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.

Kalifornia raising tax by $2.00 a pack
18th May 2016
On the November 8th election California will have a proposition to raise a pack of cigarettes by $2.00 a pack.  The tax increase would also effect vapors.



OMG Stanton Glantz!
18th May 2016
"There is no question that a puff on an e-cigarette is less dangerous than a puff on a conventional cigarette," said Stanton Glantz, a professor of medicine and the director of the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education at the University of California, San Francisco. (Yes, he actually said that.)

However, this doesn't mean the devices always represent a safer step down from cigarettes. In fact, one of the most dangerous things about e-cigarettes is that they may keep people smoking conventional cigarettes longer, rather than encourage them to attempt to quit, he said".

He has nothing to back up his statement but his own hot air but when has that ever stopped him?

By the way he has a PhD, he is not a MD, nor a Epidemologist. He usually passes himself as a MD.

Whine, whine, whine!
17th May 2016
When will the ASH and all the other health nannies get the message "people do not like to be told what to do by the government".   ASH is whinning that the Tobacco Companies are still making profits. Boohoo!

From the Weekly Standard
10th May 2016
We couldn't say it any better so please read the article. 

FDA has literally killed the e-cigarette market, so stock up now.

From the American Interprise Institute on FDA ban
10th May 2016
"If you care about vaping’s implications for public health, it is the worst of times and also the best of times– it just depends which side of the Atlantic you live on".

America is on the wrong side of the pond.
