Cigarette Companies Pushin’ Smokeless Products

Summary: It seems that the indoor smoking ban and anti-tobacco groups have not totally ruined the cigarette and tobacco industry. In fact, statements can be made that the effects have been quite minimal. According to the Associated Press, cigarette companies have diverted their advertising money from cigarettes to smokeless tobacco products. Based on a report done by the Federal Trade Commission, less money has been spent on regular cigarette advertising.
