New FDA regulations

On June 22nd the new FDA regulation of tobacco products will go into effect across the United States. Included in these new regulations are limits on the sale of cigarettes or smokeless tobacco to people younger than 18, the sale of cigarette packages with less than 20 cigarettes, the distribution of free samples of cigarettes, the distribution of free samples of smokeless tobacco, and limits on tobacco brand name sponsorship of any athletic, musical or other social or cultural events. One noticeable change you will see in stores is the elimination of the terms Light, Medium or Low Tar because studies have shown that all cigarettes are harmful even when described differently. Instead you will see the terms Gold, Silver and Blue on packs to differentiate between the various kinds.
