Idk...I mean, its good to know what exactly we are smoking. But, I have a feeling its mostly gonna be for cigarettes only.


But it is nice to finally know what's in hookah tobacco as well.

I'm okay with it. confident in their ability? not after peanuts, spinach etc... but if this is waht they want, go for it. Hell, it may give us more info on what we are putting into ourselves, so thats fine

It is not a good idea, simply because the FDA is having enough trouble as it is protecting our food supply as it is. Also with this added power it will be easier for the Nannies to branch out into other tobaccos. It is a slippy slope we are on.

i like the idea of knowing what is in all tobacco products, but the fda is useless as of now the way it is set up.

hopefully if it works cig companies (PM included) will stop putting in so many chemicals and using paper soaked in tobacco juices as 50% of the tobacco.

i think it will also be good since people are allergic to stuff or cannot take things into their bodes and this will answer the questions of what is really in there (one of the questions i keep hearing is if there is gluten in any tobacco products or not from some people i know with celiac disease).

shisha i dont think will change since the ingredients are pretty much there on all the packages, maybe a specific on flavor and preservatives but not a huge change.

and as to the 9bucks a pack where the hell are they looking, maybe its because i can drive to the tobacco factories in a few mins but a pack is less than 5 bucks here, i know up in MA when my friend was stationed there stuff was really high like 8 bucks for a can of dip that was 4.50 here

I think it's awsome, if anything it will show everyone just how much better hookah tobacco is than cigarettes and will finally start to end all the lies.

exactly how i feel...

but then on one hand i feel that this is nice but lets be honest... these tobacco companies have so much damn money they now can put their hands into the FDAs pocket and regulate what goes in so basically...

FDA says .23 mg of rat poison is acceptable... how can i argue.

its all bullshit.
