FDA moves ahead with ‘historic’ plan to reduce nicotine in cigarettes
THURSDAY, March 15, 2018 (The Washington Post) — The Food and Drug Administration on Thursday took the first concrete action to reduce nicotine in cigarettes to make them much less addictive, opening a regulatory process described as a “historic first step” by the agency’s top official.
Commissioner Scott Gottlieb unveiled an “advance notice of proposed rulemaking,” the earliest step in what promises to be a long, complicated regulatory effort to lower nicotine levels to be minimally addictive or nonaddictive.
