    • 02/07/08 TobaccoMoney.comCitizens for a Healthy Michigan.
        The state of Michigan has not spent a single dollar of the tobacco settlement funds on health care or smoking prevention programs! Instead, the state has spent the money more than $1 billion so far on a variety of programs including computer technology, road construction, prisons, and funding for a rare isotope accelerator. But not a dime on health care or tobacco control! . . A proposal on the November ballot will ask Michigan voters to guarantee that 90 percent of the tobacco funds go to tobacco prevention efforts, research and health care. The Healthy Michigan Amendment requires that the tobacco money be spent on researching cures for tobacco-related illnesses, on educating teens not to smoke, on a prescription drug program for senior citizens, and on medical care for those suffering after a lifetime of smoking.

Virtually everything that is done to grow tobacco leaves can hurt the environment, as well as the people who grow it. What can you do to help?

      • 01/11/12 Omni Cigarettes
          We recently introduced a new brand of cigarettes called Omni. Omni is important because it is the first reduced carcinogen cigarette that tastes, smokes, and burns just like any other premium cigarette. As we all know, smoking is addictive and hazardous to your health. However, the medical community has identified specific carcinogens that are a major cause of lung cancer in smokers. In a groundbreaking move, we have greatly reduced many of these. Let me be perfectly clear - there is no such thing as a safe cigarette, and we do not encourage anyone to smoke. But, we strongly believe that if you do smoke, Omni is the best alternative. While Omni has not been proven to reduce health risks, the significant reduction of carcinogen levels is, in our opinion, a major step in the right direction.

      • 01/08/27 Arents Collection Online at last!
          The Arents Tobacco Collection, the product of over sixty years of collecting by George Arents, is the largest and most comprehensive collection in the world on the history, literature, and lore of tobacco. Over the years, the collection has grown to include books and manuscripts in more than twenty languages. Although the collection is devoted to tobacco and includes almost every important work dealing with the subject, it also contains many historical and literary works in which tobacco receives only incidental mention. Among the fields represented in the collection are American and English literature and medicine. Materials as diverse as rare herbals, government proclamations and edicts from Europe and the Americas, and early records of travel in the New World may be found here. In addition to its comprehensive holdings on the history of tobacco, the Arents Tobacco Collection has a representative collection on the technical aspects of the subject; covered are such topics as "Smoking and Health," "Chemical Composition of Tobacco," "Tobacco Manufacture," and "Tobacco Marketing." The Arents Collection of Books in Parts contains over 1,200 items and is one of the best collections assembled on the principle that the books therein appeared serially in separate numbers and are still in their original state. Books in parts may be defined as works by an author or authors which are published piecemeal over a period of time, each unit having its separate cover.

      • 01/07/27 READER'S DIGEST BREAKS DECADES-LONG POLICY and ACCEPTS TOBACCO COMPANY ADVERTISINGLeslie Bell tracks the doings of Reader's Digest, which, considering its history, is quite interesting.
          Reader's Digest, once the leader in editorial content against smoking and smoking-related diseases, and one of the first national magazines to refuse to accept money from tobacco companies, in a stunning reversal just six months ago started sneaking in tobacco company advertising in their issues from Phillip Morris for the first time in decades. These ads started with print versions of the propaganda running extensively and currently on TV, touting how wonderful Phillip Morris and its people are because of various charity programs, most begun by their current subsidiaries Kraft Foods and Miller Brewing Company, long before these companies were purchased by Phillip Morris solely as a tool to insinuate their advertising dollars into publications and media outlets that refused to deal with Phillip Morris directly. Ironically, most of these ads feature targeted age groups that smoking harms the most, i.e. young people and seniors. To date Reader's Digest has already received many complaints and requests for subscription cancellation due to this new policy

      • 01/07/10 Smokefree Apartment House Registry
          The Registry is being developed in response to the many requests we have received from the public for information about rental units which are free of drifting tobacco smoke. The Smokefree Apartment House Registry is a project of Smokefree Air For Everyone (S.A.F.E.) and Community Partners, Los Angeles. For many years, hotels and motels have offered smokefree accommodations. The demand for "non-smoking rooms" is so great, in fact, that few hotels will guarantee a smokefree room, even when it is urgently requested. Preliminary surveys in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties indicate there is also a strong demand for smokefree accommodations in apartments and condominiums. It is unfortunate that in some buildings, tobacco smoke can drift from one unit into another, or can enter an apartment or condo from halls, stairs, balconies, and patios. Most Californians are aware of the health hazards of secondhand smoke and wish to be protected from it. However, many apartment owners are not aware that they have the choice to designate all or part of an apartment building or complex as smokefree. Smokefree apartments are less costly to maintain and may be cheaper to insure. We offer a free listing on our web site: to apartment owners who have chosen to establish a total or partial smokefree policy in their buildings.

