The Tobacco Control Community and Regulaiton

Why The tobacco control community needs to re-address Codentify and industry regulation in general.

As time goes on more and more people seem to be writing me. Sometimes with questions, and sometimes with comments. I have received both threats and praises alike and obviously prefer the latter. Recently, I was asked why I take the time to write so much about Codentify instead of other important tobacco control issues.

I felt it important to answer publicly: Codentify is a stealthy move the tobacco industry is making in order to subvert even the most basic capabilities of the European Union and member state governments to keep tabs on their production process. This has massive implications on all other aspects of the industry’s impact in Europe and to a greater extent, the world.

This critical initiative on behalf of the tobacco industry is highly intricate and technical in nature. The minutia and technicality of the issue is how the matter has remained out of critical public Eye. Unlike the health affects of smoking or other mainstream tobacco control critiques, Codentify and regulation fraud is an unfamiliar language to the average European

Interestingly enough, those in the know have reached out to me from as far away as South Africa, Indonesia and the United States asking to collaborate.

I think in the coming months the public will begin to hear more and more about the tobacco industries attempts to steal the regulatory capabilities away from third parties and create a monopoly on insight into their production practices.

The Tobacco industry is extremely sophisticated and it seems they will try to sell Codentify to other industries in an attempt to look back and say “look it’s being used elsewhere.” we cannot let that happen and early awareness is critical.

In the coming months I will be more formally reaching out to critical activists around the world to bring attention to this overlooked issue that could become the linchpin for the tobacco industries greatest victory against humanity in decades.
Conversely, early awareness can lead to the tobacco control movements greatest success since the introduction of plain packaging and massive warning labels.

  1. I think you’re right about this, “I think in the coming months the public will begin to hear more and more about the tobacco industries attempts to steal the regulatory capabilities away from third parties and create a monopoly on insight into their production practices.” Or, I hope so. A lot of dirty secrets are coming out this year. I hope people start to wake up soon.

  2. Perhaps there should be a way to raise awareness about tobacco regulations and fraud among more Europeans. That should get the ball rolling.

  3. This is really helpful & informative post.. First thanks for it.. People should know about the rolls & regulation to control smoking on public place first then they should know more about the bad & long term effect using tobacco.. We have more responsibility to do more n more camping for “Effect on Tobacco.”

  4. Very great article and I have learned a lot.I think people need to be aware of the tabboco regulation and rules. To be honest wasn’t aware too.

  5. When people think of issues with tobacco regulations, they don’t often consider identify as one of the main problems. Tobacco companies are trying to avoid regulations and hurt many more people while the news fails to report on it. I feel you talking about it will help more people realize its danger and slowly more and more people will begin to speak out.

  6. Raising awareness and seeking collaboration from countries outside of Europe would be most helpful in enforcing regulations against the tobacco companies. With more entities policing the industry, it will be less likely that they will get away with going around the regulations.
