"The one thing ... that is truly ugly is the climate of hate and intimidation, created by a noisy few, which makes the decent majority reluctant to air in public their views on anything controversial. Where all pretend to be thinking alike, it's likely that no one is thinking at all."
- Edward Abbey
The Smokers Club thanks Theodore J. King CVS Ceased To Sell Cigarettes Because Of Intimidation Or Cronyism, Not Public Health. By Theodore J. King. President Obama and many in the press made it appear that CVS was being altruistic, forsaking between 1.5 and 2 billion dollars in annual revenue from the sale of tobacco products. The reality is this was a business decision by CVS in order to cash in on the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare), which allows insurance companies to charge up to 50 percent more in premiums for smokers and get favorable publicity from much of the media already hostile to tobacco. CVS is more than within its right to sell or not sell a legal product but they should be honest about it.
The Smokers Club thanks Jacob Sullum Junk Science: Leaping From Mouse to Man, Researchers Warn That E-Cigarettes Could Make You Snort Cocaine. By Jacob Sullum. Here is a warning you will never see on a pack of cigarettes: "The Surgeon General Has Determined That Cigarette Smoking May Enhance Your Enjoyment of Cocaine." "This study tells us little about human biology and nothing at all about real-world human behavior," says Phillips. "It does not even measure mouse behavior. The study provides no evidence there is a gateway effect, and there is no reason to believe there is one." CASAA President Julie Woessner calls it "a classic case of someone with a political agenda tacking their opinions onto technical research and trying trick the press into reporting it that way." Fortunately for the Kandels, the press is easy to trick.
Propaganda Propaganda - WHO Would Have Expected This? The very same day that the World Health Organization launched its latest attack on electronic cigarettes one of the UK's best-selling newspapers ran an article making exactly the same claims. If you were really suspicious you might suspect a major international PR agency was somehow involved. Of course that can't be true. Then again, Rachael Lloyd isn't just a random person with a story to tell. She works for BLJ London, an "international strategic advisory consultancy" that specialises in "policy, legislative and market access campaigns". The WHO's jihad against e-cigarettes is focused firmly on changing policy, encouraging legislation and denying market access - just the sort of campaign BLJ discreetly carries out for its high-profile clients. And yes, "discreetly" is their description, not mine.
Reputation Launderers: The London PR firms with their own image problems. London's public relations industry has got a PR problem. Top firms such as Bell Pottinger, Brown Lloyd James, Portland and Grayling are coming under intense scrutiny because of their work for foreign governments or in regimes of dubious repute.
The Public Health Mask Slips. By Dick Puddlecote. During the conversation I expressed my view that the public health movement had morphed from a position of benevolent concern for the public into one where coercion and bullying appeared to be central tactics; that in the past, public health had offered advice and support for those who wished to change their lifestyles, but generally left alone those who were content with taking ubiquitously-known risks. The occasion sticks in my mind because - to my surprise - the guy nodded and seemed to agree with me!
Also: E-Cigarette users and public health experts are starkly divided. Public health chiefs have accused e-cigarette users of a campaign of online abuse, saying that junior scientists are being scared away from research by explicit attacks from "vapers" on Twitter.
Indoor Air Quality Standard Modified. ASHRAE has proposed an alternate compliance path for existing buildings in its indoor air quality standard, in a move that recognizes that the ventilation rate procedure may be difficult to apply in these facilities. Also open for public comment is proposed addendum c, which would revise the current definition of environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) to include emissions from electronic smoking devices and from smoking of cannabis, now allowed by some jurisdictions.
The Food Insecurity Hoax. Promoting hunger scam is how federal bean counters keep their jobs. According to the U.S. Agriculture Department, American households suffer far more "food insecurity" than do families in Angola, Mozambique and Pakistan. The USDA uses different standards to gauge domestic and foreign "food security," but neither measure make senses. Still, that technicality will do nothing to deter politicians and pundits from demagoging the hunger issue.
Food Good For You. (Comedy) REGULARLY eating food protects against death, it has emerged. Professor Brubaker believes there is a clear link between eating food and not dying. "Eventually you will die, but that is inevitable."

"When an opponent declares, "I will not come over to your side," I calmly say, Your child belongs to us already... What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community."
- Adolph Hitler

