22nd Century Group (NASDAQ: XXII) is a leading agricultural biotechnology company dedicated to improving human health with reduced nicotine tobacco, hemp/cannabis, and hops advanced plant technologies. The company is now selling the first and only 95% reduced nicotine content cigarette compliant with the renewed federal policy initiative to require all cigarettes sold in the U.S. be made minimally or non-addictive. “We are excited to pilot sales of the first and only cigarette designed specifically not to create and sustain addiction, but to instead reduce the hold of cigarette addiction on adult smokers,” said John Miller, president of 22nd Century’s tobacco programs. “The facts clearly demonstrate that the overwhelming majority of smokers want to quit, but few are able to do so, even after repeated attempts with current smoking cessation therapies or alternative nicotine products. VLN(R) from 22nd Century offers a new approach in this fight – a tobacco cigarette that actually helps adult smokers reduce their nicotine consumption and smoke less. We are hopeful that many will also go on to quit their habit of smoking highly addictive cigarettes entirely.”
