All Natural American Spirit cigarettes are Fire Standards Compliant (FSC) to meet states’ performance standards for ignition propensity. We use a modified paper to adhere to FSC requirements. Our tobacco remains unchanged and still 100% additive-free.
FSC cigarettes are NOT "fire safe" and need the same careful attention and handling as any other cigarette. Any burning cigarette can ignite materials if handled carelessly.
In November 2008 the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced that it would no longer approve of the longstanding practice of referring to tar and nicotine yields in cigarette advertising as being "by FTC method." The FTC method, also called the Cambridge Filter Method, is a machine-based testing method that "smokes" cigarettes and measures their tar and nicotine yields. The FTC has decided that such standardized tar and nicotine information does not help consumers make informed decisions about the cigarettes they choose to smoke. As a result of the FTC decision, we have removed the tar and nicotine information about our cigarettes from our websites.
For more information on the FTC decision, go to the FTC’s website.
Yes. We are a voluntary signatory to the MSA. We are committed to complying with the marketing and other provisions of the MSA and to achieving its objective of reducing underage access to and use of tobacco products. We do not want underage persons to smoke or have access to our products. We market only to smokers 21 years of age or older. We do not encourage non-smokers to start or existing smokers to smoke more. The best way to reduce the risks of smoking is to quit. There is no safe cigarette.

Yes. It could take thousands of years to biodegrade just one cigarette butt so they should be considered litter. Read more about SFNTC's efforts to prevent butt litter here. We encourage all smokers to dispose of cigarette butts responsibly. For more facts on cigarette litter, visit www.cigarettelitter.org.