      • 00/08/22 Carol AS Thompson
          Infectious diseases are the leading preventable causes of death in the United States and throughout the world, and always have been. By their obstruction of the truth, the anti-smoking conspirators have caused the needless deaths and suffering of uncounted millions. They have compounded their crimes by persecuting the innocent, and stealing their victims' money to line their own over-privileged pockets, under the pretext of the Big Lie that smoking is an economic burden to society. Morally, the anti-smokers deserve to be prosecuted for crimes against humanity, and hanged like the Nazi war criminals.

            The only tobacco conspiracy that has ever existed is the anti-smoking movement's own. The syndicate created by Mary Lasker, of Lasker Foundation renown, whom the media fawningly portray as lofty-minded benefactors of medical research, are the central perpetrators of a gigantic campaign of conspiracy, fraud, and racketeering against smokers. . . Mary Lasker and her cronies had taken over the American Cancer Society in 1946, and they propagandized the public that "cancer is not an infectious disease."

          Every day, billions of cigarettes are dumped, one at a time, on our sidewalks, beaches, nature trails, gardens, and other public places. In fact, cigarettes are the most littered item in America. Cigarette litter can ruin even the most picturesque setting, but in addition to being unsightly, cigarette litter is damaging to the environment and also the cause of numerous fires every year, some of them fatal. CigaretteLitter.Org is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to significantly reducing the amount of cigarette litter through educational campaigns. Most people who litter their cigarettes don't fully understand the consequences of their actions. This web site and our other educational efforts are designed to get the facts out about cigarette litter to both smokers and non-smokers. Once people know the truth, they will be much more hesitant to unthinkingly flick their cigarette butts on the ground.

          Welcome to the Cigarette Butts as Litter web site. Here, you can learn all about the #1 source of litter on earth! . . NOT JUST UGLY TOXIC TOO Cigarette butts are not just ugly - they also present a threat to wildlife. Cigarette filters have been found in the stomachs of fish, birds, whales and other marine creatures who mistake them for food. Recent studies conducted by Clean Virginia Waterways show that the chemicals in cigarette butts easily leach out of the butts, and are deadly to water fleas (a small but important animal that lives in most freshwater lakes and streams as well as the ocean). Composed of cellulose acetate, a form of plastic, cigarette butts can persist in the environment as long as other forms of plastic.

With the potential for so many comments and different opinions, it becomes important not only to make comments on the documents, but to have a way of considering comments, ones own and other peoples comments as well, so that all views can be taken into account in working towards a more polished international instrument that is both representative of a global consensus and an effective public health measure. This proposal seeks to provide a way to help participants evaluate and keep track of the various concerns and options are raised.

        • 10/11/99 Center for Medical ConsumersBack in the dark old days, long before the Net, when you were told you had some terrible disease, the doctor had all of about 5 minutes to explain to you all about the disease, your case, treatment options, etc. Sure, you could hike off to the library to do a complex and time-consuming search for the latest information. But your best bet, in the New York area, was to go to Art Levin's revolutionary Center, where all the latest news articles were filed and categorized, with knowledgeable help and a cheap copier right nearby.
            Founded in 1976, the Center for Medical Consumers (CMC) is a non-profit advocacy organization active in both statewide and national efforts to improve the quality and availability of health care. The Center is committed to better informed decision-making and maintains a free, publicly accessible medical library at 237 Thompson Street in Greenwich Village. HealthFacts, our monthly newsletter, makes a critical evaluation of the latest studies and medical advice. Our financial support comes entirely from private contributions, newsletter subscriptions, and the generosity of the Judson Memorial Church.

Either way you may email your information to the address at the bottom of this page. We will not guarantee that everything sent will be posted, however, feel free to send anything you want.

C-3PO tells Artoo how bad smoking really is, and that he wouldn't be a good example for others, upon which Artoo rids himself of it, and agrees upon it. Even though the commercial is funny, it has a very sad tone. The commercial is fairly rare, as it is not included on the 57 reel, but since it aired a lot, it shouldn't be too much of a journey to find.

