Is the FDA finally getting serious about fighting combustible cigarettes? For the past several years, it’s been hard to tell, considering the agency’s animus towards nicotine vaping.
But some say FDA’s recent move to ban menthol cigarettes may be “particularly effective” in reducing smoking, especially if FDA makes mint and menthol flavored e-cigarettes available as an option to switch.
In this episode of RegWatch, hear why Tony Abboud, the Executive Director at the Vapor Technology Association, believes the Menthol Cigarette Rule could be the most significant step FDA has taken to protect public health, but only if the agency follows its own science on e-cigarettes.
Plus, get a full update on the FDA’s Juul ban, the status of synthetic nicotine products, and the startling news about a top FDA official who jumped to a new job at Phillip Morris International, the world’s largest tobacco company.
