Marlboro ‘M’ Marijuana Cigarettes Are Coming.
It was only a matter of time before big tobacco got on this bandwagon, but now you’ll have one more choice besides Marb reds or lights when you go to grab a pack at gas stations in Colorado and Washington. Phillip Morris the makers of Marlboro cigarettes will be putting out these new cancer sticks later this year.
[Phillip Morris’s vice president of marketing] adds that they have begun contacting former drug lords in Mexico and Paraguay, currently the largest marijuana-producing countries in the world, for the possibility of setting up a distribution ring across the North and South American continents, to streamline the supply lines.
Kinda funny that you can’t smoke E-cigarettes in NYC, but you can smoke weed on the West Coast isn’t it?? Now, as a former recreational smoker that has never toked weed ever (I know, how’d THAT happen, I’m a musician right?) that statement just puts all kinds of crawl under my skin. Maybe this was the same as alcohol prohibition being lifted in the 20’s and I’m just used to one way of life but just knowing that countless people have died on both sides of the fence during the drug wars makes my heart sink.
Be that as it may, people are likely moving to these two states in order to experience the new freedoms that this new legislation has to offer and it’s only a matter of time before all 50 states embrace this huge MONEY-MAKING opportunity. This year’s Superbowl may be billed as the Weed Bowl but the aforementioned cigarette company has already bought most of next year’s 2015 big game ad time and will be promoting it’s new smokes fervently. I’ve heard it said that you can’t drive drunk, but you can drive baked and after being a musician in the business and watching so many of my pals light up at 4:20 or any other point on the clock, that may be true but there’s no doubt of the obvious altering effects that the drug has on the brain.
