protect your family e-cigs
The California Department of Public Health's new "Protect Your Family from E-Cigarettes" campaign is a rag-tag collection of lies covering a lot of ground, like some prohibitionist Gish gallop replete with straw men, half truths and outright demonstrable falsehoods, masquerading as “the Facts You Need to Know.” Read More
