Nicotine-laced lollipops?

Keep your eyes open for a new smoking cessation product - nicotine-laced lollipops. The lollipops are spiked with nicotine and are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. They are available through hundreds of independent druggists who are producing suckers under brand names such as NicoStop and Likatine. Tobacco-control activists are concerned that an addictive drug masked by sweeteners and sold as a lollipop may end up in the hands of children who could end up hooked on nicotine.
