            Guess what I’m a woman and white and I’ve smoked Newport 100s for about 20yrs . Ive noticed that the taste was making me nauseous, super phlegmy and legit sick for about 2 weeks now.I honestly can’t stand to even light them up at this point.
            I’d really rather roll my own than this ridiculous burnt perfume taste .
            Absolutely freaking disgusting.Come 5 am when the stores open I’m done with this “brand ” of Newport.

          • Veda Scott says:

            That’s not true about only people of color smoking Newports, there have been the growing number of white middle-class lower-income smoking Newports oh that’s not true Kohl’s used to be secrets of black people but mostly white people when I was growing up and then Marlboro and there’s a lot of people that smoke non-menthol that are black and there’s more people especially younger generation smoking Newports so don’tstart categorizing cigarette in a racist manner they’re freaking cigarettes

          I Just bought fake Newport’s at a corner store in Baltimore at Saratoga and Eutaw st. How do you contact? The cigarettes look really like the real deal but close observation the Newport letters on the cigarette are different and the cigarette was real MENTHOL, like a MENTHOL cough drop.

            I switched to Newports from Marlboros for this coughing/quality/feeling difference.
            All the other brands you speak of have been disgusting for years.
            It’s not a race thing
            It’s Lorrilard Newports losing their quality slowly as they are bought by the manufactures of Camel, RJ Reynolds.
            Therefore, it is the corporations trying to kill everyone / cutting their budget.

          • Yess says:

            Camel bought them they are so gross. I would suggest quit or find a new cigarette Newport will never be the same. It’s not white or black people thing it is a camel thing. I wish they never bought them and changed them.

        • kei says:

          the point he’s trying to make is that this is just another ploy to kill off black people, which it is. Newports are primarily advertised in black magazines. See the Tuskegee syphilis experiment. See the lawsuit that Pepsi, or Coca Cola is going through right now, I forgot which one-their only defense was that they planned on selling the tainted bottles in Nigeria and not America. let’s not act like there hasn’t been a war on blacks since the beginning of time. accept the powers that be.

          • Big K says:

            Why would ciagarette manufacturers try to kill off black people. Then they lose a customer. Use your head. I’m white and I smoke Newports. Statistics show that 49.5 % of black people that smoke – smoke newports. It’s primarily a black persons cigarette, but is becoming more popular with whites too. Good freaking grief.

        I’m a white man that lives in Cincinnati OH, and I smoke new ports. Even my black friends smoke Marlboro. I didn’t know cigs where based upon race to who can smoke them. People like you that’s a racist black person, does and tries to make everything about race. Why would there be a secret plot to kill off black people? Bcuz you make up 13% of the population, 80% of prison population, 80% of welfare population, and 65% crime committed. If a terrorist group was trying to bring down America, why would they kill black people? That would be counter productive. Think before you speak, bcuz this racist shit is played out. The counterfeit business is bigger than the drug business. There is fake everything not just shit that black people like.

            Newports don’t taste the same, and I scrambled trying to find a replacement after being told they only changed the packaging. I may be a smoker, but I’m smart enough to know there’s a marked difference in what I’d been smoking for too many years.
            I’ve switched to Marlboro, and am happy with the taste.

          I was reading a comment of yours were u put up numbers and percentages the only number you got right well percentage you got right was that black people make up 13% of the population then you went on to say they make up 80% of the welfare system where are you getting your numbers from and your facts from because that couldn’t be farther from the truth there are way more white people in this country which means there is way more white people on welfare and yes most black people who smoke cigarettes smoke Newports that’s all the people who are saying they’re trying to take black people out with fake cigarettes not that I’m saying that’s the truth but that’s all they’re saying every time a black person tries to speak up about something being geared toward black people in a negative way it’s always a well you guys need to go away with all the racist stuff and stop making everything about race and then go on to allow some racist rhetoric to roll off your tongues Google your facts before you want to try to make someone look stupid because the only thing you do is end up making yourself look stupid to anyone who really knows the truth Trump is in the White House in white men like you feel like you could just say anything you want and people are supposed to just put up with it let’s not talk about your one black friend that smokes Marlboro or I’m white and I smoke Newports of course have you ever heard of collateral damage crack was put into the black communities but we all know white people who smoke crack so let’s not be ignorant to the fact of to take black people down they don’t care if some white trash get thrown out in the process

            You’re right! Where did Big K get his facts from the back of a crackerjack box??
            In fact, whites are the biggest beneficiaries when it comes to government safety-net programs like the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, commonly referred to as welfare.

