The launch of the media campaign by California Department of Public Health on Monday is a $75 million boondoggle spreading misinformation, confusion. and scaring folks into believing that vaping is as bad as smoking.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Truth that officials, elected or appointed failed to do due diligence in forming their decisions to promote the reduction of the use of combusted cigarettes.
Which, of course is the antithesis to their bottom line. How could a FURTHER drop in cigarette smoking possibly be an obstacle to public health officials and NGO’s? Their money streams and relevance rely on the middle aged demo to keep smoking until they die. NRT’s available at the drug store have a low success rate. So low, that it’s on par with other methods like cold turkey, group therapy and Chantix. Yes, Chantix played a role in 600 suicides. Vaping? None so far. (I am sure if a body was extremely motivated, they could find some way to tie it in.)
