Last week The New York Times reported that the U.S. House of Representatives moved quickly to pass the Senate's tobacco bill and get it to the White House, where President Obama promised to sign it.

The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act would for the first time give the U.S. Food and Drug Administration the authority to regulate tobacco products. What effect will this legislation really have on the use of tobacco products in the United States? Paul Cinciripini, Ph.D., professor and director of the Tobacco Treatment Program in the Department of Behavioral Science at M. D. Anderson, weighs in on the topic.