            From U.S. Dept. of Agriculturel
            White people without a college degree ages 18 to 64 are the largest class of adults lifted out of poverty by such programs, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. The 2017 report stated that 6.2 million working-age whites were lifted above the poverty line in 2014 compared to 2.8 million blacks and 2.4 million Hispanics!

            Just over 40 percent of SNAP recipients are white. Another 25.7 percent are black, 10.3 percent are Hispanic, 2.1 percent are Asian and 1.2 percent are Native American, according to a 2015 Department of Agriculture report.

            US Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. Department of Commerce
            * Percent of welfare recipients who are white: 38.8 percent

            * Percent of welfare recipients who are Black: 39.8 percent

            No my facts are official, unlike Big k’s fake news!

      • Britta Cooper says:

        I work at a gas station in Lake Charles, Louisiana. I see a few hundred people buying cigarettes everyday. White people purchase just as many Newports or like you say, “Black people cigarettes” as Hispanics & blacks. The black & Hispanic people also purchase just as many as Marlboros, Camels, and Paul Malls as white people. Race has nothing to do with the statistics of cigarette sells.

          No they’re not. I thought so too. I have one left out of this pack I bought on January 6, 2017. I gave half to my nephew for his birthday and the other half I kept and smoke. Not only did I get the harsher inhale and irritation in my throat but I had a 7 layer salad and was unable to eat it because it was spicy hot or so I thought. I gave it to my sister and she was like “it’s not hot!!” It happened yesterday with non-spicy guacamole. And today with a ginger ale. I can still feel the irritation right now.

          So is there a lab I can get this one cigarette analyze???? People need to know. Just because cigarette smoking is an acceptable form of mass genocide does not mean I’m a damn fool to keep smoking corporates’ new poison additions.

      Simple my friend. It is being made at rj reynolds facility … Rj reynolds bought for the name just like BP bought Amoco for the ultimate fuels. With this in mind … The name “Cigarettes” may not be on the package because of copyright laws. The symbol is also different from the original package because of the same reason. Also, if the product is produced in a different facility, the odds of making the same taste because of the shared product lines at the plant. Voice your concerns with the RJ Reynolds company. The consumer number would be listed be on the package. It is the not the store’s fault. The store’s get from a warehouse courtesy of a transport truck.

    • Bambi Viacello says:

