Welcome to the FORCES site!


Forces was founded before the majority of households had personal computers. Now we have smart phones, ipads and high speed Internet service to the majority of people in the United States and Europe. We have 24/7 - news cycles, Facebook, Twitter and Google, we have truly entered the information age. Thus we have decided to de-emphasize our focus on serving as a news feed while still working to bring about a new age of peaceful coexistence of smokers and nonsmokers.

There are now a good number of high quality and dependable newsletters, email lists, and blogs that produce new, reliable, and thought-provoking material on daily and weekly bases. Our News Page will largely serve to direct FORCES visitors to those resources while still featuring contributions from our own core group of writers. You can also continue to join us on Forces Tavern or Facebook.

FORCES will be concentrating our efforts to the Free Choice 2020s: a decade in which ventilation, air filtration and tolerance will largely take the place of today's more unreasonable prohibitionsLoadedmovies.com It's now 2013, and over the next seven years we will lay the groundwork for that new decade and help move the world to a place where the rights of all people, smokers and nonsmokers alike, are considered and respected.

We still need your help and support to continue to keep the website open to all, with updates on the latest anti-smoking research. The anti-smoking establishment has a great deal of money to continue to spread their misinformation campaign and while all of us are volunteers we still need your donations. Please be generous and donate now, your donations are music downloader tax deductible.

New Regulations on E-cigarettes being in the fall.
8th July 2016
As of September, new laws surrounding the sale, promotion and use of e-cigarettes will come into effect. While local retailers and producers say the restrictions are needed, they are tired of “vapes” being treated like tobacco.

The government’s announcement says the Tobacco and Vapour Products Control Act, “is designed to protect youth from the unknown effects of e-cigarette vapour and from becoming addicted to nicotine, which is why it will treat e-cigarette use exactly the same as tobacco, with the same bans and restrictions.”

Indiana
1st July 2016
Starting today, it could become much more difficult to vape in Indiana.

A new state law taking effect July 1 requires all e-cigarette manufacturers and retailers to have a state permit to do business. Getting that permit is proving to be very difficult, nearly impossible in many cases, and the new regulations set security guidelines that effectively give a single private company the ability to decide which products will be available in the Hoosier State.
