June, national candy monthis described by the National Confectioners Association as “a time to celebrate the authentic, fun confections that confectionery companies have been producing for over 100 years.”

What many people may not know is that candies have been used for years to help people quit smoking.

Today, millions of Americans use flavors that mimic these sweet treats to stay smoke-free. Candies and candy flavors are not new to efforts to help people quit smoking. A quick Google search provides links to many health groups recommending gum and Candy to ward off the urge to smoke.

For example, while PEZ Candy is usually associated with plastic tubes and cartoon characters, the original candy has a habit of helping people quit smoking. In fact, the candy’s maker, Austrian Eduard Haas III, invented PEZ candies in the 1920s as a alternative to smoke. This well-known candy has been sold in the United States since 1952.

Over the years many, including health groups, have promoted the idea of ​​replacing cigarettes with candy. In 1997, a tobacco company executive made the outlandish claim that cigarettes were no more addictive than gummy bears.

The Health Partnership Project and the California Medical Association Foundation took advantage of this claim and launched the Bear for butts program, which took place in California. A free bag of gummy bears, quitting tips and advice on avoiding second-hand smoke were given to everyone who returned their cigarettes.

A well-known pharmaceutical company uses fruit and candy flavors in its nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) products and at one time used the publicity slogan “Success has never been so sweet.” TRNs are available in several options, including gum and pellets.

Over the past few decades, new products have emerged that have essentially snuffed out smoking rates in the United States. E-cigarettes are 95% safer than smoking and quit smoking about twice as fast efficiency from NRT.

Coincidentally, flavored vaping products are preferred by adults, with the most popular flavors being fruits and sweets. Adults who vaped flavored e-cigarettes were also more likely to quit than those who did not.

Despite the misguided notion that “flavors hook kids”, the number one reason young people give for experimenting with vapor products is curiosityfollowed by family or friends using them, then the flavors. Non-smoking teenagers who had never tried electronic cigarettes had the the lowest interest in flavored vaping products. States like New Jersey have taken drastic measures to address youth usage issues and have banned the sale of all vape products that are not flavored with tobacco. Meanwhile, adults in New Jersey love fruit and candy flavors, with one of the state’s most popular candy brands being star burst.

The public health line blurs with candy, like a dentist invented the Daddy’s beard (also known as fairy floss) in 1879. This delicacy was enjoyed by people around the world and many adults developed the habit of including the flavor in other consumer products, including cotton candy flavored vodka. Consumers even indulge in bacon– cotton candy wrapped and flavored with cotton candy cheese macaroni.

Former U.S. Senator George Murphy, R-California, kept candy in his office to give to his colleagues, a tradition he started about 100 years after the birth of conversation hearts. Today, members of Congress take turns storing what has become known as Office Candy.

It’s rather odd that lawmakers partake in candy fun while trying to ban the fruit and candy flavored products that have helped thousands of their constituents quit smoking. Not only have these products contributed to to improve public health, but they also generated tax dollars and provided jobs for voters.

This National Candy Month, it’s time to recognize the role candy has played and continues to play in quitting smoking.

Glastonbury: A Glimpse of the Riot Rehab Bus

Glastonbury fans wishing to quit smoking were offered the help of a unique Riot Rehab bus as it arrived at the iconic music festival.

The festival’s somewhat unlikely hookup saw the e-cigarette producer pull out Riot Labs, driving his double-decker ‘tour bus’ right into the thick of the action.

The festival has become the largest outdoor green space festival in the world, attracting over 200,000 festival-goers looking to let off steam and enjoy the stars of global music.

Visitors could get their hands on Riot Labs products, including a range of e-liquids and their latest disposable e-cigarette – Riot Bar – and talk to Riot Labs-trained quit smoking professionals about the plan. quitting smoking in 4 steps from RIOT.

Ben Johnson, Founder and CEO of Riot Labs, said, “The days of boring quit smoking campaigns are over. We wanted to create the Riot Rehab Bus and send it right into the action, into festivals, where smokers are surrounded by the sort of triggers that get you fired up.

