Marlboro is a brand of cigarette.It is well known for its stand advertisements of the Marlboro cowboy. Nowadays its the bestseller-cigarette-brand all around the world. Philip Morris, a London-based cigarette producer, created a New York branch in 1903 to sell some of its cigarette brands, which include Marlboro too. By 1925 they made advertisement of Marlboro cigarettes as a lady’s cigarettes based on the ads slogan “Mild As May”.
The Marlboro cigarette brand was sold in this role until 1940 year when the Marlboro cigarette brand stumbled and was removed from the cigarette market for a while. In the 1945, three cigarette brands: Lucky Strike cigarettes, Camel cigarettes, and Chesterfield cigarettes showed up and established a company hold on the cigarette market. But, in the 1950s Marlboro cigarettes impressively came back. Marlboro cigarettes posted a new Marlboro man image in promotion and the sales soar up by 5000%.
During the same time the journal published a series of articles about smoking Marlboro cigarettes. Philip Morris began a legacy of bold moves to meet market challenges by taking a virtually unknown woman’s cigarette and reintroducing it with a new masculine face and filter in the midst of the first lung cancer reports.
Philip Morris Cigarette Company and the other cigarette companies began to market filtered cigarettes. The new Marlboro cigarettes with a filtered tip were launched in the beginning of the 1955 year.
The brand is named after Great Marlborough Street, the location of its original London factory.
Bakersfield College’s Mentoring and Peer Services, and the Student Health and Wellness Center will host the 37th annual Great American Smokeout on Nov. 15, argued Richard Heath, the Student Government Association treasurer and lead MAPS mentor. This is Heath’s second year participating in the Smokeout. “When we did it last year it was pretty very successful,” he said. “We brought out the tombstone and the coffin, and we had people donating cigarettes.” This year donating your cigarettes may win you a NOOK tablet reader.
You can get raffle tickets to win the NOOK by donating your cigarettes, or watching some of the cig educational screenings during the Smokeout. B-COUGH is also part of the Smokeout according to Nick Acosta, SGA general counsel and B-COUGH’s student chair. B-COUGH is coordinating with MAPS to help organize the event. “We want to see just how we’re going to reach people and encourage them to stop smoking tobacco,” Acosta argued.
“I think it’s going to be a great event. There will also be students filling out pledges to quit smoking. “We’re going to encourage people to stop smoking in a bunch of different ways as possible, and hopefully we’ll bring awareness to the smoking issue and help them stop smoking.” Tobacco Free Coalition of Kern County will have events in the Levan Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. discussing various topics including cigarette-butt littering, second-hand smoke and other smoking control issues affecting Kern County residents. Heath said Kern County Mental Health and the Student Health and Wellness Center will conduct depression screenings in the three tents that will be on the grassy area in front of the library. He is encouraging students to take advantage of it.
Tawntannisha Thompson, BC’s liaison to the dean of students and coordinator for MAPS and BC Be Fit, said that November is fight depression month. She said that last month the students were given suicide literature and some had an initial screening, and that this is just a follow up to that. “Everything’s going to be under the tent,” Thompson said. “There will be popcorn and cotton candy.” BC Be Fit will be in one of the tents having a Zumba dance session to get people’s hearts pumping. Thompson wouldn’t let on about the surprises and other things happening in the tents. “They have to show up to find out what’s going on under the tent,” said Thompson. The coffin, the raffle, the screenings, “It’s all taking place under the tent.” Heath said that every time MAPS set up the tables on the campus they see between 200 to 300 students. Usually two or three students take his advice.
The move will widen a trial launched in May at three supermarkets and one convenience shop and was made after a new health tax enforced by the Scottish Government in April. The company will stop the sale of cigs in stores in Drumchapel, Garthdee, Hamilton, Saltcoats, Livingston and Leven from this morning. A study by the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR), commissioned by Asda, required new profits from Scottish supermarkets could be decreased by 10 per cent following the introduction of the levy. Yesterday, Tesco and Morrisons declared that they had no plans to follow Sainsbury’s. The new tobacco business rates apply to large retailers that sell smoking products and alcohol and go towards implementing the costs of problems associated with these two types of tobacco product.
A spokesperson for Sainsbury’s reported: “The influence of the levy introduced by the Scottish Government has led us to undertake a review of the sale of tobacco products in our Scottish shops.” A Scottish Government spokesperson explained: “The public health supplement was introduced in recognition of Scotland’s well-documented health and social problems associated with alcohol and tobacco smoking. “This Government is already taking new action for to reduce alcohol and tobacco use related bad effects through legislation to introduce minimum pricing for alcohol and prohibiting tobacco products displays.” Meanwhile, the legal challenge by Imperial Tobacco to legislation to ban no staffed tobacco vending machines and open cigarettes displays in stores will begin today at the Court of Session.
