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 prohibitions. 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 tax deductible.

White House Finalizing Strict E-Cig ‘Deeming’ Rule
19th January 2016
The White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is currently reviewing new federal regulations requiring all e-cigarette products sold after February 15, 2007, to apply for federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval, regardless of whether they are new products or previously created.

The proposed FDA “deeming rule” would also extend the agency’s tobacco regulatory authority to consumer products without tobacco, such as e-cigarettes.

Nathan Makla, state government relations manager for The Heartland Institute, which publishes Budget & Tax News, says laws and regulatory agencies should acknowledge the big differences between e-cigarettes and tobacco cigarettes, treating them as the significantly different products they are.

“E-cigarettes simulate the physical and psychological act of smoking while eliminating most of the harmful chemicals found in conventional cigarettes,” Makla said. “Vaping is not the same as smoking tobacco products. E-cigarettes and other vaping devices have far fewer negative consequences for vapers and bystanders, and they should not be treated the same.”

We have a President who is hooked on Nicotine gum, he should be more sympathetic towards smokers and fully support e-cigarettes! America is going backward not forward like the Brits who are encouraging people to give up their smokes for e-cigs.

We fully support e-cigarettes and I am vaping one now!
