IPCPR Presents PTC Memo on Pipe Tobacco Blending

As a service to our retailers, IPCPR is pleased to provide the following memo from the Pipe Tobacco Council. The memo addresses recent changes to the treatment of in-store pipe tobacco blending following the May 2018 ruling in the cigar industry’s lawsuit against the FDA. IPCPR encourages those retailers who blend pipe tobacco in store to review PTC’s memo, as well as IPCPR’s previous review of the ruling.

The views in this memo do not constitute specific legal advice or opinions, and is not a substitute for consultation with your legal counsel. Please consult your attorney for legal advice, or contact the Pipe Tobacco Council or Daniel Trope at IPCPR (daniel@ipcpr.org) for additional information.
