After a two year delay, the White House finally gave the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authority over all tobacco products, including cigars, hookah, and e-cigarettes, in a move that protects both kids and adults across the country from taking up a life-threatening nicotine habit.
Big news, You're the Cure Advocates!
This means big changes are coming!
- Product manufacturers must now register with the FDA, provide ingredient lists, and obtain approval to market new tobacco products.
- The rule stops the use of misleading terms such as “light”, “low”, or “mild,” bans free samples, and prohibits sales to anyone under 18, as well as most vending machines.
- Packages and advertisements must include health warnings.
Thank you so much for your relentless work holding the Administration accountable to protect public health. Your actions have made a huge difference and we couldn’t be prouder!
