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 on bringing true Free Choice to the second quarter of our 21st Century, a period where we'll likely see a full acceptance of ventilation, air filtration and tolerance largely taking the place of today's more unreasonable prohibitions. It's now 2017, and over the next eight years we will lay the groundwork for that new generation and help move the world to a place where the rights of all people, smokers, nonsmokers, vapers and nonvapers 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 tax deductible.

Today, Tuesday, October 27th, longtime vaping opponent the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids (CTFK) has organized a call-in action to urge President Obama to put pressure on the FDA to finalize their Tobacco Deeming Regulations. What CTFK and others are failing to mention is that if the deeming regulations are enacted as written, 99.9% of the vapor products currently on the market will be gone within two to four years. Make no mistake, the current proposed regulations will have a devastating impact on consumers and businesses alike; not to mention the obvious damage to public health.', `date`='2015-10-27 17:33:00', `rssid`=10

Despite the intensity and determination he displayed in his role as a business leader, General Johnson had a warmth and compassion for those less privileged than he. He was always keenly aware of the need to help others, and during his lifetime, he helped many quietly and without fanfare.
Robert Wood Johnson Sr. didn\'t cause the elimination of thousands of businesses & hundreds of thousands of jobs (anti-free market policies such as promoting smoking bans on PRIVATE businesses) unlike the foundation that now bears his name ....Imagine the compassion he would have had for those he put out of business and out on the streets as RWJF does so regularly and cavalierly today.', `date`='2012-06-07 23:33:00', `rssid`=11
