It will be fits and starts as this takes off but the reason for being is to present tobacco, nicotine and smoking related news items as they appear and comment on these items. Part of this is certainly for entertainment purposes as much of this sort of news is both ridiculous and misleading.
However, this is also intended to get the discussion going about nicotine related issues. We expect to venture into everything from the current explosion in electronic cigarettes to the peculiarities of the anti-smoking movement to the attacks on smokers and our own particular research focus which is the availability of various healthier means of obtaining nicotine other than smoking.
We will careen from indignation to folly, from seriousness to frivolity, from fact to opinion but we will try to keep straight which is which. Join us and comment, please.