“The Riot Rehab bus has had a huge reaction as the festivals we’ve parked at so far this summer, and that doesn’t get much bigger than arriving in Glastonbury this weekend where we expect to help thousands of people to start their journey to quit smoking.”

Just last week the government published plans to make the UK smoke-free by 2030, and e-cigarettes have received backing from the NHS as an important tool to help people quit smoking. to smoke.

The Riot Rehab Bus has already hit the road on its summer festival circuit – as a vital part of helping to make the UK smoke-free.

The Riot Rehab Bus has appeared at Cambridge Club, Strawberries & Creem – and after signing at Glasto next week, it will park at Henley Regatta.

And to help those struggling, Riot Lab came up with this acronym with advice to follow:

1. “R” – Tear up the rulebook

Do not be afraid and forget everything you have ever heard about quitting smoking. Go at your own pace and on your own terms.

2. “I” – Identify your triggers.

What makes you want to smoke a cigarette? Be brave and face your triggers. If you can cross them without smoking, you can cross anything

3. “O” – Smoke only if you need to.

Reduce your cigarette consumption and use your Riot Bar whenever you cannot smoke. Without you realizing it, your cigarette smoking will dwindle to next to nothing – or better yet, stop altogether.

4. “T” – The rest is easy.

Once you’ve managed to deal with your triggers without smoking and cut back on your cigarette intake, you’ll find the rest is easy. It’s not over at all, but the worst is over and you’re well on your way to quitting smoking. Go celebrate, treat yourself, try something new, or do something you’ve never done before.

To mark Riot Labs’ appearance at Glasto, the producer is also offering 30% off their heroic disposable e-cigarette – Riot Bar. You can use the discount code GLASTO on rioteliquid.com

Introduction

Altria Group Inc. (NYSE: MO) shares fell 9.2% on June 23 after the Wall Street Journal reported that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has banned all Juul Labs vaping products from the US market in a a widely anticipated move that one could say had already been discounted into MO shares.

MO paid $13 billion in 2018 for a one-third stake in Juul. Altria has already written everything except $1.7 billion of its initial investment in Juul. With a formal ban on vaping products, it was a blow to MO stocks.

The FDA has the authority to regulate nicotine as an addictive drug. As such, nicotine vaping products have had to file PMTA (Premarket Tobacco Product Approval) applications to keep their products on the market. The The FDA said that Juul’s apps had insufficient toxicological data on its e-liquid pods that contain consumable nicotine.

Juul said it would seek a reprieve from the FDA ban and consider appeals. The company’s products will apparently remain on the market during the appeal process.

Below is the lengthy process that MO faces when working through the FDA process.

Philip Morris International (NYSE:PM) and MO have generally been strong defensive plays during recessions. MO and PM pay high and generally sustainable dividend yields and can be considered in a well-balanced portfolio.

Story

PM was an operating company of MO until a spin-off in March 2008. This was widely seen as a way for PM to have more freedom from rules and standards than a US-based company could potentially have regarding potential litigation and legislative restrictions. MO also seemed to see the fallout as an easier way to pursue sales growth in emerging markets. PM’s operational headquarters are in Lausanne, Switzerland. To confuse things a bit, MO is the parent company of Philip Morris USA which is the producer of Marlboro cigarettes.

Philip Morris

PMI.com

Overview of prospects

Like MO, PM manufactures and sells cigarettes, other nicotine-containing products and smokeless vaping products as well as related electronic devices and accessories.

The pandemic has brought about many lifestyle changes and different kinds of stresses that have boosted tobacco sales. As a first in 20 years, cigarette sales increased in 2020 according to a report by the Federal Trade Commission. Its annual cigarette report shows that manufacturers sold 203.7 billion cigarettes in 2020, an increase of 0.4% from 202.9 billion in 2019. The report does not include e-cigarette sales.

By the way, marketing has grown from $7.62 billion in 2019 to $7.84 billion in 2020, with the bulk of rebate spending going to cigarette retailers and wholesalers.

Strict FDA regulations and plans to force nicotine cuts in cigarettes prompted MO and PM to develop smoke-free products. Apparently even The PM has decided to go smoke-free with their new products, as shown below.

