FDA To Regulate Tobacco?

Lawmakers are planning again to try to pass legislation that would require government regulation of cigarettes and other tobacco products.

Proposed legislation would allow the FDA to demand the reduction or elimination of cancer-causing chemicals. And it would ban candy-flavored cigars and cigarettes.

Congressman Henry Waxman plans to introduce the legislation that is supported by President Barack Obama who is trying to kick the habit himself.
