The Troutman Pepper Tobacco Team was featured in part one of a two-part podcast on recent developments in the tobacco industry and what to expect for the coming year. In this podcast, Bryan Haynes, Agustin Rodriguez and Nick Ramos discuss developments at the federal level, including important happenings at FDA, including leadership changes, the premarket review process, and actions on non-tobacco nicotine products. They also touch on the premium cigar industry’s challenge to FDA’s warning label requirement, the tobacco industry’s challenge to FDA’s graphic cigarette warning label rule, and a court order that resolved the government’s long-running civil racketeering lawsuit against the largest U.S. cigarette companies.

Stay tuned for part two of this series.
