    There’s at least two good reasons to buy these:

    1) They’re probably safer than other cigarettes, even if they’re not as safe, as say, driving to work each day.

    2) The people around you may be less impacted by smokeless tobacco. So if one spouce smokes and the other doesn’t, they may be a better, more sustainable compromise.

    There’s another factor, which is that if these are the sorts of smokeless cigarettes that RJR was experimenting with in the 80s, it may be possible to consume them in no-smoking zones, such as office buildings or airplanes. It will depend a lot on the wording of the rules and the nature of the cigarettes.
