In a press release today, The Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association (CASAA) has gone on the offensive against Ellen Hahn, PhD. and the Kentucky Center for Smoke-Free Policy (KCSP).

For those who may not know, Hahn, who is the director of KCSP, sent a letter on official University of Kentucky letterhead to a local hotel in Lexington, Kentucky in an attempt to subvert a local vape meet scheduled for August 4th, 2012 at that hotel.  The letter seemed designed to bully the hotel into breaking a legal contract with the event organizers by using junk science and misleading “facts” about electronic cigarettes.  It created added hardship for the event organizers because the hotel management was afraid of the repercussions that would ensue if they allowed the event.

In the end, the event organizers and the hotel came up with an amended contract that was less than desirable for the organizers and attendees, but still allowed vaping in the meeting room proper.  Unfortunately, out of town patrons were forced to book smoking rooms, and as such, had to be subjected to what Hahn calls 3rd hand smoke (the residue left on carpets, furniture, drapes, and walls left by cigarettes).  In a sense, these non-smokers were by Hahn’s definition, put in harm’s way by her very actions.

CASAA was quick to offer assistance to the local group, and was instrumental in helping restore as much of the original contract as possible, however, the damage was still palpable.  In an effort to combat future efforts from anti-ecig groups from doing the same, CASAA wrote a letter to the University of Kentucky president Dr. Eli Capilouto, and Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway registering a formal complaint against Ellen Hahn.  The full text of CASAA’s letter can be found here.

Lastly, CASAA launched a new blog called the Anti-THR Lie of the day, spelling out the tactics and twisting of truth that Anti-THR advocates like Hahn use to subvert the use of these devices.

CASAA is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization, funded entirely by donations, which educates the public on the benefits of switching from cigarettes to smoke-free tobacco and nicotine products.  More information can be found on CASAA’s website at http://CASAA.org.

    I do not even know the way I ended up here, however I assumed this
    put up was great. I don’t recognize who you’re but certainly you’re
    going to a well-known blogger in the event you aren’t already.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing
    the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot
    of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could
    space it out better?
