The Vape Industry Has Fanatical, Vocal, and Fanatical Supporters

As many people know, I have been making many posts and comments about vaping, e-cigarettes, nicotine addiction, and civil lawsuits against the manufacturers, distributors, marketers and sellers of e-cigarettes and vaping products (collectively, the “vape industry”). The vape industry has taken products with the potential to help some tobacco smokers quit their unhealthy and deadly addiction and created an entire new generation of nicotine addicts with an insatiable appetite for their products.

Some people say that the vape industry has employed the same marketing tactics used by “big tobacco” decades ago. Such a statement is only partially true, because the vape industry may have started by using “big tobacco’s playbook,” but it went much further and used social media to market directly to young children and young adults (“youths”). The vape industry employed social medial “influencers” to create a vape culture which made the very act of vaping appear to be hip and cool to youths. The vape industry created vaping devices that looked like the everyday gadgets carried around by youths. Vaping devices which resemble flash drives, pens, cellphone cases, smart watches, jewelry, and even clothing are just some of the products marketed as “stealth vaping” products. The vape industry handed out “free” products at concerts and other public events which were attended by youths. The vape industry went into grade schools and colleges under the guise of providing information about addiction to actually promote vaping. The vape industry made its products taste like candy, gum, popcorn, mint, and other flavors that appeal to youths. The vape industry shamelessly promoted its products as safe to a young and naïve generation. The result is the epidemic which is causing disease and death among youths around the world.

The above are not just my opinions but the opinions of many people who want to end the vaping epidemic. Healthcare professionals, scientists, and concerned parents have created websites, lectured, written peer reviewed journal articles, and taken all manner of actions to educate the public about the dangers of vaping. While the vape industry has hired pseudoscientists and celebrities to refute the claims made against vaping, an enormous backlash against the accurate and truthful information comes from the youths who are addicted to vaping. When vape addicted youths get to comment on an online article, study, post, public service announcement, or advertisement from a law firm looking to help them, they rant and rave about their rights, how stupid the anti-vapers are, and, quite surprisingly how safe vaping is. These youths simply write off the accounts of vaping illness and death as false stories and propaganda, or state that the products which caused such harms are not the vapes they use. The vape industry has indeed created cult members to consume their products.

Fighting this epidemic will take governmental regulation, public education, aggressive parenting, and, yes, civil lawsuits. As with big tobacco, asbestos, surgical mesh, opioids, and other deadly and dangerous products, taking money from these industries was what truly changed their behavior. A civilized society cannot allow greed to overcome morals, ethics, and consciences.

And… as I end most of my posts (rants or tirades)…

“never smoked cigarettes or any other products”

“never smoked cigarettes or any other products”

“Evans said he was 19 when he started vaping and that he never smoked cigarettes or any other products. So says he was surprised when he started having difficulty breathing, allegedly from smoking a Juul product.” (https://abcnews.go.com/GMA/News/juul-user-21-sues-company-hospitalized-coma-days/story?id=66431800).

So, do we believe him? Or does that just depend on whether you are making tons of money from peddling addictive poison?

ARE YOU (OR A FAMILY MEMBER) 25 YEARS OLD OR YOUNGER AND ADDICTED TO A JUUL DEVICE?

If you or a family member is 25 YEARS OLD OR YOUNGER and ADDICTED to a JUUL device, you (of that family member) may be entitled to compensation. If your first experience with nicotine was through a Juul device and you are now addicted, you should know about the following lawsuit: Bradley Colgate, et al. v. Juul Labs, Inc., et al. (Case MDL No. 2913). Treating this case, and other similar cases, like it does with many “mass torts / multidistrict litigation” cases, the federal court system has consolidated the cases into one courtroom, and that courtroom is in the United Stated District Court for Northern California. With this development, I believe that things have taken a major, and positive, turn for the victims of the vape and e-cigarette industries.

