Kennedy/Waxman, S. 982, HR 1256; all very innocuous names for one of the most destructive bills to American Health Care which ever slithered through Congress. Lets call this legislation by it's Official title: Family Smoking Prevention and Control Act. Really, I'm not making that up. It is the Official title of the Kennedy/Waxman legislation.
I'm not even sure why it is called Kennedy/Waxman anyway. Both Bills were substantially written by Philip Morris USA and extremist group Tobacco Free Kids. Add the US Congress which will pass both bills overwhelmingly and we have a NEW Axis of Evil.
Negotiations between Swedish Match AB, and SnusCENTRAL.org over the alleged detention of Swedish Match officials Joakim Blom and Markus Ersmark at the Snus Central Command Bunker experienced an unexpected breakthrough this week.
The Government of Sweden dispatched a squadron of Saab Snus Fighter Jets which deliberately over-flew the Snus Central Command Bunker. How Sweden or Swedish Match discovered the location of the Snus stronghold is as yet unknown.
When is CAMEL Snus NOT Camel SNUS? When Camel Snus is made in Sweden by Japan Tobacco International (JTI); not by R.J. Reynolds in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
FROM: SnusCENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY * Intelligence Briefing for 26 April 2009 *
CATEGORY: Outcome Unconfirmed but Solid Intel on Mr. UNZ
Part of the mission of the SnusCENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY is to monitor the activities of all SnusCENTRAL personnel. No exceptions. Not even Mr. UNZ is exempt from scrutiny...at his own instruction.
Utah becomes the second US State after New York to propose legislation banning the Internet purchase of tobacco products in order to increase tobacco tax collection.
In 2008, Rep Weiner (D-NY) introduced the PACT Act in the US House of Representatives. The PACT act would make it a felony, not to order tobacco over the Internet, but for all common carriers to deliver it to residential customers within the United States. The Bill passed overwhelmingly in the House but did not have time to be considered by the US Senate before the end of the Congressional Session.
The Pact Act is expected to be reintroduced and passed in 2009.

Greetings fellow snus lovers! I'm your host, That Snus Guy. First, let me say that I'm honored to be a part of this great website; SnusCENTRAL.org, which is dedicated to the world we all love: snus! I will do my best to bring you the most informative reviews of the different varieties and flavors of snus out there.
I also want to say "Thanks" to Larry Waters for the creation of SnusCENTRAL and, smuggling me out of danger to be here with you. Thru his generosity of giving me his closet to stay in, a cozy cardboard bed and a bowl full of water each day, I can now share my renowned reviews of snus with you! By the way, 66' Chevy's DO float provided they are on a ship! Still don't know why I had to ride in the trunk though.
Yes, Virginia, there ARE significant differences in the levels of Nicotine in Swedish Snus and American Snus. It has to do with profit and greed on the part of Big American Tobacco, versus giving consumers what they are asking for by Swedish Snus manufacturers. You can read why in a number of my articles, but THIS ONE boils it down if you're interested....and you should be.
SWEDISH SNUS NICOTINE LEVELS:
Swedish/Scandinavian Snus comes in 5 levels of Nicotine:
Ironically, Swedes prefer the Standard 8 mg. nicotine snus. It was the results of studies and consumer focus groups in Norway and the United States which led to the creation of the Strong and Extra Strong Swedish Snus's.
AMERICAN SNUS NICOTINE LEVELS:
Very little is known about the Nicotine Levels of American Snus as the FDA does not require American Snus manufacturers to disclose it. As of April 1st, 2008, here is all we do know and none has been independently confirmed:
What is emerging is a trend and very different marketing philosophy between America and Scandinavia on the purpose of snus.
American snus manufacturers are concentrating on making 1/2 gram products which are sweet, mild in flavor, low in nicotine, and short lasting which forces the consumer to use many more of their portions than they would of Swedish Snus. The American marketing drive currently is that snus is for when you can't smoke; not to replace cigarettes. The sell them as complimentary products since most of American Snus Companies also make cigarettes as well. The ones that don't are just following along.
Scandinavian Snus; rich in taste, high in nicotine, long lasting; is designed to replace the need for cigarettes. With pouches of most Scandinavian snuses now lasting over 2 hours as compared to the 10 to 30 minutes American snus manufacturers claim for their products, you will have to use considerably more American Snus to maintain your comfort level and will less likely to be able to give up cigarettes complete.
THE ARTICLE mentioned above gives you a quick, but thorough understanding of American Tobacco's motives. Also read the FAQ on TASTE. Drug cartels could learn from Big American Tobacco.
As Camel SNUS and Marlboro snus's own official FAQ's demonstrated in my Three Part Series: Camel SNUS and Marlboro snus: US Cigarette Smokers lack of knowledge about REAL Snus being Exploited by Big Tobacco for BIG Profits, there is a lot of misinformation on what snus is, who makes what, and a whole bunch of other related items.
But it's not just Reynolds America and Altria who are taking advantage of American Cigarette Smokers lack of knowledge concerning Swedish Snus: The internet is just loaded with rumors, half-truths, and plain fiction.
