The Food and Drug Administration announced on Tuesday that for the first
time it had begun exercising its power to regulate cigarettes and other
tobacco products, an authority it was given under a 2009 law supported by President Obama.
Agency officials said they had authorized the sale of two new products —
both of them Newport cigarettes made by the Lorillard Tobacco Company —
and rejected four other competitors. The law forbade them to name the rejected
products, they said.
