    The new year is a common date for governments to peg for implementing regulations or new rules. This year is no exception, with new tobacco control provisions kicking in this week. Other regular New Year's changes will be price increases set by tobacco companies. This post reviews these events -- with related and updated fact sheets linked at the end.

Three years ago this week, the big news was the NASEM report on e-cigarettes. Right now, that review looks very dated, and the conclusions less and less reliable. ( @govcanhealth - maybe time to update your webpage?) https://t.co/3pRVlicGEL DocsVsTobacco photo

It's #WeedlessWednesday. Last year Dr. Theresa Tam and her provincial colleagues set out a roadmap to reduce youth vaping. Progress has been made! ... but key measures are yet to be put in place.
