    The Feds seem to be taking a close look at how the FDA does "business".

    Just came to post this.

    Dirty bastards.

    From the article,

    As you may recall, Hamburg orchestrated the FDA's drive against all ecigarettes and ejuice products that were not manufactured and marketed by tobacco companies, such as RJ Reynolds. The FDA paid Hamburg $10 million per year to guide and direct their operations. During Hamburg's tenure at the FDA, Brown, controlled millions of dollars of Johnson and Johnson stock. Federal investigators hope to prove that Brown and Hamburg used Hamburg's authority at the FDA to increase Brown's income to $125 million dollars annually by approving Levaquin. Hamburg and her cohort, Robert Califf, were the main authors of the FDA's E-Cigarette Deeming Regulations. Hamburg and Califf were miraculously able to author the 499-page document within just a few months of taking over management of the FDA, despite the agency's huge workload. Califf (the newly appointed FDA director) also runs a multimillion-dollar clinical research center at Duke University that receives more than 60 percent of its funding from pharmaceutical companies, including J&J. J&J are the makers of the FDA approved Nicoderm CQ and Nicorette products. They also make nicotine inhalers and other NRT products. The vaping industry quite literally stood poised to cost J&J billions of dollars in sales.
