1 Billion Tobacco deaths this century if trends continue. Advocates who support unhindered access to the full range of vape products will help enable the single most important advance in public health since the discovery of antibiotics. #VapingSavesLives

San Fran is banning all vaping to try and keep youth from getting nicotine addictions but won’t ban cigarettes/keeping them on all shelves??? Where’s the LOGIC.

Quoted @dennisherrera

This legislation takes a reasoned approach. It doesn’t ban e-cigarettes outright. It simply says that if a tobacco product is required to have FDA approval to be on the market, it can’t be sold in San Francisco until it receives that approval. That’s just common sense.

Marijuana is a Schedule 1 drug and is sold & used freely in SF. Heroin users are (rightfully) supported with tacit approval of safe injection sites. Vaping? Nope, you need to get FDA approval to sell it. Unless, of course, the FDA approves a flavored e-cig. They're still banned

2019:  San Francisco becomes the first US city to ban the sale of e-cigarettes, while keeping deadly combustible cigarettes on the market

2050:  City officials issue official apology for thousands of deaths - from cancer, heart and lung disease - caused by their predecessors

San Francisco has never been afraid to lead. That will always be the case when the health of our children is on the line. I want to thank the Board of Supervisors for taking this pioneering step to protect our youth. https://www.sfcityattorney.org/2019/06/18/herrera-statement-on-passing-of-e-cigarette-legislation/ …

This is idiotic. Cigarettes kill more than 400,000 Americans a year and SF is banning the far safer product that competes with them.

New research published today by @ASH_LDN shows #vaping remains uncommon among young people, and young people vape mainly out of experimentation, not because they think it looks "cool".  http://ash.org.uk/media-and-news/press-releases-media-and-news/in-britain-young-people-vape-just-to-give-it-a-try-not-because-they-think-its-cool/ …

Simple little "errors" like changing a word and adding another to misquote Prof. Newton in order to turn his sentence to mean the exact opposite. Oops! Surely just a typo...

#Vaping "It's about the people, it's about human rights." "The stigma shouldn't be there." "Biggest opportunity to save lives that I've seen & has occurred since the use of tobacco in any form." - Dr David Abrams (Professor of Social & Behavioral Sciences)

Collusion. Dirty details of the co-ordinated effort to wipe out vaping.  https://youtu.be/sG-vW1ku0_U  
You do realise that, if the effort to kill vaping succeeds, 1 in 2 smokers will continue to die horrible early deaths, but that teens who vape will revert to smoking & BigT will win?

One of the other funding models (FDA, NIH, etc) -- "tax the s*** out of" good, productive people and distribute that money to researchers, which enables those receiving it to feel morally superior. And don't worry about those people you've taken money from. @MarewaGlover #GFN19

Current evidence indicates that smokers who switch from smoking to vaping reduce the risks to their health dramatically. We believe this needs to be communicated and that undermining this message will keep smokers smoking and dying as a result. Quoted from link provided.

#Vaping is not tobacco. At least 95% & probably 99% safer than smoking. The most effective smoking cessation aid in existence. No risk to bystanders. Much less addictive. Has no suicide risk unlike Varenicline. #VapingSavesLives #CelebrateTheVape
