The law says nothing either way about the FDA checking the cigarette
paper (usually
chlorine-bleached) in light of paper pulp being an agricultural
product. Since nicotine is also an agricultural product, from tobacco
after all, it may be that the FDA will not be allowed to even look at
nicotine levels even though the law does allow the FDA to lower nicotine
levels to almost zero.

It can't prohibit nicotine entirely because...well. ..without some
there would be no Drug there for the Food and DRUG Administration to
administer. No one seems concerned that, if nicotine levels are
lowered, that would prompt more and deeper smoking as smokers try to get
satisfying levels. That would be swell for taxes, but pretty bad for
human health and life.

The idea of permitting only plain tobacco smoking products---unless an
adulterant can be proven to not add to the still-undisclosed inherent
risks of plain tobacco---is an idea that the chlorine industries (oil,
pesticides, pharms, plastics, etc.) and their insurers, investors and
friends in government will not consider.
