My journey into vaping

I hate deadlines – A Consultation on Electronic Cigarettes and Strengthening Tobacco Control in Scotland

Leave a comment

Today is the deadline for submission to this consultation. Please respond to it. If we don’t use our legitimate chances to be heard, then we have fewer rights to complain if legislation is poorly thought out. Those who oppose THR will be using this to shout very loudly indeed. The points we need to rebut are as simple as ever because they will be using the same tired old arguments.

  • We are arguing for harm reduction through use of a safer alternative. We do not claim that it is 100% safe.
  • The gateway leads out if it exists at all.
  • Young people are not taking it up.
  • It normalises the act of not smoking lit tobacco.
  • We are not a part of a tobacco industry plot
  • No vaping product has ever been marketed at children.
  • Nicotine is not as addictive as smoking lit tobacco.
  • We are not shills.

Yes it’s a faff and a pain, and I’m late telling you about it. But please submit something and note that you don’t have to live in Scotland to respond. Thank you.

A Mad middle aged woman who lives in the middle of nowhere, Scotland with a parrot, two Jack Russells, some koi, and a tank full of tropical fish. I have M.E. but that's really not important. I draw, paint, write, game, garden, blog and enjoy a good vape. I have three lovely grown up offspring, and 2 ex-husbands. I do genuinely have the legal title of 'Lady Rebecca Jane [SURNAME]', and am proud to support the restoration project which bestowed that title on me. I will happily explain where to find more information on this if you contact me.
