FDA Deadline Extended for E-Cigarette
The Food and Drug Administration has extended until
August 8 the deadline for comments on its plan to expand its
regulation of tobacco products to include electronic cigarettes.
Over 60,000 comments have been received so far.
The FDA wants to regulate other tobacco products because
the use of tobacco continues to be the leading cause of preventable
disease and death in the United States, according to regulators.
The FDA would deem electronic cigarettes, e-cigarette liquid,
cigars, pipe tobacco, gels and waterpipe tobacco subject to
its regulatory authority.
The only exception would be accessories to tobacco products
like humidors, hookah tongs, lighters and charcoal burners.

A companion to Old Gowrie. A shade darker, that edge of greater
strength, a difference in aroma but otherwise a tobacco in
the same fine tradition. Ready rubbed.
Dan Tobacco's Hamburger Veermaster (50
A classic sailor`s flake tobacco made from rich Golden Virginias,
sweet and mild. This one was purchased in 12/07.
