General Loose (lös) Snus doesn't make the cut in US stores

Based on consumer demand, Swedish Match North America (SMNA) has pulled the loose cut version of General Snus from its 20,000 US retail locations catalog.  About 98% of all General Snus sold over the counter (OTC) in US convenience and tobacco stores is of the portion snus variety.

Offroad Los Kit1

The SnusCENTRAL.org Bunker, located at an undisclosed location in Texas, USA, receive a shipment of the new Offroad End-of-the-World Snus Survival Kits.

Published in Larry Waters Reports!

After 2 and a half years of fumbling the Swedish Match application for Modified Risk Tobacco Product (MRTP) status on their General Snus products sold in US convenience stores, the FDA announced on Dec 14th they had taken "action".

After a careful review of the entire MRTPA process concerning General Snus and FDA's eventual ruling, a fair-minded person can only conclude that NO tobacco product will ever win MRTP status, regardless of the merits, from this FDA Center for Tobacco Products. 

This begs the question, Congressional mandate notwithstanding, why does FDA perpetuate this cruel, expensive, and time consuming farce?  Simply make the MRTPA process a one page form, hold the required public comment period, and then deny the application.  That would save both the government and the manufacturer huge amounts of money while delivering the same outcome as the current process...minus the hypocrisy.
