Obama signed this into law today:


Obama signs tobacco law, cites own struggle to quit smoking
The president OKs legislation that gives the FDA regulation power and aims to stop youth-marketing.

By Christi Parsons
June 23, 2009
Reporting from Washington -- Citing his own experience as a teenage smoker, President Obama on Monday predicted that a new law giving the Food and Drug Administration sweeping power to regulate tobacco will help young people avoid the smoking habit he has struggled with for years.

The measure, which Obama signed into law Monday, will ban candy-, fruit- and spice-flavored cigarettes and prohibit use of tobacco-product logos and brand names in sponsoring athletic and entertainment events.

The law also requires that tobacco companies fully disclose ingredients and additives, stop targeting youth with their marketing campaigns, quit using terms such as "light," "low" and "mild" to market their products, and include warning labels on packaging that dominate the front and rear panels.

Yes, and much like other Canadian ideas, (oh say label laws :roll: ) the USA will act on it, make it better and be touted as a world leader.
