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 on bringing true Free Choice to the second quarter of our 21st Century, a period where we'll likely see a full acceptance of ventilation, air filtration and tolerance largely taking the place of today's more unreasonable prohibitions. It's now 2017, and over the next eight years we will lay the groundwork for that new generation and help move the world to a place where the rights of all people, smokers, nonsmokers, vapers and nonvapers 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.

Chicago
1st August 2018
With e-cigarettes now more popular among teens than traditional cigarettes, U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) has introduced legislation to crack down on flavorings in e-cigarettes and cigars.Durbin believes companies are marketing towards kids with the use of flavoring such as cake batter, whipped cream and gummy bears. “When the people who make these products, like JUUL, insist this is just for adults to quit smoking tobacco products, bologna, you wouldn’t be pedaling these flavors to adults,” Durbin said. Another uninformed legislator.

Milwaukee

The Milwaukee Bucks will designate as non-smoking not only the new Fiserv Forum but also the entire 30-acre arena district. This ban includes e-cigarettes.

The Control of Tobacco Products and Electronic Delivery Systems Bill (‘Tobacco Bill’), which is open for comment until 9 August 2018, imposes draconian new rules and restrictions on the sale and use of tobacco products, and controversially places electronic delivery systems (e-cigarettes or “vapes”) under harsh regulation.

Australia Cans vs Bottles
1st August 2018
Crack. Fizz. Gulp. Ahhhhhh. Is there a drinking experience more classically Australian than ripping the ring-pull off a beer? "The visceral pleasure from that first crack of a beer can is identical to popping a champagne cork," says wine and drinks writer Mike Bennie. "There's also huge appeal in the tinnie's nostalgia factor."

Vaping
17th July 2018
The news media and activists like to hype e-cigarettes and flavored tobacco products as a health hazard, but the reality is that e-cigarettes could help save smokers’ lives. Vaping can help you stop smoking tobacco, find a flavor you like and just try it. Worked for me and I had no trouble adjusting, never missed a cigarette. Now no one knows that I still do something I enjoy!