      HERE’S the answer. NEWPORT SMOKER’S–do you notice that you don’t get a buzz off of smoking a Newport anymore and that they also don’t ever advertise the nicotine content in a cigarette anymore. There’s a reason why. The tar levels are still high and the nicotine levels have dropped dramatically meaning you are smoking harder to achieve the same effect. ARE FSC CIGARETTES MAKING YOU SICK? Jeffrey Wigand’s agenda, post “The Insider”, is working closely with the FDA who have full control over tobacco. When I asked him personally (recently)about all the FSC cigarette illnesses, he denied knowing anything about it. That’s funny, two years earlier in an e-mail I sent him that HE responded to, he thanked me for bringing the FSC cigarette illnesses to his attention and that he would personally notify Dr. L a w r e n c e D e y t o n (HEAD LIAR @ FDA TOBACCO DIVISION). Wigand is a LIAR and is in bed with the FDA who are deliberately lacing cigarettes with new FSC chemicals to induce unorthodox illnesses to coerce smokers into quitting. Smokers in other countries are NOT experiencing this. WIGAND, the FDA and LAWRENCE DEYTON are EVIL bastards and should be convicted of crimes against American citizens. The needle is too good for these filthy scumbags.
      Here is why FSC cigarettes are making you sick. The signing of the new Tobacco Safety Act of 2009 by the IMF- CEO Barry Soetoro gives most Tobacco Corporations and their affiliated “parent” companys complete immunity from any resulting public sickness or illness as a result of any “modifications” to their product. Also, they are not required by law to notify the public of any related illness nor is any research required by the “government” pertaining to any illness claims by the public ( under Sec. 909 Records and Reports, articles (A) 3-6) and Sec 911 “Modified Risk Tobacco Products”) More than 27,000 smokers worldwide have signed a petition since the implementation of world-wide FSC or “Fire Safety Compliance” laws claiming a strong metallic taste, headaches, sores in their mouth, nausea and diarrhea. It has of course, fallen on deaf ears and has been completely ignored by our World Bank and IMF “government” and of course, corporations within the Tobacco Industry. But this…is just the tip of the iceburg. In 2000, Phillip Morris began using what they called “fire safe technology” in their Merit brand of cigarettes. Once again, this was done without any public notice whatsoever, just like the current FSC laws. They were sued by The Department of Justice in 2004 which forced them to change to the newer “government” standard of FSC cigarettes soon to be implemented for the first time in New York in 2005. Phillip Morris’ version obviously did not contain all of the unnecessary toxic metallic nanoparticulates. It’s interesting to note that the state with the highest amount of population within the US at the time, was the first to implement these newly formed FSC standards. Ironically, FSC cigarettes are called Reduced Ignition Propensity (or RIP) cigarettes by the Tobacco Industry. In US Patent 7,640,936 filed September of 2005, Phillip Morris scientists explain in depth, the introduction of metal oxide nano-particulates to their products. The same type US patent was recently granted to RJ Reynolds in 2010 (#‪20100122708‬). Note that these patents were granted AFTER US-CEO Barry Soetoro signed the Tobacco Safety Act of 2009, supposedly giving the FDA( Dr. Lawrence Deyton) and the US “government” control over tobacco additives. The nanoparticles are incorporated into tobacco filler material cigarette paper and/or filter material, according to Muslim inventors Sharyar Rabiei, Firooz Rasouli and Mohammed Hajaligol. The metal oxide particulates consist of a combination of copper oxide, cerium oxide, titanium oxide, iron oxide and Yttrium, a radioactive rare-earth element… less than one micron in diameter, meaning they easily pass through the filter and are inhaled. This combination can then be applied to the cigarette paper or filler using an adhesive such as VINYL ACETATE, forming bands along the length of the cigarette. This toxic metallic mix, supposedly cuts down on carbon monoxide emissions from cigarette smoke, but in my opinion, there’s a far more sinister agenda. Smokers are now inhaling a mixture of toxic metallic nano-particulates which explains the metallic taste and sicknesses expressed by so many smokers to date. Nanoparticulates are more deeply ingested on a cellular level, meaning once they’re in the cell, they cannot be removed by conventional detoxifying methods and the above mentioned are known to break cells DNA strands and cause mutations. The result will be a myriad of new, aggressive forms of cancer which do not respond at all to conventional chemotherapy “treatment”. This, in combination with IMF/Soetoro proposed budget cuts to water treatment facilities and newly relaxed EPA standards on agricultural toxic waste disposal and the numerous “profit poisons” in our food will lead to a rapid decline in human population and health. The “official” FSC website conveniently refuses to mention these toxic metallic nanoparticulates. The question is…why are these now being added under the disguise of FDA tobacco (Dr. Lawrence Deyton)regulation via “The Tobacco Safety Act of 2009? Please research the above patent numbers for yourself. Obama gave the FDA (Dr. Lawrence Deyton) the power to do this.

      Slick asses selling in West Point, MS at all stores even mainstream stores.
      Went to buy a pack at Shell on Main St. and cashier handed me a pack and I looked at it funny and she said “Oh you want the real ones”, I looked at her and said “Oh you know”? Their own worker said “Yes”. My suggestion is don’t buy them and I guarantee you the company will make the wrong right.

