This is a very interesting Company to me. I own Stock with them mainly because it fell so hard. But also because they are a Tobacco Research Company. Their business is to find medical uses for Tobacco & make it safer & less addictive. I'm sure they will play a big role with the FDA. Here's the link...........

Company Mission

Star Scientific, Inc. ("Star") and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Star Tobacco, Inc. ("ST", and together with Star, the "Company") are technology-oriented tobacco companies with a mission to reduce toxins in tobacco leaf and tobacco smoke. The Company is engaged in:

(1) the development, implementation and licensing of scientific technology for the curing of tobacco so as to substantially prevent the formation of carcinogenic toxins present in tobacco and tobacco smoke, primarily the tobacco-specific nitrosamines ("TSNAs");

(2) the manufacturing, sales, marketing and development of very low-nitrosamine smokeless tobacco products that also carry enhanced warnings beyond those required by the Surgeon General, including Stonewalldry snuff, ARIVA compressed powdered tobacco cigalett pieces, and STONEWALL Hard Snuff. The Company also manufacturers a very low-nitrosamine smokeless tobacco product (Interval) for B&W which is currently in test market; and

(3) the manufacture and sale of four discount cigarette brands, SPORT , MAINSTREET , VEGAS and G-SMOKE, which have historically generated the vast majority of the Company's revenues.


Quote:
The StarCured tobacco curing process, as discussed herein, involves the control of certain conditions in tobacco curing barns, and in certain applications, uses microwave and/or electronic beam technology. The StarCured process substantially prevents the formation in the tobacco leaf of the carcinogenic TSNAs, which are widely believed by medical and scientific experts to be among the most abundant and powerful cancer-causing toxins present in tobacco and in tobacco smoke.

Wonderful idea, Cameron. You know we can have our water tested, and our soil tested. I wonder if there is a place to have our homegrown tobacco tested. I would love for us to disprove the thing about homegrown being full of molds.
