In addition to those facing the most serious charges of starting fires intentionally, authorities said another 53 people are facing legal action for not complying with the state’s fire ban and 47 people have faced legal action for discarding a lit cigarette or match on land.
JUUL is just one of the manufacturers being hit with new regulations on e-cigarettes and vaping products.
JUUL says… There is NO Vitamin E Acetate in their product so why us? The FDA is going forward to eliminate fruity flavors that interests youth. JUUL and the other manufacturers will only have 2 flavors left Regular Tobacco and Menthol for their shoppers to choose from. The FDA feels that this will eliminate the use of tobacco related products..
This will have a financial effect for the stock market also. Due to the fact that it will be another hit on the tobacco industry. Tobacco use fell by approximately 1/3 in 2017 due to e-cigarettes and vaping.
The History of the e-cigarette is very interesting. I am not sure why the FDA and CDC did not step up when the e-cigarette was introduced in the USA in 2006 – 2007. What was George W. Bush thinking? I know for a fact that Ethylene glycol was a main ingredient in the E-cigarette when they were still coming from China in 2010. So why didn’t Barrack Obama take them off the market when they knew the E-cigarette was no good? Let’s see what Trump does now… Will this health hazard be banned for good?
This product was poised for trouble from the beginning. The formula was changed by the USA manufacturers who replaced Ethylene glycol (Antifreeze) with PROPYLENE GLYCOL AND GLYCERINE. So no testing on the lab rats for the Chinese version and USA version which has no real testing to back up the release of the e-cigarette or vaping into the USA.
In 2006 China started exporting e-cigarettes containing Ethylene glycol, the primary ingredient in antifreeze, has the chemical formula C2H6O2.
The warning about e-cigarettes containing this chemical came out in the news in 2010. That is 4 years after being on the USA market and still the US did nothing to stop this product. NO RECALL… NOTHING
So why in the world was this allowed by our country to be used as a consumer product in the first place???? Case after case has been reported about Pneumonia and other illnesses related to wet lung syndrome, ARDS.
You might as well say, “People were better off using cigarettes and just dying from cancer, at least they lived longer”.
INGREDIENTS FROM JUUL’s WEBSITE :
PROPYLENE GLYCOL AND GLYCERINE (30/60 MIX)
(UP TO 90%)
Propylene glycol and glycerine are clear liquids that are used to create a visible vapor, and are commonly used by the medical, beauty and food industries. A majority, if not all e-liquids, contain propylene glycol (PG).
Benzoic acid is a naturally occurring ingredient, found in tobacco and other substances. When combined with nicotine as part of our nicotine salts formulation, it helps provide cigarette-like satisfaction.
Nicotine is a stimulant that comes from the tobacco plant. We use highly purified/USP grade/pharmaceutical grade nicotine.
JUULpods flavors consist of both naturally occurring and artificial flavor ingredients which provide the specific taste profile for each flavor.
Propylene glycol (IUPAC name: propane-1,2-diol) is an organic compound with the chemical formula CH3CH(OH)CH2OH. It is a viscous, colorless liquid, which is nearly odorless but possesses a faintly sweet taste. Containing two alcohol groups, it is classed as a diol. It is miscible with a broad range of solvents, including water, acetone, and chloroform. In general, glycols are non-irritating, have very low volatility and very low toxicity.
It is produced on a large scale primarily for the production of polymers. In the European Union, it has the E-number E1520 for food applications. For cosmetics and pharmacology, the number is E490. Propylene glycol is also present in propylene glycol alginate, which is known as E405. Propylene glycol is a compound which is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under 21 CFR x184.1666 and is also approved by FDA for certain uses as an indirect food additive. Propylene glycol is approved and used as a vehicle for topical, oral and some intravenous pharmaceutical preparations in U.S. and in Europe.
Have they ever had any studies on Smoking or Vaping Propylene glycol. This product / chemical is in the same category as Acetone. I don’t think I would vape or smoke acetone. Acetone, or propanone, is the organic compound with the formula (CH3)2CO.
Acetone is a colorless, volatile, flammable liquid and is the simplest and smallest ketone.