      I work for the Newport company and the only thing we changed was the word menthol to cigarettes. So for you being a retailer selling newports with the gold trim around the emblem. Those are fake, if they don’t have the word cigarettes on them there fake, if you can feel the word Newport it’s fake. Finally out newports exports are straight white nothing on it but the newport stamp there are no lines. So buddy your selling fakes to people and thinking because you trust the vendor your buying them from their real. Your wrong.

        Youre full of shit. You probably dont even work for the company. I spoke with them this morning and they told me they have several variations of packs now. All the things you say indicate they packs are “fake” are things they described to me on the phone that have changed. I also informed them someone was claiming to work for them was spreading lies about the “fake packs” and they said anyone who works for the company is aware of the changes and variations.

      Listen Dum Dum, there are counterfits floating all over cities. Even some of the store owners don’t know,l because the delivery comes from their distributer and who knows WTF he’s doing or where he’s getting the cigs from. The other possibility is that the RJR company blends the tobacco a different way or whatever it is, all of these people who are saying the cig tastes different damn skippy should know what their cigs taste llike. My family used to buy from a health product store. The product we purchased all of a sudden was being sent out with a new label. We tried to let the company know the taste of the oil we had purchased for years was not the same, if anything it was much stronger and was making some of us sick. The company head stated the product was the same that they merely changed the label. Bull Sh”t! There was definitely a strong noticeable difference in taste and strength and all else. Companies can say WTF they want, the cig smokers know their brands taste and they notice the difference. So the only one gullible here appears to be you, if you believe everything these big corporations say!!! rather than take the word of people who’ve been smoking their same cigarette for decades. Get a grip dizzy lizzy unless you’re working on behalf of RJR which might quite possibly explain why every few comments we see someone trying to convince all of these Newport smokers that’s it all in their head. It’s freaking insulting to say the least!!!!

    Everyone is so concerned about the packaging on newports and how different it is. Yes I have noticed a difference in the packaging. But the biggest difference is not the packaging itself its the warning label on the packaging. I have both the “old” and “new” packs and the warning labels aren’t the same- among the other differences. Nonetheless a cigarette is still a cigarette. It my be good for the moment but you’ll run into problems later. If all of you are so concerned that they are fake, switch your brand. Menthols are still menthols. At least you won’t have to worry about smoking fake cigarettes if AND when you switch to another brand. Who cares if the blend has changed. If you’re that pressed about it, then you got bigger problems on your hands like having to deal with complications in life later…
    P. S for all of you who say that they’re fakes and they’re not, list CREDIBLE SOURCES that you can put on the forum so other people can check it out. CREDIBLE SOURCES MEANS NO GOSSIP SITES OR ANYTHING OF THAT MATTER. Don’t forget your “internet 101” people. Just like these “fake cigarettes ” and “fake purses” that are being sold from time to time, there are alot of information on the web that are FAKE as well. People can lie and misconstrue information on the internet alot easier today….

      Good phucking grief, where has the intelligence gone! It’s not about BS on the internet, India and Arab stores have a distinct history of selling cigs that taste like sh’t. From what we hear, there is not enough FBI manpower to combat the massive amount of fake cigarettes that’s flooded them market. The question people on this blog should ask is if you yourself are working for RJR. Did they put you here as a plant help to help defend their cigarette brands. and dispute barrage of folks saying the Newport Cigarettes they’re smoking today are either fakes, or the ingredients were changed. You can say WTF you want. People know the taste of cigarettes they’ve smoked for years! Have to wonder if you’re being paid by RJR, otherwise why are you so staunchly dismissive of all of what most of these people are saying about Newport Cigs. Must be a reason. Would seem like the average reader would say that if this many folks are complaining about the same brand cig, then maybe they might have a valid point! So the question people need to ask is are you working for RJR??????

I have both boxes and warning me of the effect cause by smoking is a hell of a lot more realistic than (quit smoking not it greatly reduces health risk) so how do updating a box come with rewording the surgeon general???

