Survey SAYS - KEEP FLAVOR IN VAPE!
The FDA has issued a call for comments on the regulation of flavored e-liquids. According to the FDA, this latest assault on vapers demonstrates the agency’s intention to restrict supposedly “youth-appealing” flavors.
FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb stated, “We must [...] consider how best to address flavors in non-combustible products like e-cigarettes – given both their clear appeal to youth but also the potential role certain flavors may play in helping some adult smokers transition to potentially less harmful tobacco products.”
“I’ve talked to ex-smokers, who’ve told me that they quit cigarettes altogether and that they now vape,” he added. “And they’ve also told me it was the flavors that helped them make that transition off combustible cigarettes." Gottleib said.
Gottleib went one to state that anecdotes aren’t the same as data and the FDA is specifically seeking is data on this issue.

Doctor Calls for Medical CBD Trials on Children
For years, children diagnosed with conditions like autism and ADHD were prescribed prescribed drugs like anti-psychotics to control aggression. Now Dr. Daryl Efron, from the Murdoch Children's Research Institute in Melbourne, is calling for trials of medical CBD for children with behavioural disorders.
"A lot of these kids are given psychiatric-type medications and they can be very helpful, but they do carry quite a higher risk of serious side effects," Dr. Efron said.
He said parents all over the world had been asking for medical canabidiol (CBD) to be prescribed for their children suffering from behavioral disorders.
"I think it is an option definitely worth pursuing," Dr Efron said.
CBD is a natural, non-psychoactive compound and is reputed to help a multiple of health issues such as pain, inflammation, anxiety, insomnia, low appetite, epilepsy, Alzheimer's, and (as some studies have shown) even helps the body fight cancer.

Victory in Seminole!
According to an article published in TBN Weekly, the City Council of Seminole, FL was proposing a ban on Kratom within the city. Proponents of the ban were erroneously lumping Kratom in with dangerous, synthetic street drugs like Bath Salts and Spice. Had the City Council's plan proceeded, the vote to ban Kratom would have taken place on March 27th.
That's when The People spoke up and made their voices heard.
Gary Wilder, local businessman and the owner of Lizard Juice, was one such person at the meeting. Wilder added his voice to the many in attendance who spoke up regarding the positive impact Kratom has had on their lives.
“I’ve never had a drink, never done drugs. I don’t even eat red meat,” he said. “This natural product changed my life. … These stories that I hear from people – I hear these every day by the hundreds in the stores, and I’m the most anti-drug person that you could meet in your life.”
He added, “This is the greatest exit from opioids that nature’s ever given us. This is an incredible product.”
Others also added their voices to Wilder's speaking about how Kratom has saved them from pain, opioid addiction, and alcoholism. In the end, a major victory was scored for the people. The bill to ban Kratom in the City of Seminole has been abandoned.
Kratom (Mitragyna speciose) is a tropical evergreen tree indigenous to Indochina. It is a member of the coffee family and it has been used in traditional medicine at least since the 1800s. Kratom has been celebrated for its pain-relieving, invigorating, and euphoric properties by many cultures and has recently come to the United States as a food supplement.
