The 2009 tobacco legislation is also known by some as the Marlboro Monopoly Act of 2009. It's enabled Philip Morris to cash in on both the anti-smoking products in the U.S (that are ending up in the water supply) and also flood the international market with their inferior tobacco products. If anyone is guilty of counterfeit tobacco products... it's Philip Morris! Their Sampoerna are THE worst clove cigarettes I have ever smoked and they should not be allowed to call them kreteks because they're full of JUNK! They are also the only cigarette that I have ever smoked where the entire lit end of the cigarette falls off when tapping it to remove the ash! A good cigarette or kretek will extinguish itself just like a cigar when it's not being puffed. Not so with gun-powder laden cigarettes that will keep on burning... creating a fire hazard to boot! And from my experience... Philip Morris Sampoerna's top that list!
