Is there US support for lowering nicotine in cigarettes?

“Data from the 2018 SummerStyles, a web-based panel survey of U.S. adults aged ≥18 years (n=4,037) fielded in June−July, were analyzed in 2018.

Eighty-one percent of adults in 2018 strongly or somewhat favored requiring cigarette makers to lower the nicotine levels in cigarettes to make them less addictive, including 80.6% of current cigarette smokers, 84.3% of former smokers, and 81.3% of never smokers.

These findings can help inform the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s recent proposal to pursue a nicotine reduction standard for cigarettes.”
