Print and Distribute this card


Are your cigarettes going out?
Are you coughing and feeling sick?

There is a reason for this. You are smoking Fire Safe Cigarettes (FSC) that are not safe at all, not safe for your health or your home!
Join the movement to repeal fire safe laws today!

David, Thanks for the card Info, I will make a bunch of business card size cards and hand them out.

Well done! This is concise and to the point. I think it might even be a good idea to make sure this can be fit into, say, a 3x5 grid on an 8.5x11 page, so we can easily mass produce these and hand them out.

Keep up the good work...from a cigar smoker who doesn't want to be next.

Dave;

Have you read the Harvard study?

It identifies Philip Morris as being cooperative in the study. Guess who ownes the patent on the ultra-thin paper used to make the speed bumps?

The study uses a five-month observation of NY smokers for its data. They observed no significant changes in sales in NY during that period. From this they concluded that smokers had no preference between the regular and test cigarettes.

The problem is that the five month observation period occurred during the six month transition period between the regular smokes and the FSCs. They don't know what percentage, if any, of the cigarettes purchased by NYers during that period were FSC.

Have you read Michael Watkin's tetimony? He was Philip Morris' lead researcher on the effectiveness of the "speedbump" paper. He was fired for not burying a report that showed that cigarettes using the new speed-bump paper were 7 times more likely to drop a hot ash.

Do you know why the other manufacturers are climbing on board even though they have to pay Philip Morris to use the ultra-thin paper?

Do you know who is financing campaigns in the remaining states to enact similar, if not uniform, legislation?

Did you know that although the average increase in napthalene for all the FSCs tested was 14%, the napthalene in Newports increased 22%?

Did you know that African Americans are biologically more susceptible to naphthalene poisoning?

Has anybody done any research into the possible increase in adverse impact on second-hand smokers?

What does that "stack of books" Sen. Waxman liked to point to have to say about an 11% increase in Carbon Monoxide being breathed on second-handers?

I'm all for the 'Saving Lives From House Fires' campaign in which the FSC cigarette is presented as, BUT, the cigarette paper that is making me sick is not what is listed in the patent owned by PM nor the specifications of the FSC cigarette that all of this new legislation has brought about in nearly every state in the US. The specifications call for two minute bands on the tube of the cigarette, when with even casual inspection by holding an emptied tube up to a window after splicing it lengthwise, you can see that the 'bands' are actually an inch to two inches wide (likely due to overspray when the chemical is applied to the paper) with the then stated heavier 'bands' on either end of the two inch wide BAND OF CHEMICALS.... IT IS NOT the specified 'minute' bands bantered about in that Harvard Study. I reviewed the patent online for the material the manufacturer Philip Morris is using in this 'band' (they are claiming the ~secret recipe~ of non-disclosure such as does McDonalds for their ~special sauce~) and the chemical base that is applied to the cigarette paper when smoked creates the equivalent affect of 'sniffing glue', rather we are smoking it more regularly and it is heated and flamed as it is inhaled. It is my understanding that 'sniffing glue' kills brain cells. What then is the reasoning behind 'killing smokers faster' which doesn't seem to matter to many since they seem to feel we are simply killing ourselves by smoking in the first place, so they sit back and make an exorbitant amount of additional money in the short term since the goal is to hasten our life expectancy, it would appear. From what I read about the legislation in all the states, it appears that perhaps MICHIGAN is the only state even close to getting it RIGHT since they are not just opting to implement the FSC cigarette, but they will be moving the legislation to include a BAN ON ALL CHEMICALS IN CIGARETTES period! Which will mean that the two inch chemical 'bands' on all of ~our~ cigarettes will likely not exist in the MICHIGAN cigarettes.
Therefore, I do find this legislation a tad in conflict with the notion of increased 'health care' (a perceived concern for our well-being) that our nation's leaders also herald.... yeah, just a tad.

The new fire safe cigarettes are dangerous. I began feeling as if someone was squeezing my throat, had difficulty and pain when swallowing. When I mentioned this to other smokers, to my astonishment, they responded that they were experiencing the same symptoms. This is affecting many people. To those who say just quit, thanks for the brilliant advice. However this is health issue needs to be addressed.

Chad Jordan said...

I am livid about this. I have been sick, I have been nausious, sick to my stomach, headaches, just overall sick like the flu almost. My wife (smoker) my mother in law, and everyone I have met have been suffering the SAME effects. I swear to you, this WILL kill us smokers ALOT faster, if it doesnt kill us in a few short years. Mark my word, we will have major problems. The chemicals are the same thats in CARPET GLUE, we are basically burning and huffing carpet glue as the chemicals burn. I am going to try and buy my cigarettes overseas to prevent this. Also, I am going to start rolling my own on "NON FSC rolling papers" with my own filters. I am not going to pay someone to poision me.
Yet, just another way for Smokers to be put in a corner and we are not doing anything about it.
I am absolutely fed up with this and I am not going to take this lying down.

my concern with the FSC is that fallout from my cigarette almost caught me on fire. i see the band of whatever it is they added to the paper and am more careful when i reach that area of my smoke. if it is suppose to retard the ash from causing me harm, then why does it come off in chunks now?

I first got the fsc cigarettes in November,, hated them , but of course, continued to smoke. Now, three months later I am dizzy almost everyday, and coughing up lots of mucous. This is ridiculous. We should have the option of having chemical free cigarettes. This is a great example of government interfering where they have no business to be.
Yeah,, adding 14% to 22% more dangerous chemicals to make us safer???

Rebecca Brooks said...

FSC or fire safe cigarette laws were passed state by state using deception and misinformation. FSC cigarettes greatly increase health risks for smokers. Smoking-related fires have actually increased for smokers in New York, the first state to pass the law.

I sent letters to most of Fox News commentators regarding this issue, hoping someone would take this subject on, 9-15-10. No reply..I'm hoping someone does.. because the media is needed to spread the importance of it... not just a few but many people are against FSC.. and something has to be done. It's like no one cares..we are people too.. American Citizens.. someone please go get em! This issue is far more important than carrot sticks and apple slices wouldn't you say??

Hey I know, why don't we make fire safe wood too for fireplaces? I mean ya never know, the wood could crackle and shoot out hot lit ash when someone leaves the room unattended causing a house fire. Bout the same odds as a cigarette causing a fire. I've been smoking for 15 years and never started a fire. I am no longer proud to be an American. I think this country sucks. When you got these rich corrupt people tampering with our simple freedoms along with making us pay 6 times more than we did 15 years ago(which were actual cigarettes that you could smoke at 1/6th the price).

Ravenwood421 said...

..ooh forgot to mention, make it about every 3-4 minutes to force those rich assholes off their couch to flip their wood over.
