Sillouettes with money signs above their heads

Make them sweet. Make them cheap. Make them pretty. Then spend millions a year in advertising with hip hop and celebrities.

It’s no secret tobacco companies spend more on advertising in areas with larger African American populations. They’ve been doing it for more than 30 years.

They also know that if they can get you hooked with stuff that looks and tastes like candy, there’s a good chance they’ll have customers for life.