They do everything in their power to entice people into addiction. They cause sickness, disability, and death with their products. They cause tremendous harm and expense to individuals and society. It is immoral and wrong that they continue to enrich themselves by poisoning and killing Canadians. Enough! It is time for action. Plan: We propose that the Canadian federal government take away the business licenses of all tobacco companies and assume responsibility for the production, distribution, and retail of tobacco products. . .

Star Tobacco and Pharmaceuticals was founded in 1990 for the purpose of commercializing improved tobacco products. It has a cigarette production facility in Petersburg, Virginia, capable of supporting $200 million worth of sales per year. The company is the exclusive worldwide licensee for an additive-free, novel curing process used to prepare tobacco for prescription cigarettes (CigRx). These cigarettes feature a complete absence of tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNA).

                  In order to understand Star's revolutionary tobacco technology, it is helpful to have a better understanding about regular tobacco. At the risk of oversimplification, the following points should be remembered: 1) Nicotine, while addictive, is not a carcinogen. (Carcinogens are cancer-producing materials). 2) Nicotine in moderation does not seem to be harmful. In fact, it may have beneficial effects such as enhancing short-term memory. 3) In addition to nicotine, regular tobacco contains a naturally-occurring mood elevator, a so-called monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor. This ``anti-depressant" may be as important as nicotine, if not more so, for consumer satisfaction. 4) The only medically significant carcinogens in regular tobacco are a special group of nitrosamines (tobacco-specific nitrosamine; TSNA). These chemicals produce lung cancer, esophageal and bladder cancer. 5) Burning tobacco (smoking) produces other known carcinogens such as benzo[a]pyrenes. Benzo[a]pyrene is known to be carcinogenic, albeit much weaker than TSNA's. Generally speaking, these ``gas phase" carcinogens can be significantly reduced with filter technology.

              Fanning the flames of these scandals have been Media Moguls, who have used their networks to force-feed the public a daily diet of wall-to-wall Clinton scandal coverage. One of these Moguls is RUPERT MURDOCH, the head of a huge Multi-Media Network which includes TV Guide, the New York Post and the FOX Network. In addition, Murdoch sits on the board of directors of PHILIP MORRIS, a tobacco conglomerate. Murdoch also sits on the board of trustees of THE CATO INSTITUTE, an organization that is funded by RICHARD MELLON SCAIFE. Indeed, it is through the Cato Institute that the powers of Richard Mellon Scaife, Rupert Murdoch, and the Big Tobacco companies are most obviously connected, since all three of these parties contribute funds to CATO. It should come as no surprise then, that Cato has provided aggressive legal advocacy for the Tobacco Industry in it's fight against the government. Given that there is ample evidence that Scaife may have laundered funds through the American Spectator, it follows logically that there may also be evidence, yet unearthed, that CATO is a vehicle by which the money of these three entities has been pooled and diverted towards backing nefarious activities. One of the most obvious conflicts of interest is that KEN STARR is a former tobacco attorney, whose appointment was allegedly spearheaded by North Carolina Senators JESSE HELMS and LAUCH FAIRCLOTH

The long-term mission of global tobacco control, which will take several decades to achieve, is to reduce smoking prevalence and tobacco consumption in all countries and among all groups, and thereby reduce the burden of disease caused by tobacco.

          For thousands of years the original peoples of this land have cherished tobacco as the most sacred of all gifts given by the Creator, it is holy, it sanctifies life and keeps everything in balance. Here we are at the end of the 20th century and both Native American and mainstream populations are suffering in various degrees, from nicotine addiction. What happened? It's all about the nature of one's relationship to this world and to life itself. There is very little that is, in and of itself, harmful, it is only how we choose to interact and relate with it that makes it so. It is precisely the critical importance of being in the 'right relationship' with all of life and how that relationship is expressed in the social, cultural and ceremonial life of Native Americans, that this documentary will explore.

      • 09/28/98 CIGARS...One Of The Great Pleasures Of Life! Semi-incoherent riff--with some nuggets--on history of tobacco from a would-be online mag looking for cigar advertisers
          When Christopher Columbus discovered America, he encountered one particular group of primitive people, the Tainos, bossing around all the rest of the native population, that is, the very peaceful Siboneyan guys. All of them, however, were using a weird kind of tobacco. . . . The tobacco (TABACO) name is derived from an American Indian word applied both to a tube for inhaling the smoke and to a cylinder of leaf prepared for smoking. The word "cigar" is suspected to come from Mayan "sikar", to smoke, where "sik" stands for "tobacco" and "ar" suggests "large or dark". No wonder some people feel "sik" after smoking very large, dark cigars!!! -Very interesting...but stupid!

