Atleast they are biodegradable. It's the fiberglass component of cigarette butts that pose the long term threat to the environment. In particular marine wildlife.

Nicotine is highly water soluble, after toxins are leached out, all that is left is a small tea bag. Work it out, use some common sense pls.

It seems that half the goody goody anti smoking lobby are using such a barrage of spin and misinformation its a wonder, more poeple dont question whether they are tobacco company stooges trying to keep people on the fags.
