The FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products Has Even More of a Burden

Date:

On April 14, 2022, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) formally took on a new role: the regulation of synthetic nicotine, which now falls under the definition of a tobacco product.

Although the agency believes that it needs to have this authority, the sudden change threatens adult access to hundreds of thousands of safer tobacco products.

The new authority was included in the 2,700-plus pages of the omnibus appropriations bill at the behest of a squad of liberal, nanny-state lawmakers that continuously refuse to acknowledge tobacco harm reduction, and in fact, have urged the FDA to ban all sales of flavored vapor products.

While the FDA has not banned all flavored vapes, in September 2021, the agency did issue denial orders to nearly 1 million flavored e-liquid products, commonly found in adult-only, specialty vape shops.
