Abstract: These are not the best of times for the tobacco industry. President Obama just signed legislation that would place tobacco products under the regulatory purview of the Food and Drug Administration. Among tobacco manufacturers, Richmond-based Altria Group, which owns Philip Morris, supported the bill. The Triad’s tobacco companies, Reynolds American and Lorillard, opposed it.