In spite of the new smoking ban having been overwhelmingly passed in the Scottish Parliament and twice upheld by Scottish courts, Imperial Tobacco brought its legal challenge on the basis that the Scottish Parliament does not have the right to legalize on the sale of goods in Scotland. Legislation on retail tobacco displays for large retailers was introduced in England in April earlier this year. Legislation for Northern Ireland came in to force at the end of last month and is due to come into force in Wales on December 3.
Inhabitants, rich and poor, adults and kids are attracted by super-engineered billboards inviting young and old to smoke tobacco. Our televisions are also invaded by cigarette ads. They are so well engineered that we hardly remark the counsel that is mandatory information for all smokers, which appears so fast it can with difficulty be read.
Cigarettes butts in ashtrays and on the streets, including those in useless baskets, are targets of poor youngsters who have been addicted since childhood since their small rooms are usually destroyed with destructive cigarettes smoke.
The children of the well-to-do simply ask their parents for more pocket money without explaining what it is for, and spend it on a blended, aromatic package of cigs. The more expensive is the brand the higher elite standard the smoker is considered by the colleagues: This happens to be the same thought of their badly parents who are addicted to nicotine. However, a cigarette maker has gone further in its united social responsibility (CSR) commitment than the ability of any other company’s ability to match in this engagement.
The planting of 1,000 Trembesi trees along the Java north coast highway (Pantura) is indeed remarkable. No other company has rushed to commit that much in CSR. If tobacco companies requested evident responsibility, by switching their basic tobacco business from the demolition of the people’s lungs to the population’s prosperity increase.
Although the no-smoking regulations are supposed to be enforced before the end of this month, cigarette sales and ads of less than a full package of 20, will still continue for a period of time. Sisy Castillo, vice-ministry de Salud, who has been working in the making of the laws that are expected to go before the Presidenta for her signature starting with June 26, said the regulation offers time for the tobacco industries and tobacco ads for a period of six to twelve months.
Castillo declared that a research showed that the stock of packages less than 20 will run out in warehouses within the next three months and advertising contracts signed prior to the regulation can remain in effect until the expire and cannot be renovated.
As to “loosy” cigs, that is the sale of just one that has been common, especially in the downtown areas of San José, should have stopped already, but with the ordinances, the ministerio de Salud will have the permission to enforce the regulation with fines and even agreements.
With respect to cigarettes butts in parks and other public places, the vice-ministra declared that it will be up to the public institutions to guarantee the clean up and be responsible to post no smoking special signs.
Once upon a time, smoking tobacco in Japan is not banned or limited, so the sight of smokers was common. With Japan’s low cigs prices and the country’s ever-so-accessible cigarettes vending machines, smokers could light up their favorite smoking brand on the streets, in pubs, and even in restaurants. That is until higher tobacco taxes were enforced on cigarettes and many public areas were turned into non-smoking buildings. Smoking tobacco was also prohibited on the streets and in offices.
This, of course, has been disappointing and painful for smokers as they are not able to enjoy their smoking habit as easily as before.
The Japanese government recently reported that it is going to launch a new program that aims to decrease the smoking rate in half in 10 years.
Tobacco company General Holdings has come to the common smoker’s attack by launching Ippuku.
Ippuku is an indoor smoking place that is open every day from 6 AM to midnight, very well equipped with ventilation special systems, aroma diffusers, vending machines, televisions, background music, and also free Internet.
Starting with July 3, Ippuku shops will open in Tokyo: one near Ochanomizu, and two others in Jimbocho and Kanada stations.
General Holdings new plans to open a total of 36 sections all over Tokyo by the end of 2015.
In addition to the price rate of 50 yen (per person, per visit), clients will be able to choose from daily (100 yen), weekly (500 yen) and even monthly (1800 yen) passes.
A federal judge has struck down a provision of a local tobacco control ordinance that bans outdoor advertising of tobacco products within the city. In a 23-page decision released yesterday, U.S. District Court Judge Douglas P. Woodlock ruled the ban is unconstitutional. He said the city has no legitimate interest in prohibiting “non-misleading advertising” to adults to prevent them from making decisions of which the city disapproves.
The judge added that the city failed to show the outdoor advertising regulations are not more extensive than necessary to advance its substantial interest in preventing underage tobacco use. He went on to say that the city also made no effort in crafting the ordinance to determine what types of advertisements are most harmful to minors. He said a ban on all signs of any size seems “ill suited” totargetthe problems of highly visible billboards, as opposed to smaller signs.