Both companies are generally well positioned to perform well in a recession, especially if the future looks like the past. The U.S. tobacco market is expected to grow at a pace 3.4% CAGR to reach $102.70 billion by 2030.

Which of these stocks is a better choice now? Keep reading.

What is Juul’s value to Altria?

While MO’s stock price reaction seemed overdone, it was the result of Juul’s withdrawal of MO’s earnings and the possibility that the company had put the remaining Juul investment on its books.

MO owns more than 42% of the US cigarette market by volume and industry profits, which appear to be driven primarily by the Marlboro retail product. With or without Juul, MO seems well positioned to weather this storm. However, the increased regulatory pressures mentioned here will be a headwind for MO. Getting new acceptable e-vapor products could take years to develop.

MO stimulates the growth of its On! nicotine sachets, but this does not directly concern the e-vapor market. It is unclear whether these nicotine pouches convert large numbers of cigarette smokers to On!.

Comparison of dividend yield and other key indicators

Altria

MO stock is attractive at this price with a P/E of just over 25 and a dividend yield of 8.7%. The stock has fallen from a 52 week high at 57 and is now in the 42 price range. labor and products. Cigarettes, particularly Marlboro, remain MO’s core business and cash cow.

MO also has a 45% of capital to Kronos (CRON). The direction of federal legalization of marijuana in the United States could present major value creation and appreciation for MO shares.

Philip Morris International

PM stock has a P/E of just over 17 and a dividend yield of 5.04%. The stock declined from a 52-week high at 112 and is now in the 101 price range. PM stock was not as affected as MO.

The main advantage that PM has over MO is that it has global reach without the influence of the US government.

Altria performance against Philip Morris

Fidelity.com

Conclusion: Which is a better buy – MO or PM

Altria shares fell 9.2% after the FDA ban on Juul products and now have a dividend yield of 8.7% and a P/E of 25. While PM has a dividend yield of 5 % and a P/E of 17.

With the headwinds both companies are facing on inflation, we think both stocks could be under pressure.

However, both should continue to pay their dividends and weather the next inflationary and recessionary environments.

We believe investors have overreacted and driven MO price down into an oversold range and expect a technical gap to close down to the 47-50 price; however, it highly depends on the general direction of the stock market.

We don’t expect much appreciation by the PM.

To preserve capital, we are considering either selling a naked put on MO and PM or a defined risk play of a bullish 45-day put spread.

For example, one could buy MO here and hope for a car ride and that might not be a bad idea. However, 100 shares will cost you over $7,400 and you will get that juicy dividend. As an alternative, one could sell an August 40 put for $116 (at current prices) with a delta of 30 and a profit probability of 67%. If the stock stays above 40, you keep 100% of the premium you collected at expiration. On the other hand, if the stock goes below 40, the stock will most likely put you at 40, with a raise of $1.16 your basis is below 38 – creating a dividend yield of about 9%.

American smokers trying to quit have the choice of vapes, nicotine pouches and, a more recent introduction, heated tobacco sticks. Cigarette manufacturers are very dependent on the direction in which they turn.

Today, vaping is the preferred alternative to smoking in the United States. Reynolds American Proprietor British American Tobacco BTI -1.41%

expects it to stay that way, arguing on a recent earnings call that Americans won’t buy heated tobacco products in large numbers. BAT is asking the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for permission to launch its Glo heated tobacco sticks, but executives say it’s mainly to gain leverage with foreign regulators rather than because they’re optimistic about local demand.

Cigarette maker Lucky Strike has reason to talk about vaping. Its Vuse brand has overtaken Juul as the best e-cigarette in America, and heated tobacco is a much bigger business for BAT rival Philip Morris International.,

PM -0.33%

which sells Marlboro cigarettes outside the United States, PMI will soon have a US distribution network to deploy its pioneering IQOS heated tobacco devices, assuming it completes a proposed $16 billion acquisition of the sachet specialist. of Swedish Match nicotine.

Certain smokeless products may dominate different markets depending on consumer tastes and local laws. IQOS has been a big hit in Japan, where consumers have a record of openness to new innovations. It must also have helped PMI to ban e-cigarettes containing nicotine. The situation is reversed in the United States: vaping accounts for 7% of the overall nicotine market, according to BAT, compared to 1% for modern oral nicotine sachets like Zyn and less than 1% for heated tobacco.

SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS

Will heated tobacco sticks be popular with Americans trying to quit smoking? Join the conversation below.

Electronic cigarettes have been available in the United States for about ten years, which may partly explain their advance. IQOS only came out in 2019, so the heated tobacco category is less familiar to American consumers. Covid-19 and an intellectual property dispute with BAT also slowed the rollout of the brand.

But timing may not be everything. Nicotine levels in American combustible cigarettes are high and it is technically easier to replicate the hit with nicotine salts in e-cigarettes than in heated tobacco, although levels in IQOS are close to those of traditional smokes .

Vaping also enjoys favorable tax treatment in the United States. Federal excise duties on heated tobacco are the same as on cigarettes, while there are none on e-cigarettes. A smoker who usually pays around $8 for a pack of Marlboro cigarettes will pay the same to switch to IQOS heated tobacco sticks, but only $6 for BAT’s brand of e-cigarettes, Vuse Alto, according to UBS data.

IQOS heated tobacco devices have been very successful in Japan.

However, this gap may not last if Washington decides to change nicotine taxes to offset the impact of lower cigarette sales on its revenue. And in another way, IQOS has an advantage: the PMI brand is one of the few non-combustible products to have been cleared by the FDA to tell smokers that its use reduces their exposure to harmful chemicals. So far, no vaping brand has achieved this modified risk rating.

The US e-cigarette market is undergoing a major overhaul. All vaping brands have had to submit applications to regulators to stay on sale. If flavored e-cigarettes, such as menthol, are not approved, it could be more difficult to encourage some smokers to switch, which would limit the growth of the vaping category.

E-cigarettes are leading the pack in the United States today, but until regulations and taxes take hold, there’s still a long way to go for big tobaccos.

Arlington Smoke Shop in Green Valley (photo via Google)

(Updated at 5:35 p.m.) An Arlington jury found a store worker not guilty of shooting a burglar, in a case that received national media attention.

It all started with a robbery of the Arlington Smoke Shop, at 2428 Shirlington Road in the Green Valley neighborhood, shortly before 5 a.m. on March 29, 2020. Three masked suspects reportedly broke into the store and began stealing smoke. money and goods.

Store worker Hamzeh Abushariah was sleeping in a back room of the store at the time due to Covid issues in his building in DC. Prosecutors alleged that Abushariah grabbed a gun and shot one of the suspects, aged under 18, point-blank in the back.

Abushariah was arrested and charged with malicious wounding, reckless handling of a firearm and breach of a protective order. Two juvenile suspects, including the one who was shot and seriously injured, were later charged in connection with the burglary.

The charge of reckless handling of a firearm was dismissed in April, according to court records, a week after Abushariah was charged with contempt for misconduct in court. The protective order charge remains active, with a hearing scheduled next Tuesday.

But yesterday, after a trial in Arlington Circuit Court that began on Monday, a jury found Abushariah not guilty of malicious wounding, the most serious charge.

“I can’t even explain how happy I am,” Abushariah told ARLnow. “I am at home with my family. There’s nothing like being free, especially when you know you’re innocent.

Jowan Zuber, the store owner who has appeared several times on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight to defend Abushariah, said the verdict was vindication.

“I cracked when the verdict, the 12 jurors, fell [back] not guilty, self-defense,” Zuber said. “So they saw the Commonwealth had no evidence holding Hamzeh Abushariah for two years, no evidence, taking him away from his children and his livelihood while we fought.”

He said video released during the trial showed it was dark in the store when the break-in happened.

“So when he fired he didn’t know where he was aiming,” Zuber said. “[Prosecutors] really hurt that guy.

He said the verdict brought relief to Abushariah’s family after “two years of nightmares back and forth”.

“The suffering, the tears that my wife, my children, my family, my sisters, my parents, it is not given, it is not nothing. It’s something, it means a lot to me,” Abushariah said.

Abushariah was jailed for several months after the shooting, then released under house arrest for four months before being re-arrested, Zuber said. He has been in jail ever since, before being released around 6 p.m. Wednesday evening.

