So, does the gay community have a sudden influx of funds that the anti-smokers want to grab from them?

No, no, Sheri! You're supposed to be telling us that it's a plot to shut down the gay bars by reducing/excluding smoking in them! Clearly if queers can't smoke there they won't go there, right?

That would be stealing from themselves. See, there is no honor among anti-smokers.

WHO WE ARE

At the same time, FORCES is an organization in support of scientific integrity and the use of appropriate scientific methodology in the science which is claimed to be at the foundation of public policy. The issue of poor scientific/statistical methodologies, presented as unquestionable and sound science, and the further misrepresentation of the results of those faulty methodologies to the public to justify the current draconian public health policies are fundamental issues taken up by our organization.

clearly the obvious choice for solid information is a site displaying only information that meets the requirements of a group whose acronym acknowledges that their main purpose is to fight regulation of tobacco products. Right.

At least a couple of people noticed that the thread is ostensibly about something with no connection to smoking.

GSK will, if the final testing goes well, be marketing NicVax. Last word I saw was that the Mayo Clinic participated in the trials. Nabi Pharmaceuticals developed the stuff, which is designed to train the immune system (assuming there is a functioning one in the smoker's body to start with) to regard nicotine as a pathogen. Nicotine molecules with antibodies attached are too large to cross the blood/brain barrier.
