    Default FDA bans 7 Star Ariva and Stonewall dissolvable tobacco lozenges (that are very similar to NRT lozenges)

    FDA bans seven (i.e. issued Not Substantially Equivalent Orders for) Star Ariva and Stonewall dissolvable tobacco lozenges (which are very similar to FDA approved nicotine lozenges) that Star stopped selling two years ago
    Misbranded and Adulterated NSE Tobacco Products
    This Week in CTP - FDA Issues Seven NSE Orders for Dissolvable Tobacco Products

    So much for FDA considering the continuum of risk in its regulatory decisions (as FDA has approved more than 50 SE orders for cigarettes).


    BTW Star Scientific is owned by Jonnie Williams, who became the US DOJ's star witness in its indictment of former VA Governor Bob McDonnell, whose trial ended today.

    FDA regs don't criminalize people for possessing or using banned products. Rather, they just ban the manufacturer from marketing the product.

    I have about a half dozen boxes of different flavored Star Ariva lozenges in my growing collection of tobacco/nicotine products (including more than a hundred products that FDA has ruled as Misbranded and banned).

    Darn. I was looking into dissolvables as a potential fall back if BG made it impossible to continue vaping.

    I just got another 5 litres of nic base from Decadent Vapours(Wales UK) just in case PACT gets amended :-)

    I was too, but I had speculated that they might not be available in the U.S. Nic water would have been nice, but they banned that too.

    Imagine a world in which they banned cigarettes, only cigarettes, but allowed every other nicotine product to be freely legal. That would actually make some sense... but of course that will never happen.

    Now, if they are blocked for not being SE, does that mean the deeming regs are already being imposed? Or are these products banned only if the regulations become final rule?

    And perhaps, just the opposite will happen

    I can't believe this.... I really can't. What is going on?

    Why are they banning dissolvables? Can Swedish snus be next????? This is frightening.
