It was brand new, and I left it in my pants pocket. It went through the wash. Now, about a month later, they're still sitting in my drawer. I opened the pack and they look/smell fine. Again, the pack was sealed, brand new. Do you guys think they're safe to smoke? (I'm only asking because I've had an incredibly awful week financially, and I just so happen to be out of cigarettes). I have 2lbs of Cigarette Tobacco but nothing beats a Marlboro Menthol for me. I need an answer ASAP, as I'm sure the other smokers on this board know what its like to go more than a few hours without a bogie!
