The FDA is currently accepting public comments on a proposal that would essentially ban all cigarettes on the market today — by mandating that the levels of nicotine be nearly 98 percent lower than current levels – before the FDA has allowed a new market in less harmful products to be established.
Without giving smokers more alternative, less harmful tobacco product options and truthful and accurate information about the benefits of switching to them, this possible new standard could hurt tobacco growers, retailers and wholesalers, is unfair to adult tobacco consumers, and may not be achievable.
The FDA needs to hear from tobacco growers, as this possible rule could have a major impact on your business, the tobacco-growing industry, and our entire economy.
If you are concerned about this possible rule, please provide your comments to the FDA. When you leave your comment, remember to tell the FDA:
