US Health Regulators Drop Plan To Sharply Cut Nicotine In Cigarettes

The US department of health and human services has shelved a proposal to drastically cut the level of nicotine in cigarettes, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday, citing a regulatory document.

The US government proposed cutting nicotine in cigarettes to 'non-addictive' levels in 2017 in a regulatory shift that was designed to move smokers toward potentially less harmful e-cigarettes.

The US Food and Drug Administration, which comes under the Department of Health and Human Services, did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
