cessation, which found that there was “evidence from two trials that [e-cigarettes] help smokers to stop smoking in the long term compared to placebo [e-cigarettes].” Cochrane reviews are recognized worldwide as representing a gold standard for systematic reviews.

Regarding the new review, Prof Lion Shahab, Professor of Health Psychology and Co-Director of the UCL Tobacco and Alcohol Research Group, University College London, said “the authors also did not detect evidence of serious harms from electronic cigarettes, which should reassure policymakers and health bodies that electronic cigarettes have an important role to play in reducing the burden from combustible tobacco use.”

Peter Hajek, contributing senior author to the Cochrane review and Director of the Tobacco Dependence Research Unit at Queen Mary University of London remarked “e-cigarettes are a form of nicotine replacement that is more attractive to smokers and that seems more effective than the earlier products. The results of this new review of randomised trials of vaping tally with other evidence from cohort and epidemiological studies, suggesting that for many smokers, e-cigarettes represent an effective tool for quitting smoking.”

E-cigarettes and vaping tools have emerged as an effective tool in helping smokers quit. Despite this, many elected officials have moved to ban their sale in localities and states, with these officials often claiming that e-cigarettes are not needed because FDA-approved quitting tools exist. This study provides further evidence that e-cigarettes have helped many American adults quit smoking and are, indeed, more effective than FDA-approved nicotine replacement therapy in helping smokers quit.

Is it safe to manually set ohms?

https://www.reddit.com/r/Vaping/comments/jf56a9/is_it_safe_to_manually_set_ohms/

I have a Odin DNA75c and sometimes when I do a build on my kayfun lite 24mm clone the ohms are around .75 and it comes up as throttling when I try and fire.

If I manually lower the ohms to around .6 it works fine.

I'm using SS31L superfine clapton by vandyvape at like 6 wraps 2mm inner diameter in SS316L profile at 22 watts 190 degrees celcius with a preheat at 30 watts with about %80 punch.

I am using the gauges theme and have read conflicting information that this can cause issues with throttling.

Any advice would be great.

Tuesday Bro Tuesday – Youth Vaping Is DOWN! – Danielle Jones RETURNS!

https://grimmgreen.com/2020/09/23/tuesday-bro-tuesday-youth-vaping-is-down-danielle-jones-returns/

Welcome back to Tuesday Bro Tuesday. Same show by name only. Timestamps ( if any ) are the first pinned comment underneath this video.

Each week for roughly a dangle clack free hour and a half we will all be discussing the topics of the day. As well as current breaking news from the world of vaping, nicotine and tobacco harm reduction.

According to the 2020 National Youth Tobacco Survey ( NYTS ) Youth Vaping is down! No one seems to be reporting on this anywhere from what I can see. CDC is still focusing on things like device preference ( JUUL vs Disposables ). Not a lot of data has been released yet, but Danielle Jones is here to help us understand the data that has been released.

MY REVIEW PROCESS : 11 YEARS OF STUFF

https://grimmgreen.com/2020/09/20/my-review-process-11-years-of-stuff/

So there ya go. Everything that arrives in my office goes through my process and the different stages of desk / no mans land / retirement or boxes. Like I said in the video, i’ve kept almost 11 years of stuff. More than that, i’ve MOVED 11 years of stuff from apartment to apartment to apartment to my house.

Maybe someday i’ll get literally everything out and show it all off. But i’m guessing that would be an hour long video.
