FDA approves sale of reduced-nicotine cigarettes

The FDA has authorized the sale of two new low-nicotine cigarettes. The agency cleared applications from 22nd Century Group for its Moonlight and Moonlight Menthol cigarettes. Both products contain 95% less nicotine than their peers. The FDA hopes this will help reduce the number of people addicted to nicotine. The cigarettes, however, present similar health risks as conventional cigarettes.

I bet this will be a collosal failure. Nicotine addiction is the only reason people tolerate that god awful smell and taste. And expense.

as a former smoker of a pack a day for about a decade I definitely would have used these to ease off cigs. start by quiting the nicotine addiction then the act of smoking itself. basically reverse from patches but would be an easier initial transition. edit: wish they made then 0% nicotine though but 95% less is probably good enough
