I got these a little cheaper than usual. Not too bad, as others have mentioned, not quite as great towards the end of the pack for some reason but I don’t hate them. These taste like they have a fairly decent blend of a full flavor/bold tobacco with Menthol in a lesser, more “off to the side” quantity, but definitely noticable. I’d say stronger than a Newport Gold definitely. I get a pretty big boost from these and the morning cigarette makes me pretty dizzy. They do seem to burn a little faster, but not quite as bad as some others. It could also have been the size or frequency of the puffs I was taking so take that with a grain of salt. Overall I like these pretty well, delivers a bold, fulfilling smoke with the menthol we’re fond of, and the hefty buzz of your average Red. And they come in 100s so they aren’t super short (72s aren’t bad but geez).

Massachusetts residents who smoked marlboro cigarettes could be part of a lawsuit against… — boston, june 25, 2013 /prnewswire-usnewswire/ —

Menthol cigarettes could be banned by european union

BOSTON, June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire USNewswire/ The following is being released by the law firm of Phillips & Paolicelli, LLP.

A class action lawsuit has been brought against Philip Morris. The lawsuit seeks to have Philip Morris pay for medical monitoring in the form of a low dose computed tomography (CT) scan. Medical monitoring is a potentially life saving screening technique, which can often detect lung cancer at an early stage, greatly increasing the chances of survival.

The Court ordered this notice and decided that this case should be a class action. There are no benefits available now and no guarantee that there will be.

About the Case The lawsuit claims that Philip Morris designed, marketed, and sold Marlboro cigarettes that delivered excessive and dangerous level of carcinogens, cancer causing substances, in violation of Massachusetts state law. This lawsuit does not include current or future personal injury claims involving smoking related diseases. Philip Morris denies these claims and denies it did anything wrong. The lawyers for the Class will have to prove their claims in Court.

Who is Included Class Members include residents of Massachusetts as of February 26, 2013 who

  • Are 50 years of age or older
  • Have a smoking history equal to at least a pack a day of Marlboro cigarettes for 20 years (e.g., one pack a day for 20 years two packs a day for 10 years a half pack a day for 40 years)
  • Currently smoke Marlboro cigarettes, or quit smoking Marlboro cigarettes on or after December 14, 2005
  • Have not been diagnosed with lung cancer and a doctor does not suspect that you have lung cancer as of the date of any judgment entered, or relief obtained, in this lawsuit and
  • Have smoked Marlboro cigarettes within Massachusetts.

Law Firm Representing the Class The Court has appointed Phillips & Paolicelli, LLP, as well as Thornton & Naumes, LLP Arrowood Peters, LLP and Todd & Weld, LLP, to represent the Class as “Class Counsel.” You do not have to pay anyone to participate. Instead, the attorneys will seek an award of fees and costs from the Court, to be paid by Philip Morris, or out of a fund created for the Class, if one becomes available. You may hire your own lawyer to appear in Court for you, but if you do, you have to pay that lawyer.

Class Member Options

Stay in the Class Class Members do not need to do anything to stay in the Class. Class Members will be notified about how to ask for medical monitoring if benefits are obtained. Remaining in the Class will not prevent Class Members from bringing a lawsuit against Philip Morris for damages in the event that they contract cancer or another condition as a result of smoking.

Get out of the Class Class Members who want to keep your rights to sue Philip Morris on their own over the claims in this case need to exclude themselves by mailing a letter to the address below stating that they do not want to be included in this lawsuit. However, Class Members who exclude themselves will not get medical monitoring from this lawsuit if it is awarded. The deadline to ask for exclusion is August 19, 2013.
