This week Congress is considering giving the FDA control over the regulation of tobacco. They also are considering banning Flavored and Clove cigarettes under a misguided notion that flavored cigarettes are enticing kids to smoke.
We find that assertion ridiculous based on the customer profile we see in our company and franchise store locations.
Adults are coming in and buying flavored cigarettes for a change to the same old inferior cigarettes that Big Tobacco has been forcing on tobacco consumers for years. Big Tobacco brought FDA control over tobacco on themselves with their immoral attempts at marketing to kids in the first place.
Our sales of flavored tobacco are doing very well and should the FDA take control, the only way to enjoy a flavored cigarette is to make it yourself with our bulk tobacco. We’re ramping up our production of flavored tobacco just in case Big Tobacco can’t buy enough Congressmen to stop the FDA bill.