Witches strive to respect the magickal arts, as well as the lives of others. A good cry, followed by a ritual cleansing bath and a spell having to do with one's own self-esteem -- as opposed to any sort of spell to manipulate the other person -- would be the most likely course of action.

            While the Thai Tobacco Monopoly (TTM) was the sole producer of tobacco products in Thailand only cigarette brands with high nicotine and tar levels were produced. It is speculated that this, coupled with no advertising or marketing directed at women, greatly contributed to the low smoking rates amongst Thai women. Since the opening of the market many cigarette brands which target women have entered the market, with Virginia Slims leading the pack.
        • Social Indicators
            Education levels amongst Thai smokers are very low. Few have gone beyond the compulsary seven years of schooling. Female smokers are particularly likely to have no formal education at all.

          Those papers offer up insights on more than just the profession of public relations, however. They also provide illuminating and sometimes disturbing background on some of the most interesting episodes of 20th Century history, from the way American tobacco tycoons made it socially acceptable for women to smoke, to the way other titans of industry convinced us to pave over our landscape and switch to beer as the "beverage of moderation." The companies involved aren't likely to release their records of those campaigns, assuming they still exist. But Bernays saved each scrap of paper he sent out or took in, and provided for them to be made public on his death. In so doing, he let us see just how those policies were made and how, in many cases, they were founded on deception.

He's gone through D.A.R.E. and listened to the lectures of his parents and teachers. However, he thinks they are all just handing him a line. After all, he sees lots of adults smoking and figures it isn't really so bad. In fact, he thinks it's pretty cool. But he might listen to you. After all, you're his peer. That's what his parents are counting on. They've hired you to convince him to quit smoking. To do so, you must show your commitment to the fight against youth using tobacco and create a memorable message for him. Do a good job - it could be a matter of life and death.

Although the case, which hinges on proof of tobaccos health hazard, has been upheld at various stages, the leading lawyer for the plaintiff, Professor Erkki Aurejrvi explained that the appeals process will continue for the next three years.

They invented a new branch of science: junk science. They commissioned "research." They collected "data." They reached "findings." Obfuscation of the highest order. . . . Given tobacco's success, no wonder so many anti-environmentalists decided to major in junk science. . .

The American Lung Association, in collaboration with West Virginia University, developed N-O-T. The program was evaluated during two pilot phases, which led to revisions tailored to suit the needs of schools and teens. Evaluations are continuing around the country. N-O-T was designed specifically for teens, using a gender-sensitive, 10-session curriculum that includes booster sessions. Teachers, school nurses, counselors and other staff and volunteers trained by the American Lung Association facilitate the sessions in the schools and other community settings. N-O-T is designed as a voluntary, non-punitive program for teens. An Alternative-to-Suspension program is also included to address student violation of a school tobacco policy.

I am a physician and thoracic (chest) surgeon with almost 30 years of experience treating patients with tobacco related diseases including lung cancer, bronchitis and emphysema, coronary artery disease (heart attack), carotid vascular disease (stroke or CVA) and many other diseases. This page is an outgrowth of my experience with The Lung Cancer and Cigarette Smoking Web Page . . . Through the E-mail and form feedback features of that page, have come hundreds of inquiries from young people for information on tobacco and tobacco-caused diseases. 27% of requests for help or information have come from people age 21 and under. Most questions relate to help in gathering information for the preparation of school reports, requests for information on smoking cessation or concerns about their own health or the health of family and friends. An abstract of my experience with the Lung Cancer and Cigarette Smoking Web Page presented to the World Congress on Lung Cancer in Dublin Ireland is offered here. Attempts to direct these young people to sources of information available on the Internet and World Wide Web, that would help answer their questions and needs, have been frustrating. Searches of the WWW for information on tobacco yield a wealth of great information from hundreds of different web sites. There is, however, an appreciable dearth of information available on the WWW, and in general, on tobacco and tobacco-caused disease, that is age-specific and appropriate for young people.

