Time: 2:00 p.m.
Presenters: Joelle Lester and Desmond Jenson, Staff Attorneys, Tobacco Control Legal Consortium
Description: On April 25, 2014, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration published a proposed rule to allow the agency to begin regulating all tobacco products. The FDA has been regulating cigarettes, cigarette tobacco, roll-your-own tobacco and smokeless tobacco since the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act was passed in 2009, but without this proposed rule, the FDA cannot regulate e-cigarettes, cigars, “little cigars,” dissolvable products or hookah. While the FDA has taken an important step, the proposed rule leaves many gaps in regulation that must be addressed. In this webinar, staff attorneys from the Tobacco Control Legal Consortium will explain the FDA’s proposal and how public health advocates and professionals can press the agency to strengthen the regulation.
