Biden Administration Seeks to Remove Most Nicotine from Cigarettes 

Jordan Dixon-Hamilton 22 Jun 2022

President Joe Biden’s administration is planning remove nearly all nicotine from cigarettes sold in the U.S. in an attempt to get people to quit the habit.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will propose a rule limiting nicotine in May 2023, according to the Wall Street Journal. The proposed rule “would establish a maximum nicotine level in cigarettes and certain finished tobacco products.”

The plan was revealed on Tuesday as part of the Biden administration’s “unified agenda,” which is a collection of planned federal regulations released biannually.

FDA Commissioner Robert Califf said in a statement:

    Nicotine is powerfully addictive. Lowering nicotine levels to minimally addictive or non-addictive levels would decrease the likelihood that future generations of young people become addicted to cigarettes and help more currently addicted smokers to quit.

Roughly 12.5 percent of Americans were cigarette smokers in 2020, according to Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data. Nearly 480,000 Americans die of smoking-related causes annually, making cigarette deaths the number one preventable death in the country. An additional 7,300 nonsmokers die from lung cancer caused by second hand smoke.

Biden’s attempt to get Americans to stop smoking cigarettes is aligned with his cancer moonshot, where his administration plans to cut the cancer death rate by 50 percent over the next 25 years.

Are they also going to remove most nicotine from e-cigarettes, nicotine patches, and nicotine gum?
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

I've known a lot of cleaned up heroin junkies over the years, and all of them say that quitting cigarettes is harder than quitting heroin.

Smuggling cigarettes over the border will simply become a replacement source.

Not possible!  Smuggling is illegal, don'tcha know.  There are already laws in place that prevent anything illegal crossing the border.

The Gov has tried, and failed many time when it attempts to control lifestyle choices with amendments and legislations.
