I read an article on Yahoo where Marlboro cigarettes are tainted with "pig blood" and is a western conspiracy. ROFLMBO Seriously speaking, the Iranian president has casted his delusional paranoia onto his staff. Those people need mental help in the worst way. I'm thinking more along the lines of paranoid schizophrenia. Maybe paranoia is contagious in that country. If psychiatrists could examine them, that might be what they would find as well.
TEHRAN, Iran – An Iranian official says cigarettes smuggled into Iran have been tainted with pig blood and nuclear material as part of a Western conspiracy.
The semiofficial Mehr news agency quotes Mohammad Reza Madani from the Society for Fighting Smoking as saying contraband Marlboros have been contaminated with pig hemoglobin and unspecified nuclear material.
Madani claims Philip Morris International, which sells Marlboro outside the U.S., is "led by Zionists" and deliberately exports tainted cigarettes.
He provided no evidence or information about the confiscated cigarettes. Friday's report also gave no details on how the contamination was discovered.
Tehran, which often alleges Western conspiracies, says 20 billion cigarettes are smuggled into Iran every year.
