4A's smoldering over FDA tobacco regs

Published on .

The American Association of Advertising Agencies accused the Food & Drug Administration of a ``shocking'' use of political expediency rather than the Constitution and objective analysis to draft restrictions on tobacco advertising. In comments filed last week, Four A's accused the FDA of ``unsubstantiated conjecture'' and simplistic analysis. In suggesting tobacco outdoor boards have to be 1,000 feet from a school, Four A's said, the FDA ignored the fact the 1,000-foot limit would eliminate tobacco outdoor boards.
