Did the FDA Do Enough Fast Enough to Stop the Vaping Crisis?

“It’s time to hit the stop button
on this giant chemistry experiment
being conducted on the public,
a large portion of them teens and young adults.”

“Not a single e-cigarette on the market, including JUUL, the most popular brand, has gone through FDA regulatory review. In 2017, the agency allowed the products to stay on the market while it delayed reviewing them — a decision a federal judge recently ruled against. The FDA should never have allowed e-cigarettes onto the market without determining whether they benefit public health — a major requirement of the Tobacco Control Act is to prevent just this type of situation. It’s time to hit the stop button on this giant chemistry experiment being conducted on the public, a large portion of them teens and young adults.” (https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/27/perspectives/vaping-epidemic-juul-e-cigarettes-fda/index.html).

An Open Letter to Those in the “Vape Industry” Who Have Marketed Their Products Directly to Children

An Open Letter to Those in the “Vape Industry” Who Have Marketed Their Products Directly to Children

To paraphrase Beto O’Rourke, “Hell yes, we are coming for you.” Your greed has overcome your morals, ethics, and consciences. You have taken a play out of “big tobacco’s” playbooks and decided to get an entire generation hooked on your addictive poisons. While the government uses legislation and statutes to quash your predatory practices, plaintiffs’ lawyers will be hitting you in the only place you care about… your bank accounts. Ask Purdue Pharma how it feels (https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/16/us/purdue-pharma-bankruptcy-filing/index.html) to be on in the defendant’s chair in such lawsuits.

While your products may have positive attributes with actual tobacco smokers who are trying to quit, you knew there was little money in targeting only those who could actually benefit from your e-cigarettes. So, you decided to create a new, and much larger, group of consumers – our country’s teenagers. Sound familiar? It should. It’s what Purdue Pharma did with OxyContin. Purdue Pharma had a product that had benefit for those few patients with truly intractable pain. OxyContin was a life changer for such patients when used properly and in the right patient. OxyContin has true and measurable benefits. However, there were not enough of those patients to make this addictive drug into a multi-billion dollar market for Purdue Pharma. Seeing the potential in getting just about any patient with pain hooked on OxyContin, the opioid manufacturers and distributors promoted the campaign to make “Pain” the “Fifth Vital Sign.” This campaign was incredibly successful and opened addictive opioids like OxyContin to patients who did not have any medical need for it.

Putting profit ahead of lives is disgusting. What the vape industry is doing is indefensible. They not only need to be held accountable but be disgorged of their profits. Those profits should be used to compensate the people that have become addicted to their products, the people who have developed lung disease in just a few months after using their products, and the families of those that they have killed with their products.

And… as I end most of my posts… If you suffered a stroke, seizure, serious lung disease, miscarriage, delivered a baby suffering from birth defects, or suffered other catastrophic injury after using e-cigarette devices, or if your teenager has become addicted to e-cigarettes (vapes), contact a lawyer. It is our goal to help put an end to this crisis by helping the victims file civil lawsuits to recoup their losses. If you are located in the State of California and want help, please call Attorney and Physician Paul J. Molinaro, M.D., J.D. today for a free consultation.

WHO AGREES WITH GOVERNOR CUOMO? I DO… VAPE TARGETS YOUNG PEOPLE!

Well, on this issue, I sure do.

“”Manufacturers of fruit and candy-flavored e-cigarettes are intentionally
and recklessly targeting young people, and today we’re taking action to put an end to it,” Cuomo said.”

HEY VAPING INDUSTRY, DON’T WORRY JUST YET

“Trump’s crackdown on flavored vaping products unlikely to take effect soon” (https://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-vape-ban-crackdown-on-flavored-vaping-products-unlikely-to-take-effect-soon/). Fortunately for the vaping industry, the wheels of government and justice grind ever so slowly. The vaping industry will be able to make a few billion before anything gets done, and then it can spend a few billions slowing down whatever else might be done.

Enacting More Laws – Not Enough to Curb Teenage Vaping

“More states are targeting teen vaping, but health advocates say it’s not enough to curb use” (https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/07/01/more-states-targeting-teen-vaping-health-advocates-say-its-not-enough-curb-use/?utm_term=.48be2618cbc0).

Maybe civil suits that hit these billion dollar vaping companies where it hurts (bank accounts) will be enough. If you suffered a miscarriage or delivered a baby suffering from birth defects after using JUUL devices, or if your teenager has become addicted to JUUL vapes, contact contact a lawyer. It is our goal to help put an end to this crisis by helping the victims file civil lawsuits to recoup their losses.

Juuling is Cool, Chic, and Artistic

Well, except for the wet lung thing, the exploding device, and all those pesky toxins that get inhaled. Other than that, though, e-cigarettes including the Juul are all the rage, at least that’s what the marketing, directed at children, says.

