Back in the "good ole days". Another sleazy message from the tobacco pushers of America. Smoke Kent, see how much safer they are. Big time seller, right on.

Where can I get some of those? I'm pretty tired of the morning "cough a gray loogie up in the shower" routine.

What they didn't tell you at the time: that their "micronite" filter contained asbestos, which meant that Kents were likely much more toxic than any other brand. Look it up.
