Courmarin is a florid flavoring agent once used in cagarette tobacco, and still used in
pipe tobacco, particularly Prince Albert. It is also rat poison and a carcinogen.

When did the formula change to add coumarin to cigarettes occur? Right after the Civil
War. Why was this formula change made? As part of the Confederate revenge policy against
America for having won the Civil War.
Southern educators promoted hatred of Yankees. For example, in a basic school text,
author Lemuel Johnson , An Elementary Arithmetic Designed for Beginners Embracing the
First Principles of the Science (Raleigh, N.C.: Branson & Farrar, 1864) had this
arithmetic exercise for children:
“If one Confederate soldier kills 90 Yankees,
how many Yankees can 10 Confederate soldiers kill?”
After the War of the Rebellion, they decided the normal amount of killing was not enough.
They began to enhance this killing power even more. Oh, how they hate Yankees! Tobacco
farmers are in essence the neo-Confederate Army, still killing Yankees! (with themselves
sometimes martyrs to the cause).
The hatred continues. It includes even hatred of anyone exposing their genocidal
activities. Unreconstructed Southerners, via lawyers such as Kenneth Starr, carry on the
old KKK intimidation policy, now against anyone daring to have a role in exposing the rat
poisoning of tobacco. Note the case of Brown & Williamson Tobacco Corp v Merrell Williams,
Henry Waxman, et al, # 94-5171; 314 US App DC 85; 62 F3d 408 (15 Aug 1995), suing people
for their whistleblower role in exposing the coumarin plot.
So was Iowa’s self-defense reaction, banning cigarettes in 1897.
Michigan quickly followed Tennessee’s example with MCL 750.27, MSA 28.216, a 1909
law that forbids “any person within the state” from action that “manufactures, sells or
gives to anyone, any cigarette containing any ingredient deleterious to health or foreign
to tobacco . . . .”
Soon thereafter, Thomas Edison did a short expose of cigarette paper in 1914. Nebraska
soon passed a law, No. 28-1421 (1919), saying inter alia, “Only cigarettes and cigarette
material containing pure white paper and pure tobacco shall be licensed” (full text in
Nebraska Revised Statutes, Vol 2A, p 299, 1995 Reissue).
Many other states too began passing cigarette bans. Such bans would vitiate the
Confederates’ undercover treacherous war against America. So the Confederates, now known
as the tobacco lobby, reacted. They went to work to defeat and repeal such laws. To do so,
some sources state that bribery was used. The Confederates mass bribers arranged with
legislators in the 1920’s that laws against poisoning people (precedents later followed in
N*** Germany in the 1930’s under Adolf Hitler), were repealed, or left unenforced.
The result when laws against poisoning people either do not exist, or are unenforced
can be said succinctly: “Cigarette Makers Get Away With Murder,” says Elizabeth M. Whelan,
Sc.D., M.P.H., The Detroit News, p 4B (14 March 1993), and in her book, A Smoking Gun How
the Tobacco Industry Gets Away With Murder (Philadelphia: George F. Stickley, People’s
Health Library, 1984).
