Exposing the UN’s war on e-cigarettes

Lauren SouthernArchive

I'm at the World Health Organization Framework for Tobacco Control meeting in India right now. Faith Goldy and I have been chasing delegates, talking to experts and trying to figure out what the globalists are trying to hide by having a conference on election week.

They love when the public are distracted while they push through ridiculous legislation.

What kind of legislation are they trying to push through that looks so bad to the public though?

Well, the UN are looking to regulate one of the few new free market alternatives to tobacco smoking that actually works: E-cigarettes.

Their reasons range from misquoted studies all the way to "this is good for women and minorities".

What in the end does banning things like fun vape flavours do the for the little people, though? It makes anti-tobacco alternatives less appealing to smokers, leading to more unhealthy people.

"Reason" editor Jacob Sullum and I discuss the nanny state mission to control what we put in our bodies, and regulate free market solutions.

Smoking is a psychological addiction as well as a chemical one. Nicotine is completely out of your system in 3 days if you quit cold turkey. If you vape with nicotine products you keep throwing yourself into nicotine withdrawal that’s why smokers get so edgy. They go from withdrawal to withdrawal between cigarettes. It is the psychological addiction that causes people who have quit to relapse. They associate smoking with drinking coffee, meal times, hanging out with friends, and oddly enough stress relief (nicotine withdrawal causes the stress between cigarettes). This is hardly ever addressed in smoking cessation programs. I read a really good book in this years ago but unfortunately don’t recall the author.

First they will tell you e-cigarettes contain tobacco hoping you will fall for that. When you say no they don’t. Then they refer to the nicotine, saying the same addictive substance is available, which leads to smoking. You have to continue with the same answer; no they don’t. E-cigarettes are a mechanical delivery device and they contain no nicotine whatsoever. Anything added is a self autonomous consumer choice, beyond the control of the retailer. Nicotine is optional. The choice is legal and for most the motivation is to gradually get rid of the nicotine which will gradually improve the flavor. reward system built right in to ion effect do exactly what the medically approved alternatives don’t do very well, primarily because of the side effects, they make quitting a chore, while e-cigs make it like grabbing a snack in place of a cigarette. The finger wags and anti-autonomy hypocrites hate e-cigs because they have to justifiable reason to oppose, or tax them, nor is there a public health issue here with no one else being harmed, beyond the nanny state egos. It was once ridiculous to suggest we should have a smoking ban in a bar, much less all of them. Now we are on the verge of vapping bans in the same bars, to protect no employees or patrons or anyone they can name.

Just another way to enforce the new “progressive” laws, on apparently conquered UN lands, controlled by; do what your told. Always about the money.

- As with everything the UN does it’s all about grabbing as much money & power as they can – for our own good of course.

They are just a bunch of intrusive nannies that can’t seem to mind their own business. Nobody needs the WHO dictating to people about what they are, or are not allowed to buy for their own pleasure. They want everyone to fall in line, and do as they are told. It’s sickening that these busybodies think they are entitled to dictate to everyone in the world, when as individuals we are responsible for our own lives. They aren’t our mommies and daddies, so the WHO should back off and disband. The black market will of course bypass this fools!
