Let's see. They have been working on this project for 15 years - that takes us back to 1993. Did any thing else happen that year, that was important to the tobacco movement?

May 23, 2008 -- The quit-smoking drug Chantix is being grounded for pilots and air traffic controllers, and Chantix use may be reason for medical examiners to disqualify interstate truckers and bus drivers.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) ruled on Wednesday that "Chantix was no longer acceptable for use by pilots and controllers," FAA spokesperson Les Dorr tells WebMD. And the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration -- the branch of the U.S. Department of Transportation that oversees trucking and busing -- has told medical advisors that Chantix use could put the brakes on an interstate truck or bus driver's medical fitness for duty.

The FDA has been analyzing reported adverse events -- including suicidal thoughts and suicidal behavior -- in Chantix users since late last year.
