    Wouldn't mind their job. Getting paid to spend most of the day watching a pipe maker at work.

    I think this is the most pertinent paragraph to give you the gist of the article

    "You may find it odd that the FDA chooses not to regulate lighters, matches, ashtrays, humidors and the like, but it has its reason. It deems such things to be accessories, not components and parts. Accessories, the FDA says, “do not contain tobacco, are not derived from tobacco, and do not affect or alter the performance, composition, constituents, or characteristics of a tobacco product.” Since pipes do those things, they are deemed regulated components rather than unregulated accessories."
