n. Newport, introduced in 1957, is a brand of menthol cigarettes produced by Lorillard Tobacco Company of Greensboro, North Carolina, United States. Newport’s comprise about 35 percent of menthol cigarette sales in the US. Newport’s have gained a commanding share of the black market; a 2005 survey stated that 49.5% of cigarette sales to blacks were Newport’s. Newport Classic full flavor cigarettes were promoted for many years as a cigarette that allows you to "Enjoy full flavor menthol, without drowning out pure tobacco taste." In the mid 1980s, Newport began an advertising campaign that courted African Americans in urban areas. In two years, Newport’s became the fifth most popular cigarette on the market. A 1998 Massachusetts Department of Public Health report indicated that Newport’s alongside unfiltered Camel cigarettes contained the highest levels of nicotine in cigarettes on the market. In the following six years, Lorillard Tobacco increased the amount of nicotine in Newport’s by 10%. Not just blacks or wiggers smoke them. Get over yourselves.
