FDA eCig Ban Deja Vu

The year was 1986, I was in high school, my dad's Firebird was still cool, and an enterprising company came out with a smokeless cigarette which produced nicotine vapor and that was promptly squashed by the FDA.  No this isn't a time warp, and thankfully, I no longer have a mullet. I came across an interesting document (tip o' the hat to Carl Phillips). The document was a letter giving the parent company of Favor cigarettes 10 days to stop selling their product, or else.

This may sound familiar here in a second. The justification for the demand was exactly the same thing the FDA used to justify its attempted e-cigarette ban in 2009 calling e-cigarettes an unapproved medicine.  Here's the letter in all its typewritten 1980′s glory (Motley Crue cassette not included).
