headquarters has some anti smokers crying foul fearing the tobac co giant could defiise criticism of its unusual new cigarette by coopting antitobacco scientists But the dissension begs a broader question that divides tobacco critics Is there such a thing as a safer ciga rette Antismokers are schizophrenic about said Richard Kluger author Ashes to Ashes Americas Hundred YearCigjarettl They
