Recently a story from Abril Uno published and spread a story saying that Phillip Morris along with other popular Marlboro cigarettes introduces Marlboro Marijuana Cigarettes and the next day the Internet exploded and hundreds of thousands of people shared this information on social media and on their pages or blogs.

In the article there was announced that Phillip Morris, the world's biggest cigarette producer, announced that they will join the marijuana legalization tendency and start producing marijuana cigarettes. Marlboro M would be a major move by the multi-million dollar company and potentially signal big business's embrace of marijuana all over the world.

It is funny to know that actually Abril Uno (the name of the publication) is translated fromn Spanish as "April First" or “April Fools”However the key lines in the article should have given any intelligent writer an idea that this was too good to be true. So the internet is full of fake news and jokes like this and unfortunately we will have to wait until Phillip Morris will make beautifully packed joints for us.

Menthol Cigarettes Tendencies

Menthol, derived from the peppermint plant is a substance that provides a minty flavor and cooling sensation in cigarettes and tobacco products, covering up the tobacco taste and reducing the throat irritation in the inhaling process. It is a very popular product among first-time users. Latest researches show that newer and younger smokers use menthol cigarettes at dramatically higher rates than older smokers.

Menthol Cigs
Menthol was first added to cigarettes during the 1920s. Spud was the first cigarette brand to add menthol. An estimated 43.8 million people, or 19.0% of all adults (aged 18 years or older), in the United States smokes menthol tobacco products. Approximately one out of every four cigarettes sold in the United States is actually “menthol”. Menthol cigarettes are disproportionately smoked by certain groups, such as adolescents, African Americans, adult females, and families with lower income. In the last decades the tobacco industry has targeted much menthol advertising to minority racial and ethnic groups. As a result, they are smoked excessively by African Americans. And studies have shown that when menthol smokers try to quit smoking, they have more difficulty than non-menthol smokers.

Nicotine Improves Failing Memory in Elders

Tobacco is considered an evil habit which is only used nowadays for making chemical products like cigarettes, known to promote cancer. But that's definitely not the whole truth about tobacco, which has been used historically by many cultures both in religious rituals and also as a natural therapy for various ailments from tuberculosis to colds and other viral infections.

According to the new research, nicotine helps improve memory and attention span in people with Alzheimer's disease. This is due to the fact that nicotine stimulates receptors in the brain that are important for thinking and memory skills and people suffering from this terrible disease are known to drop some of these receptors.

The new study investigated whether nicotine could help people with mild cognitive impairment -- the stage before dementia when people have mild memory or thinking problems but are not disabled. At the end of six months, the results were spectacular. Although the placebo group's mental abilities had decreased by 26 percent over this time period, the nicotine-treated group had regained a extraordinary 46 percent of normal performance for age on long-term memory and there were no serious side effects observed the people receiving the nicotine patch, either.
