Philipp Morris is voluntarily publicly encouraging people to stop smoking.

They also claim to be planning to stop selling cigarettes.

Just phishing for ethics?

They also have several (if not numerous) products that are not cigarettes. As the world slides away from smoking traditional tobacco products, it's foolish to try and double down on your existing product line. Sell your cigarettes while encouraging people to use alternative methods for smoking, and then sell said methods.

If you have a 'program' that people are following that pushes alternatives, those people are likely to use the alternatives you introduce them to.


Also, FYI. AMA means "Ask Me Anything", it's meant to be used when you have a level of knowledge and/or expertise. Forum members will ask you questions and you will answer them. (For more info, read this: Ask Me Anything | Know Your Meme)


Edit: Removed the word cigarette three times and replaced it to avoid horrific repetition.
