This law seems pretty simple to me. How about you?
“(B) ADDITIONAL SPECIAL RULE.—Beginning 2 years after the date of enactment of the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act, a tobacco product manufacturer shall not use tobacco, including foreign grown tobacco, that contains a pesticide chemical residue that is at a level greater than is specified by any tolerance applicable under Federal law to domestically grown tobacco.“
Presumably if the tolerance was zero, like with totally banned DDT and many of the other pesticides you see here that can’t be applied to domestically grown tobacco, then the law would apply. Zero tolerance, right? So what’s this data and why has FDA allowed this illegal and dangerous exposure to go on for years without a single move to intervene? I know for a fact that they know exactly what is happening, and I’ll leave it to you to decide why they don’t care.
Who’s smoking those Swisher Sweets, and why do you suppose the diabetes, obesity and hypertension in those communities are so extreme?
Search “exposure” to any of the pesticides in that table along with keywords diabetes, obesity or hypertension and you’ll find out.