              • 00/09/15 9th World Conference on Lung Cancer--Tokyo, 2000 IASLC's Declaration on Tobacco is not available online:
                  Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the world. The incidence is rising at an alarming rate in both men and women. Ninety percent of cases are caused by active or passive smoking and therefore could be avoided or prevented. Smoking is a major factor in the development of many other cancers, cardiovascular disease and chronic lung disease. As a consequence of smoking, nicotine addiction in our children is a major worldwide epidemic requiring immediate action. In order to help achieve its goal of eliminating lung cancer, the IASLC: 1. Requests governments to: 1) Develop new methods of preventing smoking, and therefore nicotine addiction, in children. 2) Forbid smoking in all public facilities and transportation systems to protect non-smokers from the effects of passive smoking. 3) Through governmental and public notifications and advertising, warn of the ill effects of smoking on health. 4) Increase taxes on tobacco in order to prevent its use. 5) Enforce higher copayments by smokers for the cost of treatment of smoking related diseases. 6) Requests introduction of anti-smoking education at all levels of education. 2. Encourages other medical societies and health care institutions to join in campaigns against smoking and for anti-smoking education. 3. Encourages all health care providers to receive training in counseling on stopping smoking. 4. Requests all industrial sectors and media organs to eliminate tobacco advertising and marketing. 5. Promises to produce materials that will aid in education concerning smoking and lung cancer.

                  Thank you for the opportunity to help you become smoke-free. Often when people, such as yourself, come to my office for the first time, a considerable portion of the time we have arranged to spend together is spent asking and answering questions. On the one hand, that is quite understandable and responsible. Were I to seek the assistance of a professional, I too, would have many questions. Unfortunately, the process of asking and answering questions is a time consuming one - one that will reduce, perhaps significantly, the amount of time available for us to engage in the work we have set out to do - help you become smoke-free. With that in mind, and in the interest of utilizing the time we have together as efficiently and effectively as possible, I have, on the pages high-lighted below, assembled a variety of information that you can review before we meet. I expect that most, if not all, of your concerns will be addressed. Should you have additional questions or feel a need for clarification of any of the information I have provided, I would appreciate the opportunity to respond to your concerns either when we meet or via email.

              • 02/01/16 Nicstik (Canada)
                  The original idea for nicotine replacement products came from the tobacco pickers in the 1900's. It was noted that the pickers who were not protected by long gloves were developing toxicity from the plants. When the wrist was exposed the plant extracts were absorbed through the skin into the blood stream. The concept for all nicotine replacement products is to give the brain an amount of the drug so the patient will be able to resist the strong urge to light up. Cigarettes contain many other chemicals and it is much better for them to be exposed to a small amount of nicotine only. The nicotine receptor in the brain is very sensitive and many smokers develop a habit where it has to be satisfied every 2 to 3 hrs. If not they get severe nicotine "stress" and are not able to concentrate on the necessary tasks of life. However more smokers are giving up their habit due to strong pressure from the health groups and the anti-smoking movements that have proved second hand smoke is a carcinogen. We are able to help our patients by giving them a small amount of nicotine as they use other programs to help overcome their addiction. The Nicstick allows our patients to control the amount of drug they need when they need it.

                  There are new medications that can help you quit smoking. By themselves, they work. But smoking cessation experts, and smokers themselves, know that quitting requires more than dealing with the physical cravings alone. You need to deal with the psychological aspects of your smoking habit, and this requires changing your behavior. . . Experts agree, however, that the most effective behavioral support program is one designed just for you, and used in conjunction with a stop smoking aid, such as Nicorette or NicoDerm CQ. In fact, clinical studies prove that the Committed Quitters Program can improve your chances of quitting by more than 25%, versus the use of nicotine therapy replacement alone. Please take a few minutes to explore this site, which offers a comprehensive guide for all smokers. No matter where you are in the quitting process, there is something here for you. Even if you have no interest in quitting, we can help you understand your smoking habit, and how it compares to other smokers. But if you are interested in quitting, we can really help you. From understanding nicotine addiction and the range of quitting options available, to dealing with high risk situations once you have quit, you will find it here! Your chances of quitting can improve when used with a counselling program.

Concerned that scientific societies separately would lack the resources and expertise to lead a major technical infrastructure shift in publications, Stanford University, in founding HighWire, accepted the role of partner, agent of change, and advisor. Begun as a close collaboration of scientists, librarians and publishers, it has not strayed from that model in its six years of rapid growth. Under the guidance of its publishing partners, HighWire's approach to online publishing of scholarly journals is not simply to mount electronic images of printed pages; rather, by adding links among authors, articles and citations, advanced searching capabilities, high-resolution images and multimedia, and interactivity, the electronic versions provide added dimensions to the information provided in the printed journals.

    You can search on tobacco or smoking and find, for example, the original 1988 reviews of Larry C. White's Merchants of Death from Christopher Lehman-Haupt Yet, as Mr. White aptly concludes, the cigarette companies continue to spread throughout the American economy like "a cancer that has metastasized." We may have come a long way from the time when we romanticized Bogart and Bacall for wrapping each other up in wreaths of smoke. But apparently we haven't come quite far enough yet, baby
    or from Kit Konolige In his short, blunt book . . . White makes us feel fresh outrage over the vicious cynicism of the executives of the cigarette industry who profit handsomely while promoting a bogus debate over the deadliness of tobacco.

