E-cig bigwigs reveal plan to SILENCE health critics after raising $110,000 fightback fund in THREE HOURS – Mirror Online
The electronic cigarette industry is preparing to launch a legal bid to silence critics who raise “misleading” health concerns about the safety of “vaping”.
At a fundraising event in California last night, a global group called The Smoke Free Alternatives Trade Association (SFATA) raised a massive $110,000 (£72,000). The “Line in the Sand” meeting was hailed as the most successful fundraiser in the history of the e-cigarette industry. It is part of a global effort to challenge critical voices and tackle legislation designed to clamp down on the potentially dangerous tobacco replacement technology. More events will be held in the coming weeks to pump even more cash into the war chest.
