Stop a Synthetic Nicotine Ban

Language that would add synthetic nicotine to the FDA’s premarket authorization process may be included in the 2022 Omnibus Budget Bill. In no uncertain terms, this would be a near-immediate ban on vapor and smoke-free products containing synthetic nicotine (like nicotine pouches, toothpicks, etc.).

Please take a moment TODAY and send a message to your federal officials urging them to reject a ban on synthetic nicotine!

This is a must-pass budget bill which is even more urgent due to the inclusion of support for Ukraine.

IOWANS SHOULD NOT USE BLACK MARKET THC OILS IN VAPING PRODUCTS

Des Moines, IA (September 11, 2019) – Iowans who vape should not be adding black market THC oils to their vape systems, IFAST President Sarah Linden said today.

Results published in The New England Journal of Medicine on Friday found 84 percent of the patients who are suffering from respiratory symptoms self-reported inhaling a form of THC oil purchased on the black market. Researchers acknowledged the study was based on reports by patients who may be reluctant to report illicit drug use and the percentage of those who used THC oil is likely higher.

“If black market THC oil was being added to bottles of water and causing illness, federal officials wouldn’t advise the public to stop drinking water. Instead, they would investigate and report on exactly what was causing the illnesses,” Linden said. “It would be a public health tragedy if vapers returned to smoking, something we know kills over 480,000 people a year.”

Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are under fire for releasing generalized warnings advising the public to stop vaping. Michael Siegel, a Boston University public health professor, said the CDC is being “unnecessarily vague” when describing the illnesses as simply vaping-related while many people may be injured by vaping THC oil. “Based on what we know now, I think there’s enough to tell people: Don’t vape THC oils – especially products that are bought off the street,” Siegel said. “There are certain things the agency could be recommending right now that could potentially save lives and prevent this from happening by being much more specific.”

The FDA told state officials last week that lab tests found nothing unusual in nicotine vape products which were collected from sick patients. Scott Gottlieb, former FDA Commissioner, confirms the illnesses and deaths around the country “do not appear to be from legally sold vapes.” Other state and federal health authorities, including the Iowa Department of Public Health, have stated they are focusing on counterfeit THC substances as the likely cause of these respiratory illnesses.

E-cigarettes have been on the market since 2007 and this flood of lung illnesses only started three months ago. New York University public health professor and former science director for the anti-tobacco Truth Initiative, Ray Niaura, said the recent wave of respiratory illnesses means “it is unlikely (that the problem) is e-cigarettes that have been on the market for a long time. More likely, it’s … people are vaping a lot of other things besides nicotine, such as synthetic cannabis or contaminated THC that is making an appearance and leading to these bad consequences.”

The New England Journal of Medicine also acknowledges that in the 12 years e-cigarettes have been on the market in the US, there have been no related reports of pulmonary illnesses or deaths linked to the use of e-cigarette products (e.g., devices, liquids, refillable pods, or cartridges).

Nicotine vape products which are sold in vape stores across Iowa have been regulated by the Food and Drug Administration since August 2017 for their ingredients, marketing, labeling, and other features. The FDA has conducted more than 1,000 inspections of vape stores across the country, including Iowa, to ensure they are adhering to regulations. Gottlieb suggests THC oils, which have thus far evaded federal oversight, need to be similarly regulated by the FDA to prevent future respiratory illness outbreaks.

“THC oil is illegal in the state of Iowa and is not being sold in our stores. We urge consumers to not use these products as they may be damaging to your health,” Linden said.

ACS PRO VAPING IN FIGHT AGAINST TOBACCO

The American Cancer Society (ACS) has admitted the American public has been misinformed about the dangers of vaping – and is now going to promote it as an alternative to smoking.

The leading health organization has set out in a public statement that it is tobacco, not nicotine, which contains the cancer-causing chemicals and carcinogens and states there’s an “urgent need” for consumer education about the risks posed by different tobacco products

While the ACS had already confirmed vaping was a safer alternative to smoking cigarettes in a report earlier this year, its tougher stance on eradicating the current smoking epidemic through actively promoting e-cigarettes and other cessation tools, is being seen as a positive step by vaping advocacy groups and public health experts.

It said in the statement: “Although many Electronic Nicotine Device Systems [such as e-cigarettes] deliver nicotine, flavor additives, and other chemicals, they do not burn tobacco, a process that yields an estimated 7000 chemicals, including at least 70 carcinogens. Thus, public misunderstanding underscores the urgent need for consumer education about the absolute and relative risks posed by different tobacco products and to reinvigorate smokers’ understanding of the importance of quitting combustible tobacco.”

Shining a spotlight on the swathe of misinformation being fed to the public by action groups and amongst smokers themselves, it explained: “Many consumers are misinformed about the harms of electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS). Many adults believe, erroneously, that ENDS are as harmful as combustible tobacco products, and the level of public understanding has deteriorated over time.

“In 2012, only 11.5% of respondents to a national survey held this view. By 2015, 35.7% of respondents mistakenly believed that the harm associated with electronic cigarettes was ‘about the same’ as that of smoking conventional cigarettes. At the same time, the Monitoring the Future study reports that, as of 2017, ‘e-cigarettes have one of the lowest levels of perceived risk for regular use of all drugs, including alcohol among adolescents.’

“Whereas complete information on all the potential risks and benefits of ENDS is not yet available, there is sufficient to allow ACS to act now with a clear focus on the primary goal of ending deadly combustible tobacco use, which is responsible for approximately a one-half million deaths per year and 30% of all cancer deaths in the United States.”

Talking about how it hopes to help eradicate tobacco smoking, one of its key strategies, amongst others, is to educate consumers on alternatives and communicate that “although the long-term effects of ENDS are not known, current-generation ENDS are markedly less harmful than combustible tobacco products”.

Earlier this year a study by pharmaceutical development company Pinney Associates indicated that while most adults are aware that nicotine is the addictive factor in cigarettes, most also wrongly assume that it causes cancer.

Additionally, the compiled data of 1,736 adults pointed out that smokers tend to be more misinformed than non-smokers, with 52.5 per cent of smokers vs 14.6 per cent of non-smokers, linked nicotine to cancer.
