  7. 7. Morgan Stanley on FDA deeming regulations The greater barriers to entry (slower approval process, higher costs, higher product standards), will ultimately take a toll on the number of available products and rationalize the category. This could result in the larger tobacco companies dominating the category in the future, given the burden it would place on smaller manufacturers.

  11. 11. Science: five orientating propositions • Relative risk: at least 95% less harmful than smoking, probably lower, may be negligible risk. • Bystanders: no material health risk, possible nuisance • Adolescents: use rising with adults, vast majority of users are smokers, may be displacing smoking • Smoking cessation: combines appeal and effectiveness and improving over time – limited studies show at least as good as pharma nicotine already. • Promoting smoking: no sign of gateway effects or renormalising smoking.
