"The federal ban on flavored cigarettes, imposed by the same law that authorized the Food and Drug Administration to regulate tobacco products, took effect [September 22nd]."
FDA agents went down to Alabama and told an owner of a tobacco store that the ban included cigarillos. Another store owner was told to remove every flavored tobacco product that "looked like a cigarette" but didn't know themselves what that meant.
After receiving conflicting reports from the FDA on what a cigarette is, one of the FDA's lawyers stated that if consumers believe a product is a cigarette, then the law defines it as one regardless of how it's labeled. So I guess we should give cigarettes a different name so the government will leave them alone!
