Urgent Call to Action in Phoenix! Michigan Call to Action reminder! Heads up Vermont! Exposing ANTZ lies about “gateway effect” that lead to bad ANTZ policies around the world. A promising new vape trade org. launches. Join CASAA’s social media campaign against ballot initiatives in Colorado and Oregon by sharing these “Vote No” graphics!

VERMONT: (HEADS UP!) ANTZ are lying to your state reps about youth vaping to get non-tobacco flavored low risk alternatives to smoking banned. Record low smoking rates show vaping is NOT leading to smoking, yet ANTZ continue to claim otherwise. #QuitLying



EXPOSING ANTZ BIAS: Although nicotine itself isn’t carcinogenic & 2,000+ never-smokers PER DAY start SMOKING, ACS study ignores record low smoking in young adults & is more concerned that they are apparently choosing vapor products INSTEAD OF cigarettes.

MICHIGAN: (CALL TO ACTION REMINDER!) Gov. Whitmer is again attempting an end run around legislative process, using MDHHS to ban flavors for ADULTS (it’s already illegal to sell ANY vapor products to anyone under 21.) HEARING is next Tuesday, Oct. 20th!



EXPOSING ANTZ LIES: “Gateway” claim continues to be debunked by real-world observations. Unfortunately, the opposite seems to be true – as vaping rates decline, smoking rates appear to increase or declines start to stall.

BAD ANTZ POLICIES: A view of a world where people trying to HELP others quit smoking are deemed criminals. Note that the smoking rate for males 15+ yrs old in Argentina is still 21%. In the US, with legal vaping (for now,) the same group is down to 14.4%.

IN THE NEWS: Congratulations to Amanda Wheeler and Char Owen on launching the American Vapor Manufacturers Association (AVM)! CASAA looks forward to future collaboration with AVM to protect consumer access to affordable & effective vapor products!



BAD ANTZ POLICIES: Once again proving “bans don’t work,” MA flavor ban pushes cigarette (and vaping product) purchases into nearby states and a growing black market, instead of forcing folks to quit. It seems the ANTZ will never learn! #VapingSavesLives