“The broad sweep of the ordinance suggests that the (city) did not consider how to tailor the restrictions so as not to unduly burden the plaintiffs’ free speech rights and the rights of adults to truthful information about tobacco products,” Judge Woodlock wrote.
“Neither the city’s goal to prevent tobacco-related health problems among adults, nor its correlative goal regarding minors, provides a basis for the ordinance,” he wrote.
The suit was brought against the city by the National Association of Tobacco Outlets Inc.; R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co.;Philip Morris USAInc.; and Lorillard Tobacco Co.
Tobacco companies hailed the court decision as a victory for free speech.
“Tobacco companies have a constitutional right to communicate with adult consumers through retail advertising and this court appropriately recognized that,” said Murray Garnick, Altria Client Services senior vice president and associate general counsel, speaking on behalf of Philip Morris.
Andrew Kerstein, president of the National Association of Tobacco Outlets, was also pleased with the decision. He said while his organization shares the city’s goal of preventing minors from gaining access to and using tobacco products, he feels the outdoor advertising ban went too far.
City Solicitor David M. Moore said the city hasn’t decided whether it will appeal the decision. He said all options are being reviewed.
Meanwhile, District 2 Councilor Philip P. Palmieri, a leading advocate of the tougher tobacco control ordinance, said he was disappointed by the court decision. He said while he strongly believes in the First Amendment, the ordinance was aimed at reducing the number of “unnecessary deaths” in the city caused by tobacco products.
“I am disappointed that the judge did not take into consideration the most basic and fundamental consideration of young children being impacted by this rule,” he said.
Last April, Worcester became the ninth municipality inthe stateto ban the sale of cigarettes and other tobacco products by local health-care providers, including chain pharmacies and other drugstores. The ban was one of four amendments to the city’s tobacco control ordinance.
The other amendments also banned the sale of tobacco products at local institutions of higher education and the citywide sale of so-called blunt wraps — a cigarette-like rolling paper that is usually made from tobacco leaves.
In addition, cigarettes and tobacco products can not be advertised in areas where they can be viewed from public streets, parks, schools and institutions of higher education. That effectively banned the outdoor advertisement of tobacco products throughout the city.
Advocates of the amendments called the council’s action “historic,” adding that they will serve as an important first step to reduce the smoking rate in Worcester.
In drafting the ordinance, city public health officials pointed out that an estimated 31,265 smokers live in Worcester. They said 23.7 percent of adults living in the city smoke — a level that is 47 percent higher than the statewide rate of 16.1 percent.
Also, cigarette smoking among residents ages 45 to 64 is at the 23.7 percent level, which is 42 percent higher than the statewide level of 16.7 percent.
Meanwhile, the death rate among Worcester residents from tobacco is about 250 people annually, or roughly five deaths per week, according to public health officials.
Soon after the City Council adopted the ordinance, tobacco companies filed suit against the city, challenging the validity of the advertising ban. The city agreed not to enforce that provision of the ordinance while the lawsuit was pending.
The council pursued the tougher regulations because of the health harms caused by tobacco and the relationship between tobacco advertising and increased tobacco use. But the tobacco companies objected to the ordinance’s advertising regulation, saying it will impede their ability to market their products within the city.
“The plaintiffs do not claim that the city of Worcester lacks a substantial government interest in preventing youth tobacco use,” the judge wrote. “However, they argue that the city’s substantial interest is limited to protecting minors.
“They contend the city has no legitimate interest in prohibiting non-misleading advertising to adults to prevent them from making decisions of which the city disapproves,” he added.
Judge Woodlock said the U.S. Supreme Court in 2002 considered a similar First Amendment challenge to a statute prohibiting the promotion of compound drugs.
But the Supreme Court dismissed the notion that government has an interest in preventing the dissemination of truthful commercial information in order to prevent the public from making bad decisions with that information.
“The (Supreme) Court thus rejected the principal interest advanced by the city of Worcester in support of its advertising restriction,” the judge wrote.
Judge Woodlock also made reference to a decision made by the Supreme Court last year that effectively prohibits the city from seeking to remove a popular product such as tobacco, from the marketplace by prohibiting truthful, non-misleading advertisements directed to adults.
Under that court decision, the judge said, “Worcester may not prohibit tobacco advertisements in order to prevent adults from making the choice to legally purchase tobacco products.”
In December, the legal challenge of the city’s ban on the sale of blunt wraps was dropped. Meanwhile, Honey Farms has filed a challenge to the provision of the tobacco control ordinance that bans the sale of tobacco products on property owned by educational institutions.
