Tom Price at HHS could signal very good news on government regulations « Hot Air

This is particularly true on the subject of tobacco regulations. The FDA has been combative toward vaping (which has allowed so many smokers to finally get off of tobacco) rather than embracing it as a less harmful alternative. Other options, such as the smokeless Snus, have similarly run into trouble because the agency wouldn’t grant the manufacturer authority to label them has a healthier alternative to cigarettes. They followed a similar pattern when it comes to the labeling of cigars, where their actions have driven up manufacturing and packaging costs which put smaller producers at risk.

It's not tobacco that worries me, it's cigarettes.
