Trump Wants FDA out of the tobacco business

This has the potential of good or bad, depending on how it is enacted.

The FDA out of tobacco, yes; another government agency, no.

Unfortunately it would take an act of Congress. The FDA has control of tobacco through The Family Smoking and Tobacco Control Act. Big Tobacco actually likes this law since eventually it will give them control over most tobacco.
