"Reducing nicotine doesn't make a cigarette safe, it just makes it less addictive", Donny said welcoming the recent news from the FDA. (RAI), said it was not surprised by the FDA's plans to reduce nicotine levels in cigarettes.

In addition, regulations that outline the details on the information the agency expects to be included in the Modified Risk Tobacco Product (MRTP), Premarket Tobacco Applications (PMTAs), and reports to demonstrate Substantial Equivalence (SE) are meant to be released by the agency.
