Biden administration considers cutting
nicotine in cigarettes to make them 'non-
addictive' (while super potent marijuana
gets the greenlight in most states)

The Biden administration will consider forcing cigarette makers to reduce the nicotine in their cigarettes to levels that aren't addicting—at the same time more than half of U.S. states have legalized marijuana in some form. The administration already was considering banning menthol flavoring in cigarettes, but while they've been chewing over that rule, they've discussed going even further with the possible nicotine limits, according to the Wall Street Journal.(Snip) 'Marijuana smokers tend to inhale more deeply and hold their breath longer than cigarette smokers, which leads to a greater exposure per breath to tar,' the Lung Association says.


Studies find that lowering nicotine makes people smoke more cigarettes and inhale more deeply so as to get the desired nicotine dosage, and in the process they inhale an outlandish array of harmful additives ("flavoring agents" like ammonia, for one, which just happens to boost nicotine activity in the brain). Is there anything the government can't make worse? Task First Son Humper with this project; he's an expert on addiction and is also the smartest person Boy Joey knows.

I wonder if the settlement deal between the cigarette manufacturers and the various levels of government which sued years ago might prevent their being forced to make cigarettes 'non-addictive' because there isn't a reason to smoke otherwise.

Some Ldotter bro called me “libtard”over this. But I maintain if the CDC wanted to solve a major health crises, they would do their best to outlaw tobacco. 400,000 plus die each year of smoking related illness. Not to mention the pain and suffering it results in. A little pot after a hard days work, not so sure how much damage that would inflict. Probably less than too much Jim Bean. P. S. I don’t smoke pot. Well, at least in the last 45 years.

It takes little brains to realize that legal marijuana will not only lead to lower IQs, traffic deaths, and greater addiction rates, but also lung, brain, and circulatory disease rates the same or worse than tobacco.

Has anyone noticed that the 400,000 deaths per year from smoking cigarettes noted by #3 hasn't changed in several decades despite smoking rates taking a pretty hefty dip? As there are 11 million illegal aliens in the country for the past few decades so the deaths from smoking have remained the same despite changing circumstances. Both numbers come from the left and are used by the left. Reducing nicotine in cigarettes will cause people to smoke more cigarettes, period. I've been smoking for 53 years, am in good health and have no intention of quitting, CDC or otherwise.

I'm not a fan of smoking but when over 50% of adults smoked the average adult weighed about 50 pounds less than today. Lots of people traded in their cigarettes for cookies, candy, pies, cake, ice cream. candy bars, potato chips, and taco chips.

The US will likely reach a “tipping point” over the next few weeks when supply of the COVID-19 vaccine will outpace those willing to receive it, according to a report released this week. “While timing may differ by state, we estimate that across the U.S. as a whole we will likely reach a tipping point on vaccine enthusiasm in the next 2 to 4 weeks,” the nonprofit Kaiser Family Foundation said in the report published Tuesday. “Once this happens, efforts to encourage vaccination will become much harder, presenting a challenge to reaching the levels of herd immunity that are expected to be needed,” the report said.

New York—Amazon is rolling out pay-by-palm technology at some Whole Foods grocery stores near its headquarters to make paying quicker and more convenient. The technology, called Amazon One, lets shoppers scan the palm of their hand and connect it to a credit card or Amazon account. After the initial set up, which Amazon says takes less than a minute, shoppers can scan their hand at the register to pay for groceries without having to open their wallets. Amazon first launched the technology late last year and at the time said the technology could be used at stadiums, office buildings and other retailers.

They routinely provide top-notch care to transgender patients for everything from cancer to the common cold,” Goodrich outlined Tuesday.
