In 1994, United States Congressman Harry Waxman held a famous series of Congressional hearings. The presidents and CEOs of the seven largest American tobacco companies were subpoenaed to testify before Waxman's committee. On April 14, 1994, after more than six hours of sharp questioning by members of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health and the Environment, the seven CEOs steadfastly refused to budge under stringent questioning that they knew cigarettes were addictive. Each stated under oath that they did not believe nicotine was addictive. Within months, a perjury investigation was initiated by the Department of Justice. Ultimately, the Department of Justice claimed it did not have enough evidence to prosecute for perjury because the CEOs testified under oath that they b...

"An international rights group is pushing the federal government and the tobacco industry to take further steps to protect children working on U.S. tobacco farms. A report released Wednesday by Human Rights Watch claims that children as young as 7 are sometimes working long hours in fields harvesting nicotine- and pesticide-laced tobacco leaves under sometimes hazardous conditions.

Human Rights Watch details findings from interviews with more than 140 children working on farms in North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia, where a majority of the country's tobacco is grown."* The Young Turks hosts Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola (TYT University) break i...

(15 Nov 2017) LEADIN: Cigarettes and molasses tobacco are flowing into the Gaza Strip legally for the first time in a decade. STORYLINE: This tobacco shop is going to do more business from now on. Cigarettes, which are hugely popular in Gaza, are now back at an affordable price. And it has been a long time coming. Shipments have been arriving legally for the first time in a decade, and tobacconists are delighted. The shipments are now overseen by the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority, which assumed control of Gaza's only commercial crossing with Israel earlier this month from Hamas. Since taking over Gaza in 2007, Hamas has imported tobacco products through a network of underground smuggling tunnels between Gaza and Egypt. This enabled Hamas to control the price, raising them...

Gaza smokers say the costs of cigarettes and tobacco have increased by more than 200 percent - since Egypt launched a campaign against militants in northern Sinai. Egyptian troops have begun demolishing homes along the country's border with the Gaza Strip, as they seek to close hundreds of smuggling tunnels. A dramatic explosion carried out by the Egyptian army destroys this two storey house in the area of the Rafah border. The demolition campaign began after an October assault on a checkpoint near Rafah killed 31 soldiers, the deadliest attack on Egypt's army in modern history. There has been no claim of responsibility yet for the attack. Palestinians had been using tunnels to smuggle many kinds of goods especially cigarettes and tobacco. But now - amid the army operation - pric...
