Smoker or non smoker, we all agree that there's plenty of damning evidence that these big corporations haven't had the public's best interests in mind, only their own pockets.
...the newest smoke-free tobacco products — dissolvable pellets or strips that don't require users to chew or even spit. Sold in shiny plastic cases, the products melt in your mouth like breath mints.
R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company is test-marketing dissolvable products in three cities and says they are designed for adults.
Some lawmakers disagree. They call the products tobacco candy and say they are designed with one thing in mind: to get kids hooked on nicotine. They want to give the government power to restrict sales
Between citywide smoking bans and skyrocketing cigarette taxes, fewer people are puffing tobacco. In an effort to outsmart these measures, smoking manufacturers are seeking new ways to hook consumers on nicotine.
For smokers who can no longer light up in public (and are too civilized to use chaw at bars), R.J. Reynolds is introducing a line of smokeless tobacco products. Maybe you'd enjoy the "Camel Orb," a tobacco pellet, or the "Camel Stick," a twisted tobacco-y toothpick. Finally, there's the "Camel Strip," a dissolving tobacco film. The products will be available in a variety of flavors and contain anywhere from around one-half to three times the nicotine delivered by a cigarette.
But Merkley and other critics said the packaging makes some of the products look like cell phones, while others look like breath mints. Words like "mellow" and "fresh" are prominently displayed.

I am not too worried about this product myself.

wasnt there studies done on the effect of taking nicotine as a suppliment, and it was found out that it was actually quite dangerous, and caused the body problems?
