RJ Reynolds is test marketing new smokeless tobacco products in Ohio, Oregon and Indiana that are drawing fire from critics. The product comes in a dissolvable form that resembles candy. The product comes in the form of minty tobacco strips that resemble breath strips and dissolvable tablets that look and taste like candy. Just one dissolvable tablet could deliver 300% more nicotine than a single cigarette, reported CNN’s Carol Costello.
