Forbidden Fruit | Anti-Vaping Ads Create Youth ‘Epidemic’ | RegWatch (Live)

Most vapers know it to be true because they saw it: public health propaganda—intended to combat the so-called ‘epidemic’ of teen vaping—actually fuelled youth interest instead. There’s a clear and obvious connection, and now we have the proof!

In a bombshell new report by Michelle Minton, Senior Fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute titled “Perverse Psychology: How Anti-Vaping Campaigners Created the Youth Vaping Epidemic,” Minton argues it was not the vaping industry that “reignited youth interest in vaping—it was anti-vaping advocacy.”

Anti-vaping advertising campaigns made vaping look attractive and the “don’t vape” message triggered curiosity and rebellion.

In this special edition of RegWatch get an exclusive ‘first look’ at Minton’s new report and hear Michelle describe her findings in detail—it’s going to be a good one!

  1. Michelle Minton, Brent Stafford. Thankyou so much for this praise-worthy report. I enjoyed it all for the content and quality.
    There are so many despicable government and business players pushing for the early deaths of nicotine users, it is mind boggling, and truly sad, that so much evil resides in those we trust to lead us.
