Please join Gregory Conley, the President of the American Vaping Association, as the Truth About Vaping Tour comes to Montana and western South Dakota.
Over 250,000 adults in Montana and South Dakota smoke cigarettes. Many of these people want to quit, but have been unable to do so even with pharmaceutical aides or other traditional methods. For those adults who can’t or won’t quit, what is the solution?
A growing number of medical and public health organizations are advocating a harm reduction approach that urges smokers to quit smoking by switching to vaping products. Last year, the Royal College of Physicians — an international organization representing over 32,000 doctors — released a landmark report concluding that smokers who switch to vaping products avoid “almost all of the harms from smoking.” And in July, the BMJ journal reported that an increase in vaping in the U.S. was tied to higher quit rates.
Yet even with evidence growing, polls show that a growing number of Americans think that vaping is just as bad, if not worse, than smoking. And many public health groups are pushing for the FDA to regulating vaping products far harsher than they do traditional cigarettes.
Join us to get the facts about vaping and other reduced risk products, as well as learn what can be done to keep vaping products legal.
