Monday, June 24, 2013

June 22, 2013, marks the fourth anniversary of the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act of 2009, which granted the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) the authority to regulate tobacco products to benefit public health. Since the Act became law, the FDA has established the Center for Tobacco Products and has begun the work of regulating tobacco products and enforcing those regulations.  In this webinar, speakers will reflect on the past four years of federal tobacco regulation, including successes, disappointments, and hopes for the future.
