• Doctors in the UAE are urging e-cigarette users to be aware of the health risks from the practice of vaping and say e-cigarettes are just as harmful as smoking tobacco. Millions of cigarette smokers around the world, including in the UAE, want to kick the habit and have switched to what they believe is a healthier and safer alternative which is equally dangerous.

  • GOP California Rep. Duncan Hunter, a long-time defender of e-cigarettes and tobacco in the military, has written a letter to the Navy, urging the service to reconsider its suspension of vaping and e-cigarettes. [...] “I would also ask that the Navy consider joining me in reducing any risks associated with system use rather than taking such an extraordinary step to deny a life-saving alternative to traditional tobacco use,” [...]

  • The historical roots of tobacco go way back to almost the beginning of time. Some date it as early as 1 B.C. when the American Indians used it for religious and medicinal practices. Given what we know about tobacco today it’s almost impossible to believe tobacco was ever thought of as a cure-all for everything from dressing wounds to the standard go-to painkiller.

  • Yesterday, the New York Times published an editorial titled “Big Tobacco Attacks Sensible F.D.A. Vaping Rules.” Two points for debate surface immediately. First is the question of just how sensible those rules really are. Second is the insinuation that tobacco companies should play no role in developing nicotine products that are far less hazardous than cigarettes.

  • The experience of jurisdictions that have legalized cannabis suggests there is little change in consumption rates post-legalization. Generally speaking, anyone wishing access to cannabis in a pre-legalization landscape can easily obtain it today. All we are changing is from whom it is purchased. If Canada were merely to decriminalize, rather than legalize, marijuana, that would give criminals a much freer hand to sell the product.

  • Smoking is the habit that many adults in the UK wish they could kick. According to figures by Public Health England in 2015, almost 1 in 5 adults in the UK smoke - despite the massive health risks associated with it. But while smoking can increase the risk of cancer and heart attacks, the human body is an amazing thing. And once you quit, it begins to repair itself.

  • How we love to over complicate things. First, there were cigarettes, which were smelly and killed half of everyone who used them. Then there were e-cigarettes, awkwardly named, but containing none of the stuff that kills you, like tar or arsenic. (Nicotine doesn’t kill you, otherwise, they wouldn’t be selling it over the counter in chemists to chew or slap on your upper arm).

  • I’m “heartless” and “don’t care about the welfare of children.” At least, that is what I’ll be accused of when I say authorities should not ban the sale of fruit and candy-flavored electronic cigarettes despite the product’s potential appeal to minors. This is because fun flavors also appeal to adult smokers. More importantly, early research indicates that these flavors help smokers switch to vaping [...]
