Scott Gottlieb made his first speech to the FDA staff this morning, and the news is fantastic for the vape industry. Did he take a trip to the UK and get woke?
Here's a snippet of his promising statements:
"...there’s probably no single intervention, or product we’re likely to create in the near future that can have as profound an impact on reducing illness and death from disease as our ability to increase the rate of decline in smoking...we need to have the science base to explore the potential to move current smokers – unable or unwilling to quit – to less harmful products, if they can’t quit altogether."
He went on to mention children, but not in the way we are used to hearing about them!
"At all times, we must protect kids from the dangers of tobacco use." (Yeah, we agree)
Sounds like he's got his ear on the pavement.
