Smokenjoey and Greg Conley

Hey folks, Smokenjoey here with an interview with Greg Conley. This video marks the last of the major videos from the VCCNE. As John Manzione and I gear up for the VCCTN in Chattannoga this October, I will work on stitching together some of our funnier moments at the event, as a sort of gag reel. Look for it over the next 2 or 3 weeks. Don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE to my Youtube Channel or visit Smokenjoey.Com. Also, I’m having a huge giveaway on my Facebook page. A year’s supply of eJuice from NicVape. Check it out!


In the meantime, from the Heartland Institute, here’s some background on Greg.

Gregory Conley joined the Heartland Institute in February of 2014 as a research fellow in the areas of tobacco and nicotine policy and regulation.

Prior to joining Heartland, Conley served as the volunteer legislative director for the Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association (CASAA), the largest consumer group representing the interests of users of smoke-free tobacco and nicotine products. There, he led grassroots efforts aimed at defeating legislation that aimed to make low-risk alternatives to smoking like electronic cigarettes and smokeless tobacco less accessible or affordable.   His interest in the field of tobacco harm reduction (THR) began after he quit smoking with an e-cigarette in August 2010.

Conley has given testimony before the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, as well as committees in numerous state legislatures.  His work has appeared in several outlets, including the New York PostNational Review OnlineReason Online, and Convenience Store Decisions.

Conley earned a Juris Doctor and Masters in Business Administration from Rutgers University.  In addition to his work with Heartland, Conley is an attorney and an independent legislative consultant and policy analyst with a specialization in health, tax and tobacco issues.
