• The vaping industry compliance deficit

    This week Health Canada released the results of its inspections of the instagram accounts of Canadian vaping suppliers. Just over half (53%) of the 304 suppliers failed inspection.

    The industry fared somewhat better on this test than they did on the previous round of inspections of their retail stores in the summer and fall of 2019. On those occasions, fewer than 1 in 5 specialty vaping stores passed

It's a Fair Cop!

We found vaping stores were not compliant with health laws -- and so did a report commissioned by the industry!

In August we wrongly identified FlavourArt as having sold vaping products with nicotine in Canada before 2018. We apologize to FlavourArt for the error, and have amended our report on the compliance of that company and other vaping industry leaders.

Good news: @liberal_party will force this harmful industry to pick up the tab for some regulatory costs.
Bad news: @liberal_party is not promising to increase funding for tobacco control
Worse news: @liberal_party has no plan to end the sale of combustible cigarettes. https://t.co/NXRwDfodU6

These documents were invaluable to understanding the banality of evil that drives tobacco sales. The enlightened disclosure of the documents helped spur Canadian lawsuits and inform plaintiffs .... (although we still wait for those suits to yield any health benefit..). https://t.co/Kl4GcXhkkz

Our just-released review of compliance of industry leaders (eg directors of trade organizations) found widespread non-compliance amongst specialty vaping suppliers.