Acetone serves as an important solvent in its own right, typically for cleaning purposes in laboratories
Senator Amy Klobuchar believes you should not go against your parties wishes. But instead Senator Klobuchar thinks you should back a pack of partisanship options instead of standing tall and proud and speaking out against partisan.
Senator Amy Klobuchar attacked REP. Tulsi Gabbard for not voting in solidarity with the democratic party. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard stood firm on the fact that this was partisan and dividing the country.
Perhaps Senator Amy Klobuchar should take a few lessons from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard on integrity, honor or at least some class…
Democratic party appears not to consider truth, honesty and the American voters view on bringing this country back on track. Both parties need to stop dividing of the country.
Democrats have vowed since the Presidential Election that they would impeach President Trump
Corruption, exaggeration’s and deception on the democratic party trail. Dishonest politics at it’s finest.
Popular opinion says Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is” highly likeable” over Senator Amy Klobuchar for President. The Americans are tired of lies and deceptive candidates who are there for their own personal gain.
Support is rising in the polls for Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. An honest upstanding candidate that stands on her own.
Nope not the “BIG” retail store following me, not even the stores under cover security…
Shopping these days you really have to watch your surroundings. If I would not have been aware, I don’t think I would have caught on to what was happening…
The other day I had to go to store for somethings in the electronic section. I was noticing this young man maybe about 13 or 14 years of age following me.
Every Isle I stopped on he came down the isle. Then he was standing behind me. I then noticed he kept pointing his phone towards me.
Both my wallet and phone were in my back pocket. I was not sure if he wanted my wallet or what. So I turned around and had my back to the shelf. He came and stood right next to me and put his phone by his side, but still pointing at me.
I thought this was to be very odd. He continued to follow me for about 20 minutes until the area was getting crowded and he finally left me alone.
I think he was trying to hack my phone and take credit card information from my phone.
I do not carry my credit cards in a cloud, online wallet or any other place stored on my phone. It is too dangerous with advanced technology that is easliy used by criminals these days.
So many find it to be handy. Well it’s handy for the criminals also.
I am old fashioned when it comes to what information I will share with my phone.
There is a common hacker tool called “Midnight Raids”. The only requirement for this program is 2 working phones and a good Wi-Fi signal.
It will take all your information.
So be safe and keep an eye out for who is following you around.
It came to light last year that a handful of rich left-wing donors led by Michael Bloomberg have collaborated with New York University Law School to recruit, place and pay for lawyers in attorney generals’ offices around the United States. These lawyers, compensated outside the executive structure of state government, are embedded in state governments to pursue lawsuits that fit Bloomberg’s liberal agenda.
Over 300,000 people nation wide joined in demonstrations across France on Tuesday. Calls for Macron not to raise taxes. Reports from France say at least 300 people arrested, 110 injured and 2 dead after mass confrontation.
Macron’s complaints are that the “French complain too Much”, to raising taxes and implementing reform across the board for wages to retirement and not for the good of the people.
Now Protesters have taken to the streets of Paris, France and are chanting “We Want Trump”.
The people of France are enraged over the decisions by President Macron to raise taxes, especially after taking the deal that put this country into poverty. The deal that was made with Obama along with the U.N. to expand the immigration “Must Take” sanctions on the wealthier countries. These countries were flooded with immigrants by the 10’s of thousands and France was one of the countries.
This was enforcement and advocacy of strict obedience to authority at the expense of personal freedom.
Crimes ranging from robbery, murders to sexual assault. Both the men, women and children of France have been harmed. The countries have reported crimes tripled after the first year the immigrants arrived.
Little to No News spread across the world. Very few received news of any trouble until footage of the immigrant villages being set on fire by the locals.
Just remember these are just a few issues. These countries have taken on the burden and debt to house, feed, cloth and to render medical care for every single immigrant that came to their country.
The debt started to chip away at the wealth of France and the people of France. Many of these countries are now close to being bankrupt and 3rd world countries financially.
Now the tables are turning on Macron after unemployment and crime rates have sky rocketed in France that had 1/3 the crime rate before the sanctions.
Amazing how a country as France, that has been torn apart by the immigrant movement within their own country have been silenced by the governing power.
This really is not acceptable. Is the FSC in a position to address these issues? -Interneter The Barbados Stock Exchange Inc.