The Inversion of Science, Justice and Common Sense. I am sure that we are all aware that the WHO has recommended that ecigs should be banned in enclosed places (surprise, surprise). This propaganda suggestion is blatantly the work of the Big Pharma Companies which the WHO represents. And the reasoning is also blatant nonsense - literally. "We do not know what the long-term effects on 'passive vapers' will be, so make sure that there are no passive vapers so that no one will EVER know what the effects on passive vapers will be". Re-work that sentence with a few clever words, and Bob's yer uncle - vaping banned in pubs. But it was the evidence that the WHO produced which led me to think...
Cut off one limb, another appears... Clive Bates has recently given his response to the WHO's disproportionate recommendations on e-cigarettes, which you can read here.
What is The World Health Organization? The organization faces criticism for its growing dependence on the pharmaceutical industry. The "People's Health Movement," a network of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) focused on health policy from more than 70 countries, has criticized the pharmaceutical industry's growing influence on WHO as well as the organization's increasing reliance on private donors.
What is The United Nations? Read the full text of "The fearful master; a second look at the United Nations" and Watch the video: G. Edward Griffin On The United Nations. In reality, the United Nations is the seat of what the member governments hope will become a true world government.
"U.N. Me" Documentary Exposes the United Nations. Most people are familiar with the U.N.'s notorious ineffectiveness, but viewers of the documentary U.N. Me will reach an inevitable conclusion: It's even worse than we thought.
NE: Smoking in cigar bars, tobacco outlets ruled unconstitutional. In its decision, the court upheld the overall ban. "Allowing patrons of such shops to smoke simply because it is convenient does not comport with the purpose of the Act, which is to protect the public and employees from the dangers of second-hand smoke," Stephan wrote.
TN: Involuntary blood test. Under "no refusal" enforcement, suspected drunk drivers will be forced to submit to a breathalyzer or blood test, even if they refuse. Forced blood extractions take place off-site at a police precinct, making the process time consuming for individuals who might be innocent. Additionally, for those who refuse to comply, extraction locations are equipped with tools to strap down suspects and masks to cover their faces.
WV: Gaming down at Berkeley County bars since smoking ban went into effect. The amount of cash put into limited video lottery game machines at more than 80 of these alcohol-serving establishments also dropped by about $1 million from June to July. Three clubs have indicated they might very well close in the coming days given the effect of the smoking ban on their business.
Australia: Smoking cops will get power to enter Victorian schools. Parents and older siblings who picked up students from school knew that smoking would no longer be tolerated at the school gates. Council inspectors will be allowed in to investigate possible breaches and ensure the rules are being complied with.
Australia: Has the nanny state gone too far? NOTHING stirs up the emotions quite as much as the debate around the so-called nanny state. Plain packaging, 1:30am lockouts, bicycle helmet laws - public health advocates say it's all for the greater good, but libertarians say they erode personal responsibility and impose burdensome red tape. The issue of the nanny state raised its head again this week with the second of four planned hikes to the tobacco excise, expected to discourage people from smoking. Cigarette prices are set to rise by $1.41 for a pack of 25.
Canada: Capital Health's smoke-free policy expands to homes. New policy, effective Oct. 20, covers cigarettes and e-cigarettes. MacIntosh says many patients who smoke already avoid lighting up when their caregiver visits.

"A business that makes nothing but money is a poor kind of business."
- Henry Ford

CDC proposes tobacco ban at every workplace in the U.S.
"Establish and maintain tobacco-free workplaces for all employees, allowing no use of any tobacco products, including but not limited to cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and smokeless tobacco products by anyone at any time in the workplace," the document reads. "At a minimum, the tobacco-free zone should encompass all indoor areas with no exceptions and no indoor smoking areas of any kind (including separately enclosed and/or ventilation areas), as well as areas immediately outside building entrances and air intakes, and all work vehicles," the bulletin said. "Optimally and whenever feasible, the entire workplace campus, including all outdoor areas, should be established as tobacco-free."
AZ Pima County proposes hiring ban, extra charges for smokers. Chuck Huckelberry said the proposed smoking ban for new employees, and medical insurance surcharges of up to 50 percent for current employees who use tobacco, is a matter of dollars and common sense.
Don't like smoking bans at state parks? Do something about it. Decisions are made by those who show up. The majority opinion, from what I've seen, has been mostly negative. Many believe the rule is unenforceable, a gross overreaction and represents a slippery slope in terms of rule-making. OPRD has been called everything from a nanny-state enforcer to a rogue branch of tyrannical government on par with Nazis.
Jail For Smoking Outdoors? By Dick Puddlecote. There has never been - nor will there ever be - a scientific study which says passive smoking outdoors is dangerous to passers-by. It doesn't stop one town from proposing a criminal record for smoking outdoors though, complete with a possible jail sentence.
E-cigarettes are not a 'gateway,' they help smokers quit. If there was a device that helped smokers quit the habit - saving lives, reducing the leading cause of preventable disease in the United States and making life better for everyone - you would think public health officials would enthusiastically endorse it.
Coffee Cup of Joe, or Cup of Death? Estimates suggest 85% of Americans old enough to eat solid food consume at least one caffeinated beverage any given day. That hasn't stopped activists from opening a scare campaign designed to "de-normalize" - fancy-pants Ph.D.- speak for "make regular people feel guilty about" - your morning cup of Joe, soft drink, or tea.
NZ: Gluten-free beer labels to be banned. Gluten-free claims will be banned from beer bottles under new regulations - frustrating brewers and people with gluten allergies.
