    FFS – cutting nicotine levels?!?

    It is the therapeutic ingredient, you know. Think smokers do not have right to enjoy unadulterated product?

    Why not eliminate alcohol from beer, wine, and liquor? Shall we outlaw corn syrup, sugared drinks, prime meats? Diabetes and obesity kill more people than cigarettes.

    Is THC addictive? Let’s broaden the remit of the FDA!

    This is very bad policy.
