Early Appearence of a Filter Tip Cigarette (Jul, 1936)

A new cigarette has a novel filter tip made of rolled, pleated paper. Besides protecting the smoker’s lips from the annoyance of loose tobacco ends, the rolled-in filter is said to provide a cooler smoke.

    I love the fact that nobody noticed that fact that the filters must have been dripping with tar and carcinogenic chemical sludge. At least it keeps those annoying bits of tobacco out of your mouth 🙂 Marketing ain’t what it is now.

    I have no doubt that at some point they did make the filters out of asbestos. Or just pure cancer. You’ve never smoked ’till you’ve had the full rich flavor of cancer.
