    Claims that E-Cigs are a Gateway to Cocaine is Junk Science

    Professor Brad Rodu : Tobacco Truth: NEJM Irresponsibly Damns E-Cigarettes as Gateway to Cocaine, Based on Mouse Nicotine Studies

    The NEJM presents the Kandels’ laboratory data on how nicotine and cocaine affect the mouse brain at the cellular and molecular level. Their experiments involved force-feeding nicotine to and injecting cocaine into mice. Post-mortem studies on the rodent brains led the authors to conclude that nicotine/tobacco causes cocaine use.
    Dr Carl Phillips : CASAA response to new study that claims ecigs are a gateway to cocaine | Anti-THR Lies and related topics

    A study released today by the New England Journal of Medicine is claimed by the authors and the journal to suggest that e-cigarette use could cause cocaine use. In reality, the study shows no such thing, and the authors and journal are just trying to score political points based on an unimportant technical study of mice with no real-world implications. The study results only suggest that mice dosed with nicotine one day react differently, biologically, to cocaine the next day compared to those who are not. They do not suggest that nicotine use will cause people to seek out or use cocaine.
    It's junk science, obviously politically driven as evident by the fact that e-cigs are being specifically singled out.
