It may be Fire Safe Compliant – but does it taste good?

In an attempt to prevent fires from unattended lit cigarettes various governments are requiring FSC cigarettes. 49 of the 50 US States require it or have already passed legislation that will. Lone stand-out is Wyoming (population 10)  but this is only a matter of time. Canada required it several years go, Australia and South Africa will soon and the EU.

Look through this blog and you will see many complaints about the taste of FSC cigarettes. It would be interesting to know what Brands?

Many consumers dislike the taste and believe something noxious has been added to deter smokers- not true.

What has changed is the burn characteristics of the cigarette and when you do this the taste changes.

As FSC regulations come on board many Manufacturers are 100% migrating to FSC product to avoid shipping the wrong product into a FSC State and avoid the heavy fines associated with this error.

So what’s your experience? Tell us what Brands you’re smoking and if they taste good or bad??

Feedback welcome.

The world is spinning out of control! You can’t do this, you can’t do that. I don’t know how many laws have been put into place in the last 20 years but I can bet there are so many it would take days to tally them all up! America was founded on freedom. Europeans wanted a new way of life without all these taxes and laws. We are all taxed to death. There are too many bored politicians thinking up this stuff because they can’t think of anything else. Take a stand people, voice your opinions. Enough!!

I have found so much trash in each bag of tobacco purchased that I have began to put them in a bag. Now my last bag is dried out so much I can’t use the tobacco. It is ruined. What can you do about it.
