    Looming FDA Regulation

    Washington Post Article

    Lots of little factoids but no real information about what the FDA intends to regulate. My magic 8 ball says they will limit choices and, either directly or indirectly, make things cost more.

    I would beware of what you wish for


    note: In all seriousness the FDA regulation of tobacco is a serious matter and I believe it is going to be the slippery slope they may get cigars out of it this time around but there will be more chances that they will continue to push the issue unless there is some sort of strong lobby...

    I'm sure it is still speculation to some extent, but as if I don't have enough to worry about this comes up.

    I think there are plenty of people ahead of you on that one... It costs something like 20 cents a pack I believe or something insane. It is super cheap if you do it in bulk growing etc and run an efficient operation...

    I signed the petition. Our wonderful state of MN is planning to tax tobacco even more very soon. I say ok, but in return let us get back our smoking bars etc.

    I might not be against taxes going up if I ever saw any tangible return for my money. Unfortunately, no matter how much money the government gets (state or fed), everything that money is supposed to pay for is still crappy as ever, in some cases declining. The only thing I really see is politicians multiplying and getting richer.

    +1. I'm not opposed to taxes, just what most of them are spent on.
