Sorry Smokers, Marlboro Will Soon Stop Making and Selling Cigarettes
Wait, do you hear that? That's the sound of 51 state treasurers weeping.
Would be interesting to see who buys the Marlboro brand name. The cigarette smoker market may be declining in the USA and other western nations, but in other markets it's not the case from what I have read over the last few years. Marlboro will still be a brand you see everywhere, regardless of who makes them.
I had an urge to quick go out and buy a pack upon reading the post title....
A pack of seeds?
Grow Your Own,
Heirloom Tobacco Seeds - Rare, Open-Pollinated and Non-Hybrid Seed Varieties from Victory Seeds
That article is a year old. A lot of things could have changed in that time.
I wonder if they've started a "Are you stocking up?" thread on the cigarette forums.
Buying a carton of reds, just in case...
It's also a joke... like an article from the onion.
EDIT: Hopefully this reply is down far enough that it does not spoil the joke.
Marlboro announces plan to stop making cigarettes
I said it when talk of this 1st Surfaced, and I'll say it Now...
I'll Believe it when I See It.
I was wondering about that when I was skimming through it (didn't really read the whole thing). Seemed so odd to me they would just want to ditch a product that still has a large worldwide consumer base.
Ya, the article is a year old and no dates were mentioned. Could be this year, or it could be in 2040
Kinda like I used to say, "I will soon stop smoking."
I did that for 30-some years.

My cousin continues to smoke, even after vaping. Just last night he informed me that most don't buy Marlboro due to pricing. He mentioned "Freedom" brand cigarettes. $1.50 per pack vs $7.00 per pack... That's just crazy! Why would PM charge so much for a pack of cigarettes?
Because they can, and many smokers are loyal to their favorite brand regardless of price.
till death do them part (c)
i never liked marlboro
they are too tightly rolled, or something
i smoked rollies, but even by tailor made standards marlboros are too tight
What?!?! Taxes are more than $1.50 in most states. Fed taxes are about a buck per pack. So even in the lowest state-tax areas, they'd have to be practically giving the damn things away to sell em at $1.50. Maybe in MO or something. But still, I'd be surprised.
Unless they're bootleg. "Freedom" brand...maybe. They'd be tax-dodging then, so sure.
