I am sure many of you have heard about the smoking bans from public areas. Have you heard about the FSC (Fire Safe Cigarettes)? At some point in December I noticed my cigarette was different as it was hard to keep lit. Apparently the State of Illinois has brought forth a law that requires all cigarettes sold within it's borders to be fire safe as of January 1, 2008. And Illinois is just one of the many states that have decided that it's citizens cannot decide on what type of cigarette to smoke."