“There’s what appears to be the first death by vape, once considered the millennial response to cigarettes, the potential safe replacement to the oddly human oral fixation of sticking something that blazes fire on one end into one’s mouth. Firefighters responding to a fire earlier this month found 38-year-old Tallmadge D’Elia with severe injuries to his face. Officials believe the lithium battery, used to generate heat for the smoke that’s emitted at the end of a vape, got so hot it exploded, causing the fire and killing D’Elia. Then there was the case of an 18-year-old hostess at a rural Pennsylvania restaurant who decided to try using e-cigarettes, according to a case study in Pediatrics. Within three weeks, the woman developed a rather nasty condition—“wet lung”—that included coughing, labored breathing, and stabbing pains in her chest, eventually sending her into respiratory failure.” (https://www.thedailybeast.com/vaping-killed-vapers-dont-care).

Yeah, yeah, but adults successfully use e-cigarettes to quit real cigarettes, right? Maybe not. “Some people believe e-cigarettes may help lower nicotine cravings in those who are trying to quit smoking. However, e-cigarettes are not an FDA-approved quit aid, and there is no conclusive scientific evidence on the effectiveness of e-cigarettes for long-term smoking cessation. It should be noted that there are seven FDA-approved quit aids that are proven safe and can be effective when used as directed.” (https://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/drugfacts/electronic-cigarettes-e-cigarettes).

IS JUUL WORTH FIFTEEN BILLION DOLLARS?

“Despite public health concerns and increased scrutiny from the Food and Drug Administration that have led to bans by local governments, the Wall Street Journal reported that the start-up raised $650 million in funding earlier this month, valuing the firm at $15 billion — a figure well beyond the $1 billion valuation required to be dubbed a Silicon Valley unicorn.” (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2018/07/30/e-cigarette-maker-juul-targeted-teens-with-false-claims-of-safety-lawsuit-claims/?utm_term=.5fafa5a9e24b). And, that money is being made from children… and, children are the targets of their ads. “”[E-cigarette producers] ignore absolutely everything that was ever agreed to around combustible cigarettes,” says Jackler. His collection of e-cigarette ads is rife with such misleading and targeted messages that hawk everything from pseudoscientific health claims to kid-friendly bubblegum flavors and “back to school” sales. “You have pictures of doctors saying, ‘Use this e-cigarette.’ You have all sorts of claims in e-cigarettes that are the kinds of things that would have been forbidden. E-cigarettes show up on television and radio,” he continued.” (https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/electronic-cigarettes-millennial-appeal-ushers-next-generation-nicotine-addicts-180968747/).

3.6 Million Middle and High School Students Used E-cigarettes in 2018

“Introduced in 2015, Juul e-cigarettes have skyrocketed in popularity among youth across the United States, leading to what public health officials have called a youth e-cigarette “epidemic.” In 2018, e-cigarette use among high school students rose by 78 percent, and more than 3.6 million middle and high school students used e-cigarettes – an alarming increase of 1.5 million students in one year.” (https://www.tobaccofreekids.org/what-we-do/industry-watch/e-cigarettes). The growth in sales to teens goes along with their incredible profits. “In a letter to investors in May, Juul said its first-quarter sales were $528 million, an increase of about 23% from the previous quarter’s revenue, which it said in the letter was $430 million.” (https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-06-11/juul-tells-investors-sales-are-climbing-again-despite-flavor-pullback).

Defendant Juul Now Being Now Sued by Teens in Florida and Alabama. Where Next?

In lawsuits already filed in Florida and Alabama, Plaintiffs are accusing Juul of marketing addictive products known to be harmful to teens. (https://soupwire.com/students-file-juul-lawsuit/). “Now, just as tobacco companies have been forced out of the cycle of concern and reassurance that they’ve maintained for decades, Juul looks as if it’s jumping in. Unlike mentholated, filtered, or “light” cigarettes, studies have found that e-cigarettes are at least somewhat healthier to smoke than the traditional model. But as e-cigarettes have gained popularity and researchers have begun studying their long-term effects, they’ve found evidence linking vaping to potential dangers to the heartrespiratory system, and brain—and suggesting that, regardless of Juul’s claimed mission to help adult smokers quit, e-cigarette use can lead younger people to take up smoking. Juul’s serious new television ads don’t address any of that. Instead, the company’s marketing strategy relies on a now familiar sleight of hand, ignoring this mounting evidence of health complications and pivoting to a narrative of relative safety. The ads bank on Big Tobacco’s villainous reputation, earned through decades of scheming and misrepresentation, to make Juul seem noble in contrast: like an e-cigarette hero, swooping in to save the day.” (https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2019/06/juul-big-tobacco-marketing/592174/).