  39. From a white guy says:

    Alright guys I know there’s been a lot of confusion on the new look and taste of Newport Pleasure cigarettes they are still made by the same company Newport, originally introduced in 1957 by the Lorillard Tobacco Company, is a brand of menthol cigarettes owned by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. Now from what I got from the website at Newport Pleasure is that they are going to be decreasing by 10% in the amount of nicotine that they’re placing in their cigarettes and to the black guy that stated that new ports are against black people because these are the cigarettes black people smoke is absolutely correct they targeted black people and this is what I found In the mid-1980s, Newport began an advertising campaign that courted African Americans in urban areas. In two years, Newports became the fifth most popular cigarette on the market.[ A lawsuit against the Lorillard Tobacco Company alleged that in the late 1960s, company vans were used to make regular trips to housing projects where free Newport cigarettes were given to children and babies.[4] Evidence showed that the deceased plaintiff died of lung cancer, but that she started smoking at 9 years old after receiving free Newport cigarettes near the black playground.[5][6] The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court upheld $35 million of damages against Lorillard Tobacco Company while reversing other issues of damages

    • From a white guy says:

      Sorry correction they’re not changing the amount of nicotine in the cigarettes but changing 10% of the blend so it’s going to make it taste just a little bit different but they’re not fake they are the real deal and also please look at the bottom of your cigarette pack to see if it has the state tax identification if it doesn’t then yes you would be buying fake or counterfeit cigarettes

      Wake the phuck up people. Arabs and India stores sell the worst tasting Newport Cigs. What you people have to do is Ignore dummies like this who live in flake land and make a note of what store you are buying the fake tasting cigarettes from, who is selling it, who there distributor is and send the information to the FBI. Either that or try purchasing from a more reputable store. Alot of deliveries have a 3rd party middleman who is their distributor, so there is no telling if the distributor is honest or making a deal for himself on the side. What you can’t convince all of these people is that they don’t know how their cigarette brand tastes after smoking it for years, some even decades! There are hundreds of thousands of fake cigarettes on the market. Check the latest FBI report for Facts! Some of personally wouldn’t be surprised that RJR did something, whether they’re blending the tobacco different or the ingredients are different, would surprise No One! The fact is that smokers are saying that the Newports on the market today taste like SH”T

    Not only the packaging is different, but the actual cigarette itself is different too. The new ones have rings around the white part and the old ones didn’t.

      Why, when all you have to do is use your educated common sense. Crazy, im black and a terrist attack is far from my mind. I’m happy they did this for myself and my mom and auntie. I lost a grandmother to cancer. I’m just saying people.

    They took the nicotine out of them, be thankful. I been smoking for over 20years and wanted to stop so badly. But my depression never let that happen. Now we hsve a chance at life. And more control over when we smoke. Be greatful. My first time smoking the new ones i had a really really bad headache for 3 days that was just withdrawals. Now I’m so much better. I woke up today and didn’t smoke for the first 5 hours i was woke. Beautiful! !!! Notice the change. Sometimes when we don’t smoke for so long you get dizzy or a head rush soon as you do. That don’t happen anymore. I believe i will be a none smoker of newports by next year. And i appreciate the lifesaver.

  51. RIPnewports says:

    Talked to a tobacco store owner in AZ and he said the new packages should be nationwide by the months end. He told me to not waste time looking for them. I still tried but came up empty.

    Newport smokers don’t have to call the company to know the taste has definitely changed. For those of you freaking out like myself, Marbolro Menthols are a decent alternative. Though they will never taste like that one of a kind Newport pleasure, it’s much better than whatever’s in the newly packaged newports. Plus, fuck them for doing such loyal customers so bogus. They’re about to lose all their business.

    Tracy might be right. Maybe we can use this as motivation to stop. If not for your health, for your wallet.

