Is this the beginning of the end for Big Tobacco?

Yesterday the Senate took what surely will be seen as an historic step to pass legislation putting the tobacco industry under the regulation of the Food and Drug Administration, the New York Times reports. The new Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act does not ban smoking outright, but it would give the FDA power to reduce nicotine content and regulate chemicals in cigarettes.

You see Commandante, there is no substitute for a Pre-F.D.A. Cohiba.