VAPING DISEASE GETS A NAME – EVALI (E-cigarette or Vaping Product Use-Associated Lung Injury)

“The vaping-related condition that has sickened hundreds of people has a new name: EVALI, or e-cigarette or vaping product use-associated lung injury. The new name, noted Friday in newly issued guidance for clinicians from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is a sign of the rapidly evolving investigation into the illness, which has sickened 1,299 people across 49 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The case count has continued to climb week after week.” (https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/vaping-related-illness-has-a-new-name-evali/).

The Vape Industry Hired “Influencers” to Target Young People

“In July, a congressional report found that Juul Labs Inc. had spent more than $200,000 to recruit influencers and market to young people. Now, the FDA, Federal Trade Commission and Congress are all investigating the social media marketing of e-cigs.” (https://nypost.com/2019/10/15/vape-influencers-say-theyre-the-real-victims-of-vaping-illness-crisis/).One example of a site that seems to recruit influencers states, “By joining the VAPORDNA Influencer Network, you will be able to promote VAPORDNA’s expansive product line, exclusive offers and earn 10%-20% commission on sales.” (https://vapordna.com/pages/influencer-program). Fortunately, the Feds are looking into this tactic. “Federal agencies are going after companies that paid social media “influencers” to promote vaping products, the US Food and Drug Administration announced Friday.” (https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/07/health/fda-ftc-influencer-marketing-vaping-ecigarettes-bn/index.html).

The Learned Folks at YALE Say Vaping Is Bad

While the vape shop owners and online vale sellers will tell you vaping is harmless, you know better, right? Well, if you don’t, the medical experts at the prestigious Yale do, right? Yes, they do.

“In his imaging studies of adults who use e-cigarettes, Stephen Baldassarri, MD, an internist at Yale Medicine, has begun to gather information on the factors that influence nicotine delivery from e-cigarettes and whether vaping promotes cessation from conventional cigarette smoking. Teens cannot participate in such studies, but “we all agree that e-cigs are not a good thing for youth and nonsmokers,” Dr. Baldassarri says.” (https://www.yalemedicine.org/stories/teen-vaping/)

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.

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

California Warns about Vaping

“The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) urges everyone to refrain from vaping, no matter the substance or source, until current investigations are complete. Since June 2019, CDPH has received reports that 90 people in California who have a history of vaping were hospitalized for severe breathing problems and lung damage, and two people have died. Across the U.S., there are over 500 reports of lung damage associated with vaping across 38 states and 1 U.S. territory, and more reports are coming in nearly every day.” (https://tobaccofreeca.com/e-cigarettes/vaping-related-lung-illness-a-summary-of-the-public-health-risks-and-recommendations-for-the-public/).

“We are learning from this investigation that lung damage can happen very suddenly to people who vape, including people who have not been vaping for a long time, and young, healthy people who do not have lung disease or other health problems. This is different from most other health issues caused by vaping and smoking, which happen over a long time and can be worse in people who have other medical conditions. Additionally, most patients do not have a recent history of smoking regular cigarettes, suggesting these lung issues are exclusively related to vaping. Many types of vape products may be causing the lung damage from vaping.” (https://tobaccofreeca.com/e-cigarettes/vaping-related-lung-illness-a-summary-of-the-public-health-risks-and-recommendations-for-the-public/).

If you were addicted to tobacco and are using a vape device as an alternative nicotine device to help you quit… and your physician agrees with that decision… I take no issue with that use… If you are just vaping for fun… please stop.

If you or a loved one suffered catastrophic injury, including, but not limited to, stroke, seizure, serious lung disease, miscarriage, or delivery of a baby suffering from birth defects after using e-cigarette devices… If your child or teenager has become addicted to e-cigarettes (vapes)… Please contact a lawyer and consider contacting my firm. I am Paul J. Molinaro, M.D., J.D. I am a California Attorney and California Physician. It would be my privilege to hear your story and tell it to a judge. I want to help put an end to this crisis by helping victims file civil lawsuits to recoup their losses and take away the profits of the vaping industry. I offer free consultations for potential vaping cases. 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.
