Default Re: New tobacco law. Will it affect hookah?

From the BBC

The bill empowers the FDA to:
[LIST][*]Limit nicotine levels - though not banning nicotine or cigarettes entirely[*]Attempt to limit the appeal of smoking among young people, by limiting the use of flavours, restricting advertising in publications targeting young people, and banning outdoor tobacco advertising within 1,000 feet (300m) of schools[*]Require tobacco companies to get FDA approval for new products[*]Bar terms such as "light" or "mild" in tobacco packaging which imply a smaller risk to health, and introduce graphic new health warnings of packets[/LIST]
