The FDA took an important step to protect public health by publishing a final rule in May 2016 to begin regulating e-cigarettes, cigars, and other tobacco products. For this webinar, the Tobacco Control Legal Consortium welcomes Mitch Zeller, Director of the FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products, to explain what is in the FDA’s final deeming rule and how it will be implemented. Consortium staff attorneys discuss the potential next steps for the FDA, and identify policy options for state and local tobacco control advocates to build on the FDA’s historic action.