"If that is the case," Johnston observes, "then there is a real question about whether teen smoking will continue to decline in the absence of an intense public debate."

For each of the 24 billion packs of cigarettes sold in the United States in 1993, about $2.00 was spent on avoidable medical care costs due to smoking.

        In 1941, the Burley Tobacco Growers Cooperative began with the aim to help tobacco farmers receive fair prices, develop a stronger voice, and maintain a better way of life for all burley producers. We still work hard to accomplish these goals today. Our members are "any persons, firms or corporations that own land to which a Burley Tobacco Quota is assigned and any tenant or lessee of such land." We are a cooperative - we are owned and managed by the growers who make up its membership. Before 1941, farmers were basically left to fend for themselves against the tobacco companies for fair prices. Growers received pennies a pound for their hard labor crop. Times were tough and prices were unfair. However, concerned citizens saw the plight of the burley tobacco farmer and led the way to a new organization that would change the U.S. tobacco industry. The Burley Tobacco Growers Cooperative Association of Lexington, Kentucky was the first to fight for fair prices for burley producers of Kentucky, Indiana, Missouri, Ohio, and West Virginia. Today, we still serve the burley producer by maintaining the price support program and representing producer concerns.

    • 12/22/96 Smoke and Illusion A fresh if idiosyncratic look at the tobacco situation-- from considering pesticides and manufacturing processes as the basis of cigarettes' health effects, to using tobacco to produce ethanol. Another example of tobacco contemplation as an emergent (and surprisingly personal) art form. This site is dedicated to the idea that it may not be tobacco which is the cause of much, or most smoking-related disease and death. The role of chronic sublethal exposure to cigarette pesticides, the use of contaminated paper industry waste materials, the presence of hazardous solvent residues, the use of foreign tobacco wastes, and many other new avenues of evidence are explored. We suggest new product liability strategies for cigarette victims and their families, new routes to more effective community-level regulation, and new reasons for young people to understand the importance of not smoking cigarettes and using other so-called tobacco products. We also propose some interesting, maybe startling new uses for tobacco - including one that was awarded the 1993 Energy-Related Social Invention of the Year in the UK

A must. From the preface: It is a curious fact that while the Whites took the material tobacco from the Indians they took with it no fragment of the world that accompanied it, nor were they at first aware that there was such a world. After all of the generations that have elapsed since its introduction among the Whites, it has woven itself scarcely at all into their psychology and mythology. Nicotine is enshrined among the Whites only as a drug, as a taste, as a habit, along with the seeking after mild and tasty forms, while the Native peoples make tobacco a heritage from the gods, a strange path which juts from there into this world and leads to the very ends of magic. -- Clyde Kluckholn, 1908

Loews is seeking shareholder approval for the tracking stock at a January 4, 2001 special meeting of shareholders. If approved, Loews would issue the tracking stock through a public offering representing a minority interest in the economic performance of Lorillard, Loews' tobacco subsidiary. "The tracking stock proposal amounts to a clear admission by management that Loews' structure as a conglomerate has obscured the full value of Loews' highly profitable Lorillard tobacco subsidiary," said Matthew Walker, HERE General Vice President. "However, rather than spinning-off Lorillard to shareholders and allowing shareholders to realize the full value of the tobacco asset, our company has proposed a financial gimmick that doesn't maximize value for shareholders" Walker said.

          We recently introduced a new brand of cigarettes called Omni. Omni is important because it is the first reduced carcinogen cigarette that tastes, smokes, and burns just like any other premium cigarette. As we all know, smoking is addictive and hazardous to your health. However, the medical community has identified specific carcinogens that are a major cause of lung cancer in smokers. In a groundbreaking move, we have greatly reduced many of these. Let me be perfectly clear - there is no such thing as a safe cigarette, and we do not encourage anyone to smoke. But, we strongly believe that if you do smoke, Omni is the best alternative. While Omni has not been proven to reduce health risks, the significant reduction of carcinogen levels is, in our opinion, a major step in the right direction.

