Harriet’s gun media — bumming cigarettes

Bumming Cigarettes is a short film about a brief and intimate meeting between a young Black lesbian woman who is in the process of taking an HIV test and a middle aged Black Gay HIV Positive man. Coming off of the devastation of a bad breakup with a girlfriend, Vee musters up the courage to go and take an HIV test to put her worst fears to rest. What she experiences during her trip to a local clinic is much more than she expects while sharing a cigarette with a stranger, Jimmy, during the 10 minutes that she awaits her test results.

Alia Hatch makes a strong debut in this short film, as a young Black lesbian woman looking to discover her status. This is a breakthrough performance for James Tolbert, a native Philadelphian and professional actor living with HIV for 21 years. Alia and James deliver a moving performance in this film that explores complex issues surrounding the HIV/AIDS epidemic including the loss of intimacy and stigma that persons living with HIV/AIDS may encounter, while also encouraging awareness around HIV/AIDS testing and the way we treat persons living with the disease.

Fda moves to regulate e-cigarettes for the first time

The Food and Drug Administration is to propose its first regulations on e cigarettes today in a move with sweeping implications for the nascent market. The administration plans to ban the sale of the nicotine vapor dispensers to people under 18 and mandate photo ID for purchases, but there won’t be any restrictions on marketing or flavors at first. Manufacturers would, however, be required to secure FDA approval of their products, and print warnings on packaging that e cigarettes contain addictive nicotine. Free samples would also be banned.

» historic day for the FDA and for public health.»

An FDA spokesperson tells The New York Times that the proposals do not reflect a decision on the ultimate safety of e cigarettes these regulations are a first step to bring the market under the administration’s purview, and further rulings on matters such as flavoring are likely to follow. FDA commissioner Margaret Hamburg said it was «an historic day for the FDA and for public health,» in comments reported by The Wall Street Journal, and that the regulations would help children avoid «a lifetime of nicotine addiction.»

E cigarettes are generally considered less harmful than their tobacco equivalents, and many people use them to wean themselves off a smoking habit. Last year the European Parliament rejected a plan to classify e cigarettes as medicinal products and reject their sales.
