PostSubject: Butt Out: Big Tobacco in bed with FDA   Sun Jun 07, 2009 1:43 pm

From the story.......
Patrick Basham argues that Philip Morris is teaming with anti-tobacco groups to write legislation beneficial to its business.

Basham has taken on one of the most intriguing deals in Washington -- how Philip Morris USA came to support Food and Drug Administration oversight -- in a new book titled Butt Out! How Philip Morris Burned Ted Kennedy, the FDA & the Anti-Tobacco Movement.

Basham is a director at the Democracy Institute, a Libertarian public-policy research group in Washington. He is an adjunct scholar at the Cato Institute and an adjunct lecturer at Johns Hopkins University. He also co-wrote Diet Nation: Exposing the Obesity Crusade.

Basham's book focuses on how Philip Morris has worked with anti-tobacco groups to create potential FDA regulations that would cement it as the dominant U.S. manufacturer and stifle smokeless innovation being developed by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co.
