has anybody else heard about some poisoned cigarettes being sold around Logan? My wife works at Logan General and she said they've had about 15 or 16 people brought in to the emergency room in the last 3 weeks from either arsenic or maybe cyanide poison found in the cigarettes they'd been smoking.

Did you happen to ask her if she knew what brands they'd been smoking?

I'm happy to see you back, Clark. I read your post about losing a family member, and I'm sorry. I don't know anything about the cigarettes, but I'm very interested. If this is true, the public needs to be alerted. Did you ever have your surgery on that shoulder? I saw your post recently on the Dr. Wood thread where you said you were taking classes, so I know you have been busy.
just wondering

Is it possible that some of these people were smoking some contaminated weed and didn't want to admit it?

Arsenic and Cyanide are in all cigarettes. Its what keeps them burning when you are not puffing on them....

Haven't you seen those "Truth" commercials. There are over 100 toxic substances in your typical cigarette.
Unfortunately they are slow acting over years....
If there were tainted cigarettes half of logan county would be in the grave right now...

If 15 people went to the hospital claiming cigarette poisoning, they were just typical logan county @44holes trying to scam pain pills....

You are most likely right about the pain pills. There are even people who have real illnesses and injuries who don't want to get better because they will lose their supply.

I smoke and I must have got some type of poison from cigarettes because it felt as if my body crashed.

I got my cigarettes in another state they would not STAY lit.

I was smoking almost 4 packs a day I stopped for a few days now I smoke about 1/2 pack a day. I feel better now. I changed cigarette.

the ones that won't stay lit are sold in KY..they are :safety cigrettes" if you drop them or fall asleep while smoking they go out on there own but if you go a few seconds without hitting it they go out then too.

The cigarettes are making their way in WV too. There are some in Man I believe. There was a lady telling me that her husband smoked them and he got very sick and that he broke out in hives. It could be what they are putting in the cigarettes in addition to what is already in them. Who knows?

I know that some of the USA Ultra light cigs had this fire hazard stuff added to them. Its has like S F on the side of the pack. I was told if you leave a cigarette burning it will go out. That is why they wont stay lit. Omar Quick Stop was selling some and they took them off the shelf because no one would buy them. Hope this helps.

ask your doctor about chantix, i tell ya it helped me within less than a mth. i went from 2 packs a day, to one pack a day , to a half a pack and i still had not finished the medicine and i didn't want any more, and the good thing is that you can still smoke while taking them but you get to where you don't want any during about the first week. i tell ya it works.

That's a lovely sentiment. Kill some people so something won't annoy you!
Why didn't you add a Wunderbar! and Jahahahaha to the end of that post? Sehr gut, multiple lenders!
How about we drop some rat poison in the beer supply?

I'd also like to know how showing up in the emergency room for arsenic or cyanide poisoning would warrant pain pills..
Even somebody on some serious dope wouldn't think that would work. They'd just take a hammer to their hand or scald themselves with coffee. That has been known to happen.

Clark so would I like to know why anyone would need a pain pill for poisoning??

To the one made that comment must not know what is to smoke. I LOVE my cigarettes but for heath reason I am trying to stop. Maybe I can maybe I can't. I have smoked since I was 5 years old.

To the person who was rude the doctor did not give me a pain pill. He told me to drink 1/2 gallon of water a day and gave me 10 fluid pills to take to flush the poison out of my body.

To Clark my friend welcome back so sorry for you and your family. You are in my thoughts.
