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.

The origins of what became GN Tobacco are somewhat murky. What was always clear is that the initial Oden's Snus marketing plan hinged on offering the snus with the highest nicotine levels available on the market. Everything else was secondary.
Fast-forwarding to 2016 and GNT's Q3 new product introductions, a trend had solidified into a huge change from 2009......
You will never see published a letter from a cigarette smoker thanking Altria or Reynolds American for addicting them to nicotine through cigarettes. Likewise, a short note saying "I'm a life-long smoker. So happy today to learn I have lung cancer!" is even more unlikely.
In the case of nicotine-addicts now cigarette-free because of Swedish snus, thank you letters and testimonials are more the rule than the exception.....
