Denver (AP) --The Colorado Department of Health is urging a tobacco company to stop marketing dissolvable tobacco products in the state. The health department issued a resolution Wednesday asking R.J.
Reynolds to remove the product from Colorado stores. According to KMGH-TV, board members fear its marketing will get children addicted. Company spokesman Richard Smith says the product is not candy. He says it's tobacco and it's clearly labeled. State lawmakers would have to pass a law to prevent this type of tobacco from being sold.
