New Tobacco Products

In National News on December 26, 2008 at 9:14 am

RJ Reynolds has introduced several new products this fall to retain tobacco consumers in the face of increasing opposition to smoking. Since more and more state and cities are banning smoking in public places, the smokeless snustobacco products provide a replacement for smokers. The problem is, these products also contain carcinogins. The exact contents and consequences of these products are still not fully known.

Snus is a pasturized tobacco product in a small tea bag-like pouch that users can place between the cheek and gum to get nicotine without spitting. Other dissolvable tobacco products include a pellet (Camel Orbs), a toothpick-like stick (Camel Sticks), and a dissolvable film strip (Camel Strips).