        The Atmosphere Improves Results (AIR) initiative was launched in 1997 to identify and popularise good practice in the care of smoking and non-smoking customers. "Since 1997, the hospitality industry has made a considerable effort to make venues less smoky and as a result, the industry welcomed the publication of the White Paper on Tobacco Control by the Government in December 1998. Instead of imposing a ban on smoking in public places, the White Paper recognised that the hospitality industry could and would regulate itself voluntarily. Properly signed non-smoking areas, well-planned ventilation and air cleaning are the tools for self regulation. Managed effectively, they will help the trade get rid of the smoke but keep the smokers. The associations listed on this page have published detailed guidelines based on the Charter which should ensure that smokers and non-smokers continue to enjoy a cleaner atmosphere without the need for further regulation. The aim of this website, and indeed our aim in supporting the AIR initiative, is to help make simple, practical and cost effective solutions available to all to allow our customers, smokers and non-smokers alike, to continue to drink and eat together in harmony, and for our staff to enjoy cleaner air.

        • The National Smokers Alliance was reportedly the brainchild of Philip Morris and B-M. In 1994, National Journal writer Peter Stone observed NSA "is increasingly looking like a subsidiary of Burson-Marsteller," and noted the PR firm "used its grassroots lobbying unit, the Advocacy Communications Team, to start building membership in the group last year." Thomas Humber, a Burson-Marsteller vice-president, is president and CEO of the NSA. Burson executives Kenneth Rietz and Pierre Salinger are active, as is Peter G. Kelly, a prominent Democrat with the firm of Black, Manafort, Stone & Kelly, which is owned by Burson-Marsteller. --from Smokin' by John Stauber and Sheldon Rampton.

        • The Role of the Public Relations Professional By Harold Burson Chairman, Burson-Marsteller "The second role which the public relations person must fulfill is that of corporate conscience. I trust you will not infer from this that a person must be a public relations professional to be sensitive or that public relations people behave in ways that are either more moral and ethical or more in the public interest than executives with different titles. There are others in the corporate hierarchy who may possess the same amount or even more of these attributes than the individuals responsible for public relations. But the fact is that being the professional corporate conscience is not part of the job description of other executives. It is part of the job description of the chief public relations officer."

Tobacco was a primary cash crop for farmers south to north in the United States. This labor intensive process was usually carried out by the entire family and neighbors, young and old working together side by side. They harvested and processed the tobacco for curing and marketing. This practice was discontinued in the late 1950's when modern farming methods took over.

          Tobacco cards represent the first real high point in the history of baseball cards. It is here that the modern baseball card took form. T-206 was the first truly popular set issued in the twentieth century and the first to employ color. T-3, T-201 and T-202 set production standards that weren't equaled until the 1950's. But tobacco cards, while not entirely born of necessity, had a purpose: they stiffened the cigarette pack and promoted various brands of coffin nails while providing a picture of most of the players in the game. They also present a serious challenge to the type set collector.

      • 12/12/98 Do you need help in finding the weaknesses in legal arguments based on statistics? Abbey Management Services
          An example of my work in this field can be found here. Arising out of RJR-MacDonald Inc. vs. Attorney General of Canada and Imperial Tobacco Ltd. vs. Attorney General of Canada, in which I gave statistical advice to the tobacco companies' legal team, I was commissioned by the Confederation of European Community Cigarette Manufacturers to write a critique of the much quoted New Zealand Toxic Substances Board report Health or Tobacco: An End to Tobacco Advertising and Promotion. Actually the critique was of the paper subsequently published in a learned journal by the same authors. The critique itself was also published (as Stewart, M J, 1992, Tobacco Consumption and Advertising Restrictions: A Critique of Laugesen and Meads (1991). International Journal of Advertising, 11, 97-115. [50 kbytes]). Following this I was commissioned to carry out some original statistical analysis - basically to do properly what the New Zealand team had done in an incredibly slipshod, if not fraudulent, manner. This showed that the six countries which had introduced tobacco advertising bans by 1990 had, if anything, increased their tobacco consumption over what would have been expected. This work was also published, (as Stewart, M J, 1993, The effect of advertising bans on tobacco consumption in OECD countries. International Journal of Advertising, 12, 155- 180. [47 kbytes]). If you need a statistical argument 'taking apart', especially if in the fields of advertising, marketing, opinion polls, market research surveys, and public policy, please get in touch with me, Michael Stewart, principal of Abbey Management Services.

        Something is very rotten in American politics when nearly every candidate for office is dependent on a tiny, economic elite to mount their campaigns, when candidates are judged first and foremost by how much money they can raise, and when lawmakers tilt public policy toward those who finance their campaigns. What can be done to reduce special interest influence, end the money chase that diverts lawmakers' precious time and attention, and make it possible for candidates to run for office without having to sell themselves to the highest bidders? These are the fundamental problems that must be addressed by any serious reform of our campaign system.

