Beyond nicotine

To no-one's surprise:

Jennifer Motles Svigilsky detests cigarettes. A former human rights lawyer with the United Nations ... [she represents] one of the world’s largest cigarette companies, Phillip Morris International (PMI).

But wait, there's more:

"[In the short term,] we need to provide alternative choices to smokers who cannot quit [or cannot quit yet]."

In the long term, she says, "we may not even be in the nicotine business."

Let that sink in.

"In the long term, we may not even be in the nicotine business."

You couldn’t make it up.

It looks like PMI has been captured by antismoker zealots.

Manipulating corporate boards has a long history in tobacco control. This is more evidence that thier racketeering approach is still active.

This is also additional evidence that actual science and facts are optional in the world of social control; as demonstrated that nicotine is presented as something negative when in actual fact it is as harmless as caffeine.

Tobacco control’s lies, propaganda, and corrupt practices must be exposed.

Having looked at a list of their brands, I don't think that I've ever bought any Philip Morris products, so if they eventually decide to stop making cigarettes, they'll have to announce it in the papers for me to even notice.

Well, I detest her and PMI....bunch of mercenaries only chasing the buck, while trying to present themselves as saviors of 1 billion people.
