From Vaping Digest:

Clive Bates is well known for his harm reduction advocacy. The former ASH UK man, who campaigned against smoking, has embraced vaping as a tobacco-harm reduction tool. He has teamed up with Carrie Wade from The R Street Institute to produce a compelling and powerful document arguing for flavoured eliquids.

The R Street Institute is an American conservative and libertarian think tank. It’s stated mission is to “engage in policy research and outreach to promote free markets and limited, effective government.” Carrie Wade is its Director of Harm Reduction Policy.
