Government’s Counterproductive War Against Smoking, by Lee Friday, at mises.org. Excerpt from the article: “The efficacy of RIP (reduced ignition propensity) regulations on materials used to produce cigarettes is very much in doubt, with evidence suggesting they may even be counterproductive. Furthermore, aside from smoking-related-fires, the manner in which RIP cigarettes are manufactured and smoked may actually pose greater risks to the health of smokers as compared to non-RIP cigarettes.”

“Vaping products are a much healthier alternative for smokers and far less likely to be the source of unintended fires, as compared to RIP and non-RIP cigarettes. However, Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Canaca’s Minister of Health, said, “We’re .. placing restrictions on the promotion of vaping products while allowing adults to legally access them as a less harmful alternative to cigarettes …” So, having acknowledged that cigarettes are more harmful to our health than vaping, the government somehow feels it is prudent to prevent vendors of vaping products from persuading cigarette smokers to kick the habit.”

“Politicians and bureaucrats appear to be more dangerous to our health than smoking.