    St.Louis mo has been affected also and for every body that is a smoker make sure u get hold too all the old package and a new package keep all of your empty one. and compare. Then let your doctors,know about this change keep everything write your congressman and for us that don’t smoke we need to be worried too second hand smoke has all ways been a concern.this is Nov 2016 and we STILL live in a world that only cares about that all mighty $$$$. so Everybody keep your evidence it will set you and your family free days,months,years. later Just think about what JONHSON AND JONHSON did to woman for so many years so to all smoker you know what you know and for the company you know what you know so keep your job and sleep peacefully.

    On July 15, 2014 Reynolds American offered to buy the Lorillard tobacco company for $27.4 billion.[8] As a result of the completion of this merger on June 12, 2015, the Newport brand is now property of R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company.[9] However, a legal notice filed July 29, 2015 said that Reynolds must get a county permit to make Newports at its Tobaccoville plant, so for 18 months ITG Brands will make Newports and Reynolds will make three brands it sold……please people do a little research!! This took all of five minutes to find

    It’s not fake new ports. The company just changed distributors. That’s why the packaging and taste of the cigarette is different. Look it up js

    The taste is different , the menthol breeze wasn’t there .What do that got to do with changing the packaging – I buy soft pack and if they don’t say cigarettes on the pack I’m not buying them. I get Newport coupons in the mail every other month They said nothing about changing the packaging . I will go back to smoking Kools

  66. Anon says:

    1st – at least one of my local gas stations, the Walmart, the price copper and the local smoke shop franchise “smokers choice” (there are 3 in my town and all three do) sell the packs with gold and no “cigarette” printed on the package. A coworker brought this to my attention, and I did notice a difference between these and a pack of ones with black on it. I’m having difficulty finding the real ones around here, and when I’ve spoken to the shops they all say the same thing, “oh, that’s crazy. No, these are definitely real. We wouldn’t have them if they were fake.”

    Second, are you guys serious? First thing you do is make this a race thing? fucking hell… They are selling fake Marlboros, and this is a monetary thing, not a color issue. *everything* thing isn’t a race war, or a gender war.. Everyone needs to chill the hell out

    Is this true are there fake Newports out there or did Newport change the packaging I really need to do this because for some reason I’ve been smoking a lot more lately and I’m worried I’ve had three heart attacks I’m trying stop smoking so much but for some reason it’s looking more and you please let me know is this true or did Newport just change their packaging

  71. ANON says:

    Fellows, this is the lowdown. Reynolds bought the Newport brand from Lorillard 2 years ago. Lorillard continued making them for Reynolds until about a year ago. They stockpiled a lot of Newports until tney received permission and the equipments to make their owns Newport. The stockpile has run out and Reynolds are now making the cigarettes. They changed the package and the way they are made. Therefor, resulting in a different taste. Different process, different taste. My guess, what everyone is saying are fake cigarettes are the one being made now by Reynolds. RJR, the maker of Camels.

  72. ANON says:

    If you still like the old Newport, try ITG’s brand dark green Maverick. It was made originally by Lorillard which is now ITG. They are located in the same building and use the same tobacco process. What I hear, it is almost identical to the taste of the old Newports.

  73. DUH says:

    OMG he is saying its a conspiracy because the majority of black people that smoke, smoke Newports. Meaning that the industries is trying to rip them off or target them for some reason. It’s not racist or prejudice or trying to start anything. He’s saying someone is out to get black people. But I think its because the company was sold and you have been smoking old cigarettes until they ran out and now you are smoking the freshly made ones.

Please educate yourselves before you speak. It’s embarrassing.

    • Ray says:

      I don’t know about the video in question above being real “fake” cigs or not but what i do know is this problem isn’t just in america this happens in the uk and the eu. They source the tobacco and go to work making the packaging you can find damn near any major american brand faked from marlboro to newports as well as whatever brand is popular in the region they are selling to. With cigarette prices what they are in SF i can understand why ppl would want cheaper cigs. We mostly have chinese cigs around here and not so much with the fakes but it’s not something that the mega corporations are gonna be able to stop. If you’re lucky enough to get fake cigarettes from eastern europe then i don’t think it would be something to worry about health wise but if they are from china i would be worried about arsenic levels and heavy metal in the tobacco since they have no environment laws.

