Nicotine has suddenly found its way into the churn of America's never-ending culture wars. After Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer called for a federal probe into "Zyn" nicotine pouches last week, the GOP backlash was swift. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene called for a "Zynsurrection." Other GOP lawmakers, outing themselves as Zyn users, urged Schumer to "come and take it." Among them was Sen. Thom Tillis of North Carolina, who told Business Insider that he took up the product "four or five years ago" as a safer alternative to the cancer-causing spitless tobacco he once used.
