"Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), and Sherrod Brown (D-OH) wrote to FDA Commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg this week to request an update on regulatory action that would subject newer tobacco products entering the market to the Tobacco Control Act."

“We respectfully request that FDA build on [previous regulatory] successes and move swiftly to issue a strong regulation that would legally treat or deem all tobacco products, including cigars, pipe tobacco, and hookah tobacco and accessories, as subject to the Tobacco Control Act… The tobacco industry has moved quickly and creatively to both undermine provisions of the Tobacco Control Act, and to develop new forms of product that encourage the continued harmful addiction of our nation’s children and adults… It is critical to exercise all available regulatory authorities to rapidly and dramatically reduce tobacco’s harmful physical and economic costs to our nation.”’

These people should mind their own business! Send them an email and let them know what you think at www.senate.gov
