FSC cigarettes
I am hearing a lot of complaints from my friends who smoke cigarettes, bad taste, headaches, sore throat, etc. The cigarette paper is treated with some sort of chemical glue, some say the tobacco is treated as well. Appears the new legislation will stop many from smoking cigarettes.

More and more states are passing fire-safe cigarette legislation (22 to date). The Coalition for Fire-Safe Cigarettes, organized by National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), is calling for manufacturers to produce and market only cigarettes that adhere to an established fire safety performance standard, and is working to see that this standard is required in every state in the country.

A fire-safe cigarette has a reduced propensity to burn when left unattended. The most common fire-safe technology used by cigarette manufacturers is to wrap cigarettes with two or three thin bands of less-porous paper that act as “speed bumps” to slow down a burning cigarette. If a fire-safe cigarette is left unattended, the burning tobacco will reach one of these speed bumps and self-extinguish. There is no evidence that reduced ignition propensity cigarettes are any more harmful to health.

I find a certain irony in this. People are complaining about an item, that if used correctly will kill you in a painful manner having a bad taste or other side effects.

Not sure why this was implemented but it is kind of funny.

Sounds like they need to quit smoking. ;)

I hope they get so bad that people cant stand them. My dad smokes and I hate it.

They need to find some vintage Camels. Then their "T Zone" will feel better, plus they're the doctors' choice.

Fire-safe cigarette...Is that like a handgun with a beeping alarm whenever you point it at someone?
