I got a big shock of my life this morning. I can confirm Newports are FSCs already. I saw the three deadly letters of "FSC" in the pack's bar code. FSC stands for Fire-Safe Cigarettes.
This is the biggest shock of my life. And no wonder I've been smoking a lot less on Newports recently. While I'm smoking more than a pack on some menthol brands that actually taste minty.
Good-bye Newports. I made the mistake of not checking the bar code months ago. But I feel like I've been duped. At least I won't have a hard time getting rid the rest of these packs. Since some brainwashed bros/sis in the hood don't even know what FSCs stands for. As long as they're Newports, they'll smoke em. FSCs or not.
I'm in the process of looking for online proof that FSCs have more chemicals in them, Since some smokers online are convinced FSCs have fewer chemicals.
