The U.S. food and drug administration is reviewing quality cigars because the fear of anti-smoking groups may weaken the law.
The agency is seeking guidance on how to manage quality cigars. It expanded the definition of tobacco products in 2016 and brought quality cigars to its supervision in the process. With Friday’s request, the FDA is asking for more information.
The us food and drug administration (fda) announced on Friday’s proposed rules said in a notice in advance, it is how to define quality cigar advice, how to use these products as well as any public health considerations. It requires previously uncommitted data and research results.
The FDA also wants to know whether premium cigars pose a different risk, or to use different models compared with other flammable tobacco products, said Scott Gottlieb, the commissioner, in a statement.
“As we continue to push forward to significantly reduce the multi-year roadmap of tobacco-related disease and death, we realize that” high quality “cigar how to accord with our policy framework of continuing interest,” he said.
The head of the anti-smoking group, the Truth Initiative, said a new review of senior cigar regulation was “backsliding and wasting time”. Matthew myers, President of the smokeless children’s movement, urged the FDA not to modify the rules that allow the agency to regulate quality cigars and other tobacco products.
“There is no public health reason to exempt any tobacco product from FDA regulation,” myers said in a statement. “Instead, the fda should take several key actions to accelerate progress in reducing tobacco use.”

A quality cigar company welcomed the news.
JC Newman Cigar company’s general counsel, Drew Newman said in a statement: “we are still optimistic that luxury Cigar industry will eventually pass legislation, litigation or rules to reduce the negative impact of the FDA’s regulatory departments.”
The FDA announced a comprehensive plan last summer. The agency has adopted the idea that nicotine products are present in a continuous risk, and traditional cigarettes are the most harmful, and alternatives such as electronic cigarettes may be less risky.
Last week, the FDA took the first step toward reducing the amount of nicotine in cigarettes. Earlier this week, the agency said it would review the flavor of the characters, including menthol, to appeal to young people who smoke, and that adult smokers who smoke switch to less harmful products.
