U..S. Nicotine Regulations Delayed

U.S. nicotine regulations appear to be loosened.

New tobacco regulations announced by the U.S. FDA to "begin a public dialogue" on how to reduce nicotine to nonaddictive levels. These FDA plans allow manufacturers of e-cigarettes and newly regulated combustible products deadline extensions for several years to submit product review applications. Dr. Scott Gottlieb, in an interview suggested that the FDA may become more open toward e-cigarettes.

PositiveTip: The best health policy is to never start smoking, and if you do, take the necessary steps to quit the habit now.
