The ultimate smokers warning
Is the Marlboro Man getting his walking papers? It seems that way, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC], which reports that Philip Morris has announced that they’ll stop selling cigarettes in the U.K. It won’t happen for ten years, according to CEO Jacek Olczak who said it’s part of Britain’s effort to put an end to “traditional” cigarette smoking. Philip Morris brands have been available to smokers there for a hundred years. It marks the end of an era and yet another blow for smokers and cigarette producers. And, as one wag put it, Sir Walter Raleigh must be rolling over in his grave. You remember him. He’s the guy who brought tobacco to England in the first place, in 1586, to be precise.