Zuber and Abushariah thanked the jury and said they had to mention defense attorney Robert Marshall’s work on the case. In a video posted on Facebook, Abushariah is reunited with his family on leaving prison as Zuber says it’s all thanks to Marshall.

“We believed in [Marshall] since day one, and he just went to show what is right and showed that we shouldn’t protect criminals and that you have the right to protect yourself when people come to hurt you or break in violently Zuber told ARLnow. “It’s very bad for Arlington because we’re here as citizens, we pay our taxes and we want to protect the good people, not the bad ones… The jury, the people, made this happen.”

Parisa Dehghani-Tafti, Commonwealth attorney for Arlington and Falls Church, gave a brief statement to ARLnow.

“As always, we respect the verdict and thank the jurors for their service,” the county’s chief prosecutor said.

In response to further questions from ARLnow, Tafti did not provide further details on the case and said of the charges against the two burglary suspects, “these were juvenile rulings, and therefore no public record”.

Newly free, Abushariah said it was nice to see her children and the green grass and to enjoy the good weather and good food.

“The little things matter so much when you’re free,” he said. “The smallest things in life matter.”

He said he wished the person he shot well.

“I hope his life gets better, he gets well, we both will,” he said.

BEAMSVILLE, Ont., June 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Khan Reviewan independent review of the UK’s tobacco policies in 2030 identified four key recommendations, which Dr Khan calls “must do”, for the country to reach its 2030 smoke-free target. vaping.

“The government needs to embrace vaping promotion as an effective tool to help people quit smoking. We know vapes aren’t a “quick fix” and aren’t completely risk-free, but the alternative is far worse.

Content of the article

“Well over 90% of UK vapers are current or ex-smoker adults, and the proportion of those who have completely quit smoking continues to rise. In England, vaping is relatively common among young current and former smokers, while older smokers are less likely to vape or have tried vaping.Given the effectiveness of vaping in smoking cessation, this suggests a missed opportunity to help smokers in their 30s and older to quit smoking,” Khan wrote.

“Many of the recommendations made by Dr. Khan apply to Canada and our efforts to achieve a smoke-free society by 2035. Currently, only a fraction of Canadians know that vaping is significantly less harmful than smoking. To achieve widespread adoption by adult smokers, government must provide accurate and consistent information about vaping, and regulation must ensure that vaping products remain more appealing than smoking,” said Darryl Tempest, Government Relations Advisor to the CVA Board of Directors.

The federal budget proposed an excise tax on vaping liquids that, if implemented at the current rate, will predictably result in some vapers returning to smoking and an increase in illicit sales. Interestingly, as part of Dr Khan’s recommendations, he states that the UK government should “reduce VAT on vaping devices in line with other nicotine products. Most people vape to quit smoking and to help them stay smoke free. This will give people an extra incentive to change. »

Tobacco use continues to afflict the most disadvantaged in society, with significantly higher smoking rates among minority groups, people with mental disorders and people living in poverty. Canada should take note of Dr. Khan’s recommendations and do more to reduce smoking prevalence and inequalities in tobacco use.

Firms say the drivers of profit warnings are deteriorating purchasing power, continued supply chain disruptions and rising inflation.

However, Haypp Group sees reason for optimism, as it has successfully invested in a new low and mid price segment.

“We don’t see the decline that the rest of the e-commerce industry is talking about. During the pandemic, we understood that it would come a while later,” says Markus LindbladHead of External Affairs at Haypp Groupat Sun.

Haypp GroupExperience shows that consumers seek out lower priced options during times of low purchasing power rather than stop shopping. And thanks to the drive at low cost, Haypp Group expects an increase in volumes and number of customers this year compared to last year.

“What e-commerce typically lacks is the historical experience of how a marketplace operates. Many companies are led by young founders and have grown from one to a hundred inexperienced employees, thinking that growth will be 50 100% a year forever – without listening to what consumers want,” Lindblad told Di.

Inflation should not affect Haypp Group to a significant extent either, because the cost of production for manufacturers is only a small part of the final price that goes to the customer. This means less need for manufacturers to raise their prices towards Haypp Group as a retailer.

