True Concern Should Be Reducing Nicotine

October 23, 1994

Will the new product ("R.J. Reynolds to Introduce a Less-Smelly Cigarette," Oct. 11) be a new version of its Salem menthol brand featuring a cigarette paper that reduces stale odors? Apparently there is still no concern with reducing the manipulation of the nicotine content. We can now look forward to cases of the sweetest-smelling nicotine-infected cancerous lungs in history.

However, if R.J. Reynolds really wanted to provide an example of good citizenship, it could help stamp out the country's vicarious smoking habit by treating its product with substances that decrease the cigarettes' nicotine content while at the same time increasing its stale and obnoxious odors.
