View Full Version : FDA to regulate tobacco

After winning sizable majorities in both House and Senate this week, a new bill would allow the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to regulate tobacco. President Barack Obama, who has called it a way to "protect our kids and improve our public health," is expected to sign the bill into law soon.

So, will the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms now just the the Bureau of Alcohol and Firearms?

What's the point of this? Sounds like bullshit legislation just to show that teh gubbamint's doing something, "change" for the sake of "change".
