Reynolds targets quitters marketing Camel Snus

R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. has launched a national campaign marketing Camel Snus as a potential New Year’s resolution solution for smokers.

On smoking and driving

It should have been easy to see that driving under the influence was going to come up when voters gave the thumbs up to medical smoking drivingmarijuana in Michigan. Marijuana is an intoxicant that has some effects similar to alcohol and opiates. It would seem to be a good thing for medical marijuana patients to not drive while under the influence of the medication. That’s a matter of public safety, and not just because police have been reported to lay in wait near compassion centers where marijuana smoking takes place in order to arrest drivers suspected of intoxication. Other patients have been charged with DUI after having been stopped for other traffic violations and divulging that they were medical marijuana patients.
