FDA Plans to Regulate Nicotine Levels in Cigarettes

 

The agency hopes to bring the substance down to “nonaddictive” levels, but there’s no consensus on what those are

For the first time in history the Food and Drug Administration plans to regulate the level of nicotine in cigarettes, attempting to bring it down to “non-addictive” levels. The move, announced Friday, was praised by scientists — who also noted that there’s no consensus on what a “non-addictive” level of nicotine is.

“I guess I personally would frame it as less addictive, because I’m not sure about that, ‘non-addictive,’” said Eric Donny, director of the Center for the Evaluation of Nicotine and Cigarettes at the University of Pittsburgh, who noted that FDA commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb did say that he wanted to reduce the nicotine level in cigarettes until they were “minimally or non-addictive.”

I hope the FDA also chooses to regulate:

  • Fragrance levels on perfumes and colones
  • Light emissions from street lights
  • Personal Flatulence
  • The amount of time anyone can watch TV
  • The amount of time someone can be awake before a required nap (say every 2 hours?)

    really?

    And what if nicotine is not even the most addictive compound in a cigarette? Sounds like nonsense..

    At an advanced old age the street lights should not be a bother since they come on after bedtime.