Haypp Groupthe next report of will be published on August 12 and cover from April to June 2022.

OTTAWA, Ontario, June 10, 2022

Proposed measures aim to strengthen regulations on packaging and labeling of tobacco products

OTTAWA (ON), June 10, 2022 /CNW/ – Despite decades of effort, tobacco use continues to be the leading preventable cause of illness and premature death in Canada. Canada, killing an estimated 48,000 Canadians each year. Although new and provocative when introduced more than a decade ago, current warnings on tobacco products have become outdated for the 13% of the population in Canada who smoke and see them regularly.

Recognizing that more needs to be done to protect the health of people in Canada and to ensure that people remain informed about the health risks associated with tobacco use, the Government of Canada proposes to update health-related messages and images printed on packages of cigarettes and other tobacco products.

Today, the Honorable Carolyn Bennett, Minister of Mental Health and Addictions and Associate Minister of Health, announced the launch of a 75-day public comment period beginning on June 11 solicit feedback from people in Canada that will inform the development of proposed new tobacco labeling regulations.

A key feature of the proposed regulations is the introduction of written health warnings printed on individual cigarettes, filtered cigars and cigarette tubes.

This new packaging would help ensure that health-related messages reach people who often access cigarettes one at a time in social situations, especially youth and young adults. Labeling the wrappers of cigarettes and other tobacco products would make it nearly impossible to avoid health warnings altogether. If implemented, Canada would be the first country in the world to introduce such a requirement.

The proposed regulations would also build on existing requirements by updating current health-related messages, extending message requirements to all tobacco product packaging, and implementing periodic rotation of messages, among other measures. These messages would include an expanded list of health hazards and adverse health effects to be featured on health warnings and health information messages for tobacco products, including stomach cancer, colorectal cancer, diabetes, peripheral vascular disease and cervical cancer.

In addition, the proposed regulations would support from Canada Anti-tobacco strategy preventing long-term tobacco dependence, reducing tobacco-related death and disease, and reducing burden from Canada the health system and society.

The draft regulation is in the Canada Gazette, Part I. To participate in the consultation, interested parties may submit comments by email to pregs@hc-sc.gc.ca until August 25e. Comments from the consultation will inform the development of the final regulations.

Quotation

“Reducing the devastating harms of tobacco use remains a top priority for health and health care in Canada. To better inform Canadians about the effects of smoking on their health and that of those around them, our government is proposing to strengthen regulations that would introduce new warnings about the health risks and negative health effects of tobacco products. tobacco. If implemented, they would prevent the avoidable, as they would better communicate the health risks of smoking to millions of people across the country every day, helping more Canadians live healthier, happier lives. and without tobacco. »

President and CEO, University of Ottawa Heart Institute

“The proposed regulations are an essential and effective measure to reduce tobacco use and are internationally revolutionary in several respects, including with certain provisions setting global precedents. Canada already has the best tobacco plain packaging regulations in the world. With the proposed settlement, Canada would also have the best overall tobacco health warning system in the world, including improved messages on the outside of the package, inside-pack messages that are unique in the world, and health messages on the cigarette itself, a world first. »

Rob Cunningham
Senior Policy Analyst, Canadian Cancer Society

“Heart & Stroke applauds the federal government’s proposal to strengthen health warnings on tobacco packaging, including the bold step of adding health warnings to the cigarettes themselves. Messages that clearly and directly highlight the dangers associated with these products will reduce their appeal to young people and support smokers in their efforts to quit.

Doug Roth
CEO, Heart & Stroke

“We were extremely pleased to see Minister Bennett’s announcement on measures to strengthen the labeling of tobacco products. Today there was a proposal to have warnings directly on cigarettes, which is a bold and hard-hitting strategy, which will continue from Canada tends to be a leader in tobacco control. Thus, the message on the danger of these products for the lung health of Canadians will not go unnoticed. »

With over a billion warnings circulating in Canada each year, they go a long way and contribute massively to public awareness efforts on the risks of smoking, in addition to being free. »

Flory Doucas
Co-director and spokesperson for the Quebec Coalition for Tobacco Control
