Big Tobacco’s After Your Sweet Tooth

Know why you can't buy candy flavored cigarettes? Because it's illegal for tobacco companies to make them! Even so, they use the same Life Saver, Jolly Rancher and Kool-Aid candy flavors in their cigar and e-cigarette products that candy companies use. The flavors little kids love. And they tell us they're not trying to market to children? Yeah, right. Candy flavored tobacco products are poisonous.

Tricks, not treats.

At first glance, it’s hard to tell, isn’t it? Well, that’s no accident. Confusion works in the tobacco companies’ best interest. They WANT you to think products like spit tobacco, e-cigarettes, and flavored cigars are as fun and as harmless as candy bars are to kids. That’s because they are selling fewer and fewer cigarettes and are trying to get you addicted to something else instead. And it’s working. A recent study right here in South Dakota reports that 47% of young adults have tried e-cigarettes. Most of them are people who would never even think of smoking cigarettes. It’s a trick, not a treat. Nicotine in any form is poison and ADDICTIVE! Don’t buy it.
