Disgusting move by Big Tobacco
Cigarette company RJ Reynolds to the FDA: Please ban our competition! We are terrible at innovation and know we can't possible compete in the current e-cigarette market.

Please SHARE this across all social media platforms and through email so others get informed about this disgusting plea for corporate protectionism.
The fact that RJReynolds wants to end the open tank system, rapidly its biggest economic threat in the vapor industry is not shocking. The fact that the FDA or the federal government would place any credible weight to Big Tobacco’s comments is appalling. The FDA needs to look to the economic impact of their decision and in this case, it would be to hand Big Tobacco, basically two companies, almost the entirety of the industry. The question becomes is the federal government now in the business of intentionally violating the Sherman Act and creating monopolies or will it do the analysis it is required to do and allow this burgeoning industry made up of entrepreneurs and family owned businesses to thrive and achieve the American Dream.
A fresh look at tobacco harm reduction: the case for the electronic cigarette
Smokers of any age can reap substantial health benefits by quitting. In fact, no other single public health effort is likely to achieve a benefit comparable to large-scale smoking cessation. Surveys document that most smokers would like to quit, and many have made repeated efforts to do so. However, conventional smoking cessation approaches require nicotine addicted smokers to abstain from tobacco and nicotine entirely. Many smokers are unable – or at least unwilling – to achieve this goal, and so they continue smoking in the face of impending adverse health consequences. In effect, the status quo in smoking cessation presents smokers with just two unpleasant alternatives: quit or suffer the harmful effects of continuing smoking. But, there is a third choice for smokers: tobacco harm reduction.
This ties in with work that the Utah Vapers did with FlavourArt in Italy from 2012 that highlights a smokers 'Right to Choose’. There IS a third choice...
Please support tobacco harm reduction policies!
