It is just coming to light that the government has put laws in effect to force tobacco companies to make cigarettes extinguish themselves to help prevent accidental fires. Also know as safe cigarettes -this is in effect now in some states and eventually will be in all states. I first noticed my cigarettes going out all the time first I thought I had knocked the fire off looked everywhere but found nothing then I developed some chest pain & rash...sore throat along with some other symptoms. Anyone can Google safe cigarettes & get much more info on this. They should have told us but no it was done without any notice to unsuspecting smokers. No advertising & no notice this was happening or when . There have been a lot of reported adverse reactions at different web. sites. What a dirty trick. This gives me another very good reason to quit so I won't be contributing to state tax's that rise every time the state wants or needs more money from us.
