The Honorable Jim Sasser
United States Senate
Washington, D.C. 20510
Dear Senator Sasser:
Surgeon General Richmond has asked us to thank you for your recent
letter, in which you enclose correspondence from Dr. Ira T.
Lapides. Dr. Lapides suggests that legislation be passed requiring
a listing of ingredients on cigarette packages and that increased
attention be paid to the use of tobacco additives in cigarettes.
The Public Health Cigarette Act specifically precludes the
requirement of any information on the cigarette pack other than
the Surgeon General's warning. As you know, only Congress has the
authority to change this law to require a listing of cigarette
ingredients on each package
Dr. Lapides expresses concern about the potential hazard of
chemical additives in tobacco products. Propanedial, glycerol,
diethylene glycol, triethylene glycol, and sorbitol are among the
most commonly added humectants. The use of these humectants in
tobacco products has raised concern among researchers. The
glycols, and especially diethylene glycol, are suspected to
contribute to the smoker's risk of developing bladder cancer. In
addition, flavor additives, such as licorice and cocoa, are used
in the production of low-tar. The selection of flavor additives
from the GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) list and the analysis
of these substances for toxicity or other biological effects are
not required by law, but, we hope, are carried out voluntarily by
cigarette manufacturers. Additionally, under Section 403 of P.L.
9-626, the Department has recently been directed to conduct or
arrange for the conduct of a study of the relative, health risks associated
with smoking cigarettes of varying levels of tar, nicotine, and carbon
monoxide, and the health risks of smoking cigarettes containing
any substance commonly added to commercially manufactured
We hope this information is helpful to you in responding to your

OUR NEW OLD BLEND
As with any avalanche of lemons into one's life, survivors attempt to make lemonade and so it is with the Gatlinburlier Tobacconist. G&B Tobaccos new licensing and stature as a Tobacco Manufacturer now presents many opportunities for our loyal long-time customers. Not only does this new status make the Gatlinburlier the only truly legal tobacco retailer in the country, but it opens opportunities for us to expand our lines, since our access to specialty tobaccos has been vastly expanded. We plan to offer special deals on our new products as we produce new blends and attempt to improve some of our existing blends.
Tobacco being a natural product varies in characteristics year to year. It takes constant adjusting to keep blends consistent in taste, color, and burning qualities. In many cases blenders keep several years worth of tobaccos on hand so as to phase out one years product while phasing in another years crop to minimize the changes in the qualities of the blends. Over the 37 years that we have blended tobaccos some of our suppliers have left the business and other tobacco components have changed so much that we think we need to make adjustments to a few of our blends.
Gatlin-Burley our Americanized English once contained a very special Green River Valley tobacco which became unavailable. Given our new contacts within the industry we now have access to this rare tobacco, and have re blended this great blend, with just a touch of Latakia to meet its original qualities.
Gatlin-Burley was a blend created to keep the smoker's interest and encourage the maturation of the smoker's own tastes. Thirty-seven years ago it was our flag ship. It was an Americanized English that seemed to change taste as the smoker's pallet change over the course of one day and over the course of many weeks.
As a special short term offer we will send you a two ounce bag of this fabulous rebirth of greatness for only $5.95.
This extraordinary blend mixes fabulously with our Cades Cove Cavendish and our Chimney Smoke to make it even more tame for the American taste. For those looking to find a slightly more mature taste than is offered by our "natural aromatics" - Gatlin-Burley is the tobacco blend they are seeking, but "Made Even Better®".
2oz for only $5.95
