The Rest of the Story: Tobacco News Analysis and Commentary: Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids Touts Major Victory: Camel Crush Bold Taken Off the Market

at least our politicians in Congress and at the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids can rest easily, knowing that they are able to take public credit by deceiving people into thinking that this is a public health accomplishment that will reduce tobacco use and save lives, when in reality, the action has absolutely no relevance to public health. We did not witness any upsurge in youth cigarette smoking since Camel Crush Bolds entered the market. And we won’t witness any downsurge in youth smoking now that this product is being taken off the market. Nor is the removal of Camel Crush Bold going to in any way make the cigarette market safer. However, this is exactly what the Campaign is implying in its self-congratulatory propaganda, which suggests that some cigarettes are less harmful than other cigarettes.