  82. sweetsavage says:

    For all those thinking the packaging makes no difference, they did a study of long time loyal coke/diet coke & pepsi/diet pepsi. If diet pepsi is in a coke bottle, people believe they’re drinking real coke. Even people that claim they can’t stand pepsi and would know the taste of coke anywhere were tricked by switched packaging! So whether you want to believe it or not, if your eyes and mind are telling you its different (through packaging only) your mouth and throat will BELIEVE it’s different (fake or changed recipe)

    • Bria says:

      I had never even seen of heard anything about change i just noticed the difference in taste and smell so i came looking for answers to see if me and my father were the only one obviously not..later the warning on the package now say may contain carbon monoxide

  83. Moses Evans says:

    These Newport’s have different side effects like like one person said different maker different process but why change the process Newport’s are loosing sales. And they are probably having China make them so that’s why it’s different tastes and everything else. A lawsuit is in order.

  84. Mike Barlow says:

    Why would the pack change after all these years, you ask. Why not? It’s done so before. If you recall, in ~2010, the pack actually said “Menthol Box” and the soft pack said “Menthol Kings” and 100s “Menthol Box 100s”. And then one day, it said “Cigarettes”. So it’s perfectly reasonable to assume they’d alter the pack again slightly at some point. I think it looks better without text and haven’t noticed a difference at all.

    This is like the Mandela effect, except it’s not memory.

    The New Newport Is without the word cigarette on it and the company announced on November 2016 so anything after that they will tried to sell it to you. You have to request the new ones because they change does not mean they fake . You need company orientation go to their page and stop lying to people. Facts are Facts !! Company change their label and that is it!.

    I just bought these fake newports and yeah mostly African Americans smoke them although I am white. Around here they are often called nigcigs nigports or nigarettes, but it really doesn’t matter because these are potentially deadly to everyone. I bought these cigarettes at rite aid because they were almost two dollars cheaper than the gas station. My friend and I both got a pack and when we sparked one I looked at her and said does yours taste odd? She did yeah but thought it was just her. It kinda tasted like a marb light that someone sprayed with listerine pocket spray. It’s not at all okay.

    Fake cigs and diffent taste

    What happened to the word cigarettes on the packages ?

  100. Mary Kremer says:

    I live in Philadelphia, PA and since the cigarette tax went up, Newport’s have averaged around $10.00-$10.50. Now I have purchased fake Newport’s on the street before and that is my fault for buying off a street person. This morning, however, I went to a local neighborhood store and paid $16.00 for 2 packs of Newport 100’s. I said to the cashier, “$16.00 what are they fake?” He says, “No they are from New York.” Now I do know it is illegal for stores to sell cigarettes from other states. It was early none of the other stores are open, the Walgreen’s was out of Newport and at $8.00 a pack who is going to pass that up. I wasn’t thinking that a store would sell fake cigarettes. I get home and my husband points out that there is no tax stamp on the package. The package looks identical, the only difference is the SURGEON GENERAL’S WARNING: Cigarette Smoke Contains Carbon Monoxide, while the real pack says all that about smoking is dangerous to pregnant women and the fetus. They even taste normal. Does anyone know if cigarettes without a tax stamp are definitely fake? I have only purchased cigarettes here 2 other times and everything was normal.

  101. Kai says:

    Check the official FBI website or google the FBI and fake cigs. You will find out what you are looking. Word to the wise, stay away from Arab and India stores selling those tasteless cigs. Better that you deal with a more reputable store or reputable chain store and buy your cigs from there. Either that, hold onto your cigs, report it to the FBI as some stores carry a number where you can directly report it. Make your feelings know to the RJR company or the last resort is you may have to try and switch brands.

  102. This is a very good tip especially to those fresh to the blogosphere.
    Brief but very accurate information… Thank you for sharing this one.
    A must read post!

  103. Regular smokers always recognize the fakeness of cigs very easily. Fake cigs are so common now in the market, someone should find some proper solutions.
