Public health agencies, tobacco control lobbyists, and governments have spent the last two years attempting to convince Americans that e-cigarettes are just as dangerous as combustible tobacco. The CDC, FDA, California Department of Health, Chicago and countless others have spent millions of taxpayer dollars spreading misinformation. Dr. Tom Frieden, head of the CDC, has even gone so far as to make the incredible comparison that e-cigarettes represent risk similar to HIV/AIDS and Ebola.
It’s time for vapers, public health professionals and taxpayers to stand up and say NO MORE. No more getting in the way of the 9 million Americans (many of whom have given up smoking completely) who now use these products, no more ignoring the fact that FDA-approved nicotine replacements fail more than 90% of the time, no more worrying about revenue at the expense of the health Americans, no more tailor-made science. And most importantly…
No More Casualties of the war on smoking.
Extremely well-funded lobbying groups like Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids, American Cancer Society’s Cancer Action Network and hundreds of other public health associations work tirelessly to demonize vaping while 42 million Americans still smoke.
Meanwhile, governments across the nation are spending untold amounts of your money to mislead, misinform and sometimes outright lie while rushing to tax, ban or limit adult access to e-cigarettes.
It’s time for vapers, smokers and public health professionals to stand up and say NO MORE. No more getting in the way of the 9,000,000 Americans (many of whom have given up cigarettes completely) who now use these products, no more ignoring the fact that FDA-approved nicotine replacements fail more than 90% of the time, no more worrying about revenue over the health of the people, no more tailor-made science.

Opponents of vaping often cite American kids as their motivation, yet wholeheartedly endorse public policy that ensures that parents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles and even grandparents continue to smoke. We believe in protecting kids too – from the loss of their loved ones who were told to keep smoking. We believe in protecting kids from an America that puts a higher value on funding than on the lives of its citizens.
We’re proud to partner with Vape a Vet, a 501(c)(3) supporting current and retired US military personnel. As a registered 501(c)3 charity, the project’s primary goal is to provide active and former service members with the equipment and knowledge necessary to switch to an alternative at absolutely no cost to them.
Our uniformed services smoke at a rate approximately 1.5 higher than the civilian population. When deployed to combat zones, smoking occurs at more than triple the civilian rate. Despite efforts by the Department of Defense, military smoking rates have been largely stagnant for a decade, yet the military spent your tax dollars to sponsor a contest in which youth entrants were encouraged to make a video expressing “skepticism towards e-cigarettes.”
This effort is the first of its kind, spearheaded by Not Blowing Smoke, to break out of the internet and speak directly to the public, who deserve to know The Truth About Vaping, through print and broadcast media. We create the content and edit to the specifications of each media outlet. Concerned parties need only coordinate the logistics of placement in their region.
