The Senate has passed A bill that allows the Food and Drug Administration to regulate tobacco, including new dissolvable tobacco products packaged to look like mints or candy. It’s being called the strongest anti-tobacco measure since the U-S Surgeon General said smoking causes lung cancer more than 40 years ago.

The U.S. House of Representatives took one more look at legislation that would give the U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulatory authority over cigarettes and other tobacco products from ingredients to labeling and marketing. KBOO reporter EmMarie Badio has more.
