Signed! I don't see why they think this necessary when there are plenty of humans still willing to do this for free. Stop making animals pay for stupid human habits.

There are so many walking test subjects around for them to study. Don't force it on innocent animals who would never smoke this crap unlike humans!

now that the myth of secondhand smoke dangers has been exploded and the government is caught with egg on its face after backing such an aggressive Stamp-Out-SMOKERS! campaign for what turned out to be a undocumented reason, they have turned to hyperregulating the producers - who have already been forbidden to accurately label their products by strength - and frantically flailing at any possible way to justify the growing Big Brother tactics of regulating personal behavior in the (mythical) public interest. the tobacco people have no desire to waste money, regardless of how they feel about animals - the government depradations already costs them enough - and the government's frantic efforts to resurrect the dead horse of secondhand smoke are an equally-inexcusable waste of lives and tax money.

as Roseann D. points out, there are plenty of nicotine paraiahs out there happy to leap at a chance to enjoy their personal choice without having to hide, freeze, or go broke. testing on animals was what CREATED this false result in the first place - anybody see the pattern here?

Signed. Vivisection is never acceptable. People willingly smoke and let them suffer the consequences. Leave the animals alone.

How can they still be testing nicotine on any person or animal, after decades of proven harm. Shows what money and stupidity can do.

Is there anyone on the planet who thinks smoking is good for their health? What pointless cruel torture of animals - all experimentation should be banned but this one is utterly and totally money driven.

Sacred tobacco made profane just as this land, water, corn and life itself has been made since the intrusion. My grandfathers people were burned alive so that the British could grow tobacco for $$. Why? What good has come of it? When will people see that harming life is a crime in both the world of the spirit and this world of the material illusion?
