Hero Tobacco Companies Develop Secret Code for 'Light Cigarettes'

The NYT reveals the secret modern cigarette color coding key: "red and dark green for regular and menthol; blue, gold and light green for light cigarettes; and silver and orange for ultra lights." You'll never trick us into mistakenly smoking a full flavor Camel when only an ultra light will do, Nancy Pelosi! [Pic via]
