POPAI requests new look at self-serve tobacco

Published on .

The Point of Purchase Advertising Institute, one of several groups that successfully challenged Food & Drug Administration tobacco ad restrictions, filed a petition asking a North Carolina judge to rehear a section of his decision banning self-service tobacco displays. The group said the judge mistakenly considered eliminating self-service displays to be an allowable access restriction when in truth it represents a restriction on advertising, which would be barred by the judge's ruling. POPAI said the ruling would cost it $250 million a year in business.
