Tobacco firms slammed over report on candy-flavored cigar smoking by teens

Two-fifths of middle and high school smokers in the U.S. have used cigars and cigarettes manufactured to taste like fruit or candy, according to the first government study into the popularity of such products among adolescents.

Published Tuesday in the Journal of Adolescent Health, the study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that about 1 in 30 of the sixth-to-12th-graders interviewed said they smoke compact sweet-flavored cigars, with the proportion increasing for high school seniors to nearly 1 in 12.
