Default Talk facts about the illegalization of Fruit Tobacco & Chat

That link contains pretty much all the facts you will need & hundreds of opinions from anywhere involving flavored tobacco, pipe tobacco, fruit tobacco & clove cigarette smokers. May contain a couple bad words too. So be careful

from: http://www.boston.com/news/politics/...gns_tou_1.html
"The law, which Congress passed overwhelmingly, also restricts makers of tobacco products from using candy or fruit flavorings in their products and bans them from advertising at sporting or entertainment events."
According to the new bill signed into law by President Obama, the tobacco industry is now banned from using fruit or candy flavorings in their products.
