The article presents information on new tobacco products. Republic Tobacco L.P., the exclusive U.S. distributor of Job cigarette papers and accessories, is slimming down a bit this summer. The new Job 1.5 slim cigarette papers are a line extension of the Job1.5 brand, but are now offered in a slimmer intermediate size for more variety. HBI Tobacco launched what it considers the world's first flavored pre-rolled cone blunt. The pre-rolled Cyclone funnel shape allows the user to easily place the tobacco within the wrap with minimal spillage, and also includes a built-in paper filter tip to take the convenience factor up a notch.
