Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Sunday, August 02, 2021

Amid the noise over potentially impending legalization, product designers wonder how best to package newly over-the-counter marijuana joints.

The concepts are professionally done, but erroneously antiseptic-looking. The clear-plastic bagging and sealed foil pockets are fine for medical marijuana, but that’s not going to be the primary selling market for these roll-ups. Because smokes are smokes, we all know what the corporate-crop rumors will beget at gas stations and bodegas across the land:

So those proposed pharmacy-product cigarettes are charmingly naive, when you just know that Philip Morris is primed to slap its Marlboro brandname onto endless packs of wacky tabacky. A natural complimentary offering to an established tobacco market. No sense in re-inventing the wheel.

  1. Why does it have a filter?

  2. Because that’s where Marlboro can pack in additives like nicotine and tar, just like they do for tobacco cigs.

    Oh, and also because this is a joke…
