Smokefree Innotec, Inc. Comments on U.S. Navy Submarine Smoking Ban Under Consideration

NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwire - March 30, 2010) -  Smokefree Innotec, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SFIO) ( or today reacted to an article in the NavyTimes of March 29 by Lance M. Bacon, staff writer. 

Mr. Bacon writes: "The smoking lamp will soon be out aboard all subs, according to the Navy's top officer." Admiral Gary Roughead, Chief of Naval Operations Administration, told the Navy Times: "We're going to stop smoking on submarines." The move is not yet official yet. Vice Admiral John Donnelly 'is examining the options of changing the policy of smoking in a submarine to improve the overall health of the entire crew'. According to the Navy Times a final order is likely to come soon. The catalyst for change is the effect of second-hand smoke on crew members who remain submerged for months at a time. "That atmosphere moves around the submarine," Roughead said, "you don't smell it, but the damaging elements from the smoke are still present."

Smokefree Innotec, Inc. is a purveyor of smokefree alternatives and recently signed a distribution arrangement for the world's first totally smokefree hi-tec cigarette with Leading Points Corporation. 

"Leading Points is working diligently to generate market awareness and education, amongst military service members and veterans informing them that a healthier Smokefree option exists," stated Lieutenant Colonel Kevin T.K. Sullivan (US Army Ret.) President of Leading Points Corporation. "Articles such as that found in the NavyTimes reinforce our belief that there will be a dynamic shift in the spending patterns currently involved with military tobacco sales." In 2005, the military sold $611 million worth of tobacco. Sullivan further stated, "Leading Points Corporation has delivered Smokefree product to senior buyers of the military exchange services for consideration. We will provide all necessary oversight to help Smokefree Innotec gain favorable results in this endeavor."
