Good to read some good news on this, for a change, even if it is only a postponement. Thanks for sharing :)

No problem.
We are definitely not our of the woods on this issue, but if it buys us a few more months of cellering then I am good with it. :D

...Under the revised timeline for newly deemed tobacco products, applications for newly-regulated combustible tobacco products, such as cigars, pipe tobacco and hookah tobacco, would need to be submitted to the FDA by Aug. 8, 2021, and product applications for e-cigarettes currently on the market would be required by Aug. 8, 2022...


Am I reading this right...? :shock:

Interesting. Not sure what the implications may be, except to give, as mentioned, a touch more breathing space. Wonder why this deadline? Reactions from the tobacco industry?
A case of "Watch this space"...

Thanks for posting.
