What is a smoke free tobacco company, isn't that an oxymoron? Trying to wrap my head around that bnrk
As is the case with 99% of the companies who make and/or sell e-cigarettes. E-cigarette vendors don't sell e-cigarettes out of the goodness of their hearts or else they'd be giving the stuff away. They sell e-cigarettes because they saw the potential to make money and feel good about themselves. People forget that most big corporations started out with an idea from one or two innovators and they grew because their products were in demand and investors big and small jumped on the band wagon. Most average workers who get retirement plans to contribute to (that use diverse investment portfolios) are just as much a part of the corporate machine as any other stockholder. Those "greedy corporations that only care about profits for stockholders" are most likely a significant part of what is growing your retirement fund, because you are one of those stockholders.Lorilard didn't buy Blu because they care about our health, they bought it because their concern is the health of their bank accounts.
Thanks for that, I had no idea that these companies existed.
Star Tobacco Inc. (Star Scientific) is a smoke-free tobacco company. They do not make cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, etc. They only make tobacco products which are not smoked.
U.S.Smokeless Tobacco Company is the company the Lorillard CEO came from and they only make moist snuff products. They were bought by Altria in 2008.
