Jean, bizarre arguments they were.
To show that the FDA has jurisdiction over tobacco products, the U-S Solicitor General had to argue that they have beneficial effects: calming, stimulating, or satisfying a smoker's craving.
On the flip side, tobacco company lawyers had to argue that their products are SO dangerous, if the FDA regulated them at all, it would have to ban them completely.
That, they say, is clearly NOT the intent of Congress.

((There are more than 26 hundred private investigators like Boyd Vanhorn in Virginia. His biggest clients are insurance companies who suspect people, like the subject of this survailence video, of fraudulent disability claims.

Unfortunatly, just like on TV, Vanhorn does get his share of cheating spouse cases.
((27:35.13 We don't consider them...peace of mind we try to provide 27:49.13 (14)))
Technology is becoming an increasingly large part of Vanhorn's business. This video from a sting operation was shot using two wireless cameras, each the size of a quarter installed in ordinary clock radios.
((T2-4:06.25 I assure you...will not find it 4:13.09 (6)))
Who is doing the watching? Primarily people concerned with the care being given to their children or elderly parents while they are away.
Before you head out with a conceled camera remember that in many cases survailence can only be done by a licensed investigator. If one will take the case, you can expect to pay about 15 hundred dollars for a 3 day survailence including video and a complete report.
Vanhorn enjoys using all of the technology available to him.
((T2-7:12.15 There's so many...without his hammer 7:22.22 (10)))
But he adds that there isn't a gadget in the world that can make you a good PI.
