Marlboro in Canada edit

Philip Morris sold the Canadian rights to the “Marlboro” name to Imperial Tobacco Canada in 1932. After the brand’s successful American relaunch in the 1950s which later became well known to Canadians through exposure to the brand’s international sponsorships and advertising Philip Morris tried several legal manoeuvres in attempting to reacquire the Canadian rights, to no avail. Imperial Tobacco continues to sell a line of cigarettes under the Marlboro name in Canada, albeit with very different packaging from that of the Philip Morris product. Philip Morris retains the rights to the “rooftop” trade dress and other elements of Marlboro’s branding which were developed after the 1932 sale, and has historically used that trade dress in Canada in combination with the names “Matador” or occasionally “Maverick” for a line of Virginia blend cigarettes. 14 15

In 2006, Philip Morris International’s Canadian affiliate Rothmans, Benson & Hedges introduced a new product with the “rooftop” trade dress, and marked as being the “World Famous Imported Blend”, but not bearing any actual brand name. This led to a legal challenge from Imperial, contending that the new packaging created customer confusion by merely suggesting the Marlboro brand, thereby infringing on Imperial’s Canadian trademark rights. Canada’s Federal Court of Appeal ruled in favour of Imperial in June 2012. The judgment noted that Canadian regulations which (in most cases) prohibit the public display of tobacco products at retail locations i.e., customers must ask for a brand by name exacerbated the situation, as there were now two products that customers might be referring to when asking for “Marlboro”. 14 Though PMI is expected to appeal, shortly after the ruling it began using the brand name “Rooftop” on packaging for the previously unbranded cigarettes. 15

Electronic cigarettes won’t help smokers quit, study claims – cbs news

Using an electronic cigarette won’t make you any more likely to quit smoking actual cigarettes, according to a new study.

In a new research letter published March 24 in JAMA Internal Medicine, researchers at the University of California San Francisco surveyed the same group of about 950 smokers in November 2011 and 2012 and asked them about their smoking habits. They found those who tried e cigarettes were no more likely to quit than those who hadn’t.

For the baseline survey, participants were asked if they had used electronic cigarettes in the past 30 days (even once) how many conventional cigarettes they smoked per day time to first cigarette (less than or more than 30 minutes after waking each day) and whether they intended to quit smoking with the next six months, if at all.

Only 88 participants said they used e cigarettes, which are metallic tubes that allow liquid nicotine to be converted into a flavored inhalable vapor without the use of combustion.

Doctor s Jon LaPook and Holly Phillips join “CBS This Morning Saturday” to discuss the top medical news of the week.

Participants were asked the same questions at the one year follow up, with only those answering both sets of questions included in the study.

The researchers found e cigarette smokers at baseline were not significantly less likely to quit smoking regular cigarettes one year later than people who did not use the products.

While 13.5 percent of the total study pool quit smoking, only nine of the 88 e cigarette smokers quit.

“There was no association between having tried an e cigarette and quitting smoking at one year follow up,” study author Dr. Rachel A. Grana, a postdoctoral scholar at UCSF School of Medicine, told CBS News’ Adriana Diaz.

E cigarette smokers overall did not express more intent to quit in their initial baseline interviews than other adults surveyed. E cigarette use also did not reduce the number of regular cigarettes smoked.

The popularity of electronic cigarettes is raising questions about how safe they actually are. Jeff Glor reports.

While the study had limitations in the small numbers of participants, the authors said the research adds evidence that e cigarettes won’t make more people likely to quit. They also suggested regulators should prohibit advertising e cigarettes as a way to help people quit smoking until scientific evidence shows that’s the case.

“Because e cigarettes are unregulated, consumers do not know what they are putting into their bodies and there have been no long term studies of the health effects,” said Grana.

This isn’t the first study warning that e cigarettes may not as effective at stopping smoking as proponents have said. Earlier this month, a study in JAMA Pediatrics also from UCSF researchers concluded that e cigarettes may be a “gateway” to smoking real cigarettes for middle and high school students, based on increasing rates gleaned from surveys conducted in 2011 and 2012 on separate groups of students.

That study was met with criticisms from experts who said the study authors may have had “an axe to grind” and that the study’s conclusions were too broad.

Unlike that study, this research followed the same participants for a year, but the new research was met with similar criticisms over its limitations.

“We need solid data that’s based on solid science before we make decisions,” Dr. Michael Siegel, a community health researcher at the Boston University School of Public Health who was not involved with the study, told Reuters Health. The study didn’t look at why the smokers used e cigarettes, or how long they used them. “I hope no one would take this research letter and make any conclusion based on it,” he said.

“This study has problems,” Dr. Tom Glynn, director of Cancer Science and Trends at the American Cancer Society, told the Washington Post. “What’s interesting is even the authors talk about the limitations.”

Uncertainties over health effects from e cigarettes have led to bans on using the products in public places in major cities including Los Angeles, Chicago and New York.
