Abstract: This Note creates a theoretical framework for understanding commercial speech as a form of hybrid expression. It describes how commercial speech shares some features with expressive conduct and other characteristics with fully regulable “speech†such as exterior product designs. It also discusses how courts have been increasingly treating commercial speech like core First Amendment expression, and how many food and drug regulations have been invalidated in recent years on commercial speech grounds. The Note explores the consequences of this doctrinal shift, and suggests strategies that food and drug regulators can use to immunize themselves from the commercial speech doctrine.
