Smoke Screen: Big Vape is copying Big Tobacco’s playbook

Liza Gross just published an excellent in-depth investigation that puts the e-cigarette advocacy network, including such key players as David Sweanor, Bill Godshall, Brad Rodu, and Joel Nitzkin as well as the tobacco companies’ network of right wing think tanks that are supporting e-cigarettes in the larger context of the tobacco industry’s efforts to deny science and keep people smoking.
She also talks about how any scientist who presents data they don’t like gets attacked.
This is must reading for anyone interested in e-cigarettes and the whole harm reduction debate.
The story, “Smoke Screen: Big Vape is copying Big Tobacco’s playbook,” is available here.
