It's about the fact that at the same time he's bemoaning nicotine addiction, JUUL is being sold, is advertised, and has become wildly popular, teen addiction is rising, and now certain snuff is designated as VLN. And while the FDA continues to approve stuff like Dsuvia, (which is 10x stronger than fentanyl,) VLN ciggies languish, awaiting approval. There's no the downside to smoking VLN products vs regular ciggies, there aren't any increased health risks. It's just bad for the tobacco companies' revenues, period. The problem is, Gottlieb is talking out of both sides of his mouth. He's a crusader against nicotine at the same time he's an enabler of BT's growing profits from it.
