CASAA’s reply to Tobacco-Free UK Flyer.

A while back, we brought to your attention a flyer written by Tobacco-Free UK (University of Kentucky) that was posted throughout campus common areas during the 1st week of school.  That article with a copy of the poster can be found here.

The Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association (CASAA) caught wind of it, and countered with their own poster, refuting point by point, the lies and half truths proffered by Tobacco Free UK.

Unlike the the TFUK poster which only offers one reference (an opinion paper written by the author of the poster), the CASAA poster offers eleven citations to actual data to back their claims.  There really isn’t much to say about it, because the poster speaks for itself.  Kudos to CASAA for not letting this one slide.

See and download a copy of the poster at http://casaa.org/TFUK.html.  If you live near, or go to school at Kentucky, feel free to post this over the top of the originals!

          I go to BCTC which is pretty much part of UK so I’ll be sure to print some of these out and post them up.

            I used to live in Lexington and now I live in Harrodsburg, KY. I just wish I still lived in Lexington to post these flyers.

              Brilliant and well documented response flyer! See, this is the kind of information RESPONSIBLE people give to the public!

              TFUK is TFUK(ed)

                I’ve never been bothered by anyone while vaping on the UK campus.

                Kentucky is a Republican state, so we don’t have to deal with as many of the anti-smoking and anti-ecig zealots.

                  I’ve heard reports of them hassling people on campus for vaping, just not nearly as much as smoking.

                      I like to stand around those types of signs vaping up a storm

                                You made some really good points there. I checked on the web for more info about the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this web site.

                                    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of
                                    your blog? 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?

                                            I’ve been browsing online more tan tjree hours today, yet
                                            I never found any interesting article like
                                            yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my
                                            view, if all site owners and bloggers made good contenbt as you did, the internet will be mucdh more useful than ever before.
