What products are not considered to be tobacco products as defined by the tobacco control act?

The term "tobacco product" does not apply to raw materials other than tobacco used in manufacturing a component, part, or accessory of a tobacco product. Nor does it mean something that is defined as a drug, device, or combination product under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
