Questions that remain are: what would be an "acceptable" level of nicotine, how would that be controlled in tobacco not processed like big name cigarette tobacco, and the ever popular question, would this apply to pipes and cigars?


Aaaaaand GO!

My guess is that the major tobacco companies will be fighting this if they pass it. I really have nothing of value to add to the conversation, but would be quite upset if it found its way to affecting pipe tobacco

To be honest, I am not really surprised.
This movement against tobacco in general is taking place all over the world.
The decisions about forbitting tobacco are only slowed down by the grief of the governments about the taxes for tobacco.
This is smoldering for about 25 years.
In fact, it's all about money health.
At least I see this for german governal development...

Just the federal government stepping in where they have no business being. It’s not their jobs to tell us how to live.
Sadly, this is a global battle.
Of course, this forum risks uniting the sort of people that find it suspicious when every nation-state government on the planet is united on a new topic.

The FDA is owned and operated by the big corporate food and agra industry and the pharmaceutical industry...so it's reasonable conjecture that the primary reason for this is probably big pharma wanting a monopoly on nicotine.

One thing's for sure based on the FDA's track record...they don't give a fuck about health and safety, so I know it's not about that.
