Recently I wrote an article for The Oklahoma Constitution on the politics and money behind the e-cigarette bans in our state.
Many credible health experts have also noted a curious imbalance regarding the claims made by some public health advocates about
e-cigarette health dangers. . . . Judging from the reaction to the sudden spate of prohibitions on vaping in our state, the public t buying the hype either. What most people want to know is, why are they being banned? Who is being hurt by the use of an electronic cigarette? . . . This innovative technology is not a threat to public health but is a grave threat to the entire multi-billion tobacco industry as it exists today.
. . .You’ll find TSET grant funding everything from OETA to bike racks, but let’s look at the “Communities of Excellence in Tobacco Control” incentive grants that are driving the vapor bans.
You can read the article ‘Clearing the Air on the Oklahoma E-cigarette War’ in its entirety at The Oklahoma Constitution.
Also, you may want to see this rebuttal to the OK. State Dept. of Health’s alarmist e-cigarette advisory. FINAL OSDH rebuttal 2 9 2014
And if you haven’t done it yet, subscribe to The Oklahoma Constitution!

This family choose to move to the state of Oklahoma because of the respect for parental rights our state recognizes and this mom does not take Sen. Wilson’s anti-home education bill lightly.
Please share this message and video so that others can see that they are not alone in their outrage.
If you are a home educating parent, I urge you to watch the following video and then take action!
If you are not a a home educating parent, you may think it has nothing to do with you, but you’d be dangerously mistaken. I urge you to watch it anyway and consider the deeper message – control is unacceptable in a society that boasts of it’s freedom as ours gratefully does! Remember that success in unjust restriction in one area, will inevitably lead to an intrusion in other areas of our lives. Eventually this will affect you!
Please watch and pass it on!
