Scorched earth smoking ban amendment will ensure that Nicoderm funded activists will stop harassing lawmakers and halt RWJF rent seeking legislation
After thinking about it for awhile I’ve determined there may be a way to get language inserted into a final smoking ban bill that is sure to drive the special interest funded lobbyists apoplectic.
After some research we've discovered that the secondhand effects from alternative nicotine products, such as the patch, gum, and lozenges; whose demand may increase after smoking bans are enacted, have been found to cause a significant number of nicotine poisoning cases in children; therefore in order for the state to further reduce its potential liability, alternative nicotine products like Nicoderm, Nicorette, Nicotrol, Commit, etc. must not be sanctioned as a safe alternative product by state or local health departments, quitlines, or other non-governmental agencies such as the American Lung Association, American Cancer Society, Blue Cross Blue Shield, AMA, etc.
The medical website highlighting the nicotine poisoning information can be found here:
'Nicotine poisoning results from too much nicotine. Acute nicotine poisoning usually occurs in young children who accidentally chew on nicotine gum or patches'.
CTA would love to be in chambers to see the faces of the RWJF (Nicoderm) funded smoking ban lobbyists (ALA, ACS, CTFK, AMA, etc.) when the amendment above is proposed, and / or inserted into smoking ban legislation.
