What Joaquin Phoenix got right at the Oscars

What Joaquin Phoenix got right at the Oscars Actor Joaquin Phoenix has been lambasted for his acceptance speech at the 2020 Academy Awards, in which he lent the weight of his celebrity to stamping out the grave evil of domesticating cattle. However, Phoenix made a vital, if less noticed, point that every person should accept and appreciate. It’s worth saying at the outset that this is not to say that the condemnation of Phoenix, who accepted an Oscar for h...

The Trump Administration is cracking down on sweet and fruity e-cigarette pods in an effort to stem teen vaping

The US Food and Drug Administration is cracking down on flavored e-cigarette pods, except tobacco and menthol varieties, as part of an attempt to curb youth vaping. The move would effectively pull sweet and fruity flavored vaping pods from the market, but it excludes open-tank vaping devices, a compromise made for small businesses. Pod-based devices like Juul are more popular among young vapers than open-tank vaping devices. "The enforcement policy we're issuing today confirms our commitment t...

Analysts have credited Juul with single-handedly resurrecting the slumping e-cigarette market. But Juul is confronting challenges that include country-wide bans, warnings from national regulators, investigatio...

How to protect seniors from high drug costs but protect innovation

An unusual bill to constrain drug prices emerged July 25 from the Senate Finance Committee. Its main feature was unprecedented: a government-imposed cap on price increases on medicines in the popular Medicare Part D program. If hikes are higher than inflation, drug companies would have to rebate the excess to the U.S. Treasury. The legislation was unusual in two ways. First, the price cap was embraced by high-level Republicans, who are not usually keen on top-down government controls. The idea w...

Former FDA chief Scott Gottlieb has rejoined the venture world — but he hasn’t forgotten Juul

Scott Gottlieb, the former Food and Drug Administration chief, became known during his tenure for his efforts to regulate the tobacco and e-cigarette industries — and for his particular focus on Juul, the fast-growing e-cigarette company that Gottlieb squarely blames for creating a “youth epidemic” of e-cigarette use by teenagers. Indeed, when he announced that he would be stepping down from his post in early March, it seemed Gottlieb had dealt the tobacco industry a winning hand. There was e...

Regulators just gave some legal hope to food and drink makers using cannabis extract CBD

On Tuesday in a statement, federal regulators hinted at the possibility of a future where some foods and drinks made with cannabis extract CBD could be legal. The move is a slight departure from the FDA's previous messaging on the matter. In the past, the agency suggested that CBD products would be barred because a CBD-based drug called Epidiolex also exists. Valued for its purported wellness benefits, CBD is a $1 billion industry that some analysts predict could boom to $16 billion by 2025. ...
