Obama admin and pharmaceutical funded (RICO guilty) anti-tobacco activists target the tobacco industry....again

This article discusses the tobacco industry's request to have an unfavorable and questionable ruling dismissed.

http://www.dailyfinance.com/story/company-news/big-tobacco-obama-administration-duels-in-supreme-court/19366023/

Banzhaf (executive director of the group Action on Smoking and Health) says he doesn't think the industry's arguments hold merit. "The great majority of RICO cases don't involve organized crime like the Mafia, but rather involve businesses that engage in fraud and deception....

Businesses that engage in fraud & deception? Like when alternative nicotine (Nicoderm) manufacturer Johnson & Johnson company uses its private foundation Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) to covertly fund anti-tobacco groups and anti-tobacco legislation (smoking bans) in order to get laws passed which increase J & J (Nicoderm, Nicotrol, Nicorette, Commit, etc.) product sales?

If the tobacco industry is guilty of RICO charges, then so is the pharmaceutical nicotine industry and the anti-tobacco groups funded by them; groups like Banzhaf which have benefitted from RWJF support. To date RWJF has funded anti-tobacco groups $446+ million, as lawmakers are deceived about the source of those lobbying funds.

Quintessential argument against smoking bans

If your local government is legislating secondhand smoke because they claim secondhand smoke is a WORKPLACE health hazard.......shouldn't they consult with the authority on workplace health hazards? –OSHA

And in fact air quality testing of secondhand smoke results compared to OSHA permissible exposure limits proves there is no health hazard. Results found SHS is 2.6 - 25,000 times SAFER than OSHA workplace regulations.

Secondhand smoke air quality test results here:

OSHA itself has stated regarding secondhand smoke:

"Field studies of environmental tobacco smoke indicate that under normal conditions, the components in tobacco smoke are diluted below existing Permissible Exposure Levels (PELS.) as referenced in the Air Contaminant Standard (29 CFR 1910.1000)...It would be very rare to find a workplace with so much smoking that any individual PEL would be exceeded."

Want to quit smoking?....new study says skip the Nicoderm

Despite the over-promotion of nicotine replacement therapies by drug companies and anti-tobacco activists, the most successful method used by ex-smokers is unassisted cessation, according to a new policy forum in PLoS Medicine. In the article, researchers from the School of Public Health at the University of Sydney, Australia take a critical look at most tobacco control campaigns, which emphasize that serious attempts at quitting smoking must be pharmacologically or professionally mediated.

As far as CTA is concerned, that's how this editor quit smoking nearly 30 years ago. But our real reason for promoting cold turkey is to make sure the pharmaceutical interests that funded smoking ban legislation, RWJF (J&J) do not profit from the economy damaging results.
