Does tobacco law have teeth?

“Congress’ action is the first step in more effectively regulating tobacco use and marketing,” says ADA President John S. Findley. The ADA had been lobbying for regulation of tobacco for decades, insisting nicotine is an addictive drug. It called for an outright advertising ban of tobacco products in the 1960s and banned smoking at all ADA events in 1972, when smoking in public venues was still commonplace. In 2003, it called for a $2-per-pack excise tax on cigarettes.
