    Video: Filter Editor Denounces War on Nicotine to Regulator Watch

    Helen Redmond, Filter‘s senior editor, made plenty of waves with her recent piece, “The War on Nicotine Pits Prejudice Against Public Health,” which called out the public-health establishment’s attacks on tobacco harm reduction.

    In the video above, the veteran harm reduction campaigner and journalist is interviewed by Brent Stafford of Regulator Watch. Subjects covered include her original piece, her defense of Juul, and the parallels between the war on nicotine and the wider War on Drugs.

    Redmond’s response to recent and threatened FDA crackdowns on vaping? “Good luck! It’s not going to work.”