We believe that collectively they comprise a valuable chronicle of an historic episode in tobacco control - illustrating both the intensity and the character of the debate and its coverage in the media.

Each member was assigned a "pro-consumer" score based upon the number of times the member voted against the Big Tobacco position. We then analyzed campaign contributions from the tobacco industry's political action committees (PACs) and the relationship between these contributions and members' votes.

Here they've assembled a list of tobacco and vending machine companies you can send a card to for $2.95 each printed/stamped/sent letter. Last June, the Philip Morris tobacco company announced that it would penalize retailers convicted of selling cigarettes to minors. But after the company declined to act against 17 Minnesota stores caught selling to under-age buyers, Minnesota attorney general Hubert Humphrey III charged that the firm's "Action Against Access" campaign was an empty promise made with no real plans for implementation.
      Philip Morris attorneys replied that they will, indeed, take action, but only when they have verifiable reports from the state. Contact Philip Morris or other tobacco companies to give your feedback or ask for information.

Billy Yeargin, a tobacco historian, has the knowledge to bring this great history to life. His ability to mix facts about tobacco history and other native agricultural products with humorous, often personal anecdotes makes him one of the most sought-after classroom, seminar and after dinner speakers on this subject.

          This site is devoted to some forms of advertising that are generally (but inappropriately) known as subliminal advertising. The ads that are illustrated and discussed can all be summed up under the phrase manipulative advertising. The 'subliminal' adverts are unethical and can be considered to breach professional guidelines. In some countries (not the US nor the UK) they may also be illegal. . . Smokers and potential smokers in the UK and US A, in particular, are recommended to give careful consideration to the activities of ad agencies responsible for cigarette advertising. Cigarette ads constitute a disproportionate amount of the semi-subliminal ads. Concerned individuals should also consider the impact of such ads on young children, who may be more perceptive than the average adult where the 'recognition' of embedded elements in ads are concerned.

          is a pilot program that teaches fourth- through sixth-grade students how art, design, and advertising particularly tobacco advertising convey persuasive messages that can influence emotions and actions. This art-education initiative was created by The WolfsonianFlorida International University, and was funded by the State of Florida, Division of Health, Awareness and Tobacco. . . Students learn about the ways in which art communicates ideas, and they apply that knowledge to analyze the persuasive tactics used in advertisements. Knowledge is power, and once students learn to recognize propaganda as such, we believe they will be less susceptible to it. Artful Truth empowers students: It teaches them to recognize when they are being manipulated, it gives them a voice, and it encourages them to become advocates of their beliefs. Artful Truth provides several learning resources for instructor and student use, as well as numerous opportunities for student expression.

          Joshua Pusey, a Philadelphia lawyer and patent attorney, is credited with the first matchbook in 1889. With matches, made originally for his personal use, this Philadelphia lawyer parleyed the patent rights to Diamond Match Co. for $4,000 in 1896. Pusey probably cut the first matchbook from a cardboard-like material with a pair of of5ce shears. On a small wood stove, he boiled up the original volatile formula for the match head and striking surface mixture. . . With life breathed back into the match industry through the need for popular patriotic and military advertising, the O.P.A. (Office of Price Administration) insisted that a free book of matches accompany every pack of cigarettes. Free matchbooks became a mainstay. They were so much a part of every cigarette purchase, that the O.P.A. saw this practice as mandatory and regulations ensured continued free matchbooks with cigarette and cigar purchases.

Leslie also started SLAM!Records, a record label devoted to targeting industries or organizations which hurt humanity, and SLAM!ing them with the healing power of music.

      • 12/31/98 Tobacco: Behind the Smoke and Mirrors Visual Mentor's mission is "to develop a highly visual k-12 curriculum, that combines advanced computer graphics and visual effects with dramatic story lines."
          The tobacco industry has succeeded where many health education programs have failed because they capitalize on the deep social needs that most compel adolescents: to fit in, to exert independence from parental control, and to demonstrate physical agility and sexual allure. These motivational techniques are mirrored in Tobacco: Behind the Smoke and Mirrors. However, in a strategy of reversal, we will show not how smoking makes a teen "belong," but how it induces social scorn and ostracization; not how smoking liberates adolescents from adult control, but how it makes them dependent customers of tobacco companies; not how smoking enhances their physical and sexual identity, but instead takes a toll on their prowess and looks right now, not in some conjectured future as an adult.
