One of the things I find most annoying and offensive oft repeated by the Anti-All-Tobacco crowd is their insistence that if something contains tobacco, it's bad. One of the things I find most encouraging of late is that more and more Anti-Cigarette advocates are open to, and even embracing, Smokeless Tobacco as a positive alternative for the nicotine-addicted. The absolute least harmful smokeless tobacco product made today is Swedish Snus.
A cigarette smoker reduces their harm factor at least 98% by switching to Swedish/Scandinavian snus and is 99% more likely to stop smoking than someone using American Snus. American snus was specifically designed and marketed to be a complement to cigarettes...when you can't smoke, snus. Nicotine Gum and Patches have a documented 80% failure rate. Swedish snus is designed to be a cigarette replacement product and has done just that for countless former cigarette smokers; in Scandinavia and now the United States.
I originally wrote this article on May 18th after the Tobacco Plus Expo in New Orleans. There just wasn't something right with it which kept me from publishing this article. I came back to it a few times but still didn't like it. Today, I realized what was bothering me, fixed it, and updated the article. So six weeks after version one, here it is for your reading pleasure!
According to sources which the SnusCENTRAL Intelligence Agency is blackmailing, SnusAB, the Swedish Snus Manufacturer which produces Grand Prix Snus for Liggett Vector, is bankrupt. This would certainly put a crimp in Grand Prix Snus distribution. Bad fortune for one can be good fortune for another, however. If SnusAB is folding completely or going through the Swedish equivalent of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy may be irrelevant to Liggett Vector. This could be their golden opportunity to revitalize the brand into something competitive.
