Lots of rumors before Sharp joined CIGX board of directors that an ex CEO of Crocs was cured of alzheimers. Two weeks after the rumors hit Sharp was appointed to the cigx board. He left crocs in Dec for personal reasons. Apparently highly important info leaked. Star IR won't address this. Ever here of fair disclosure?
Tests have shown that the best way for committed smokers to quit is to first switch to one of Star's safe smokeless tobacco products Ariva (1.5mg nicotine) or Stonewall (4mg), the latter for the heaviest smokers. Substitute for cigarettes (just like CigRx). Ariva and Stonewall contain both nicotine and the minor tobacco alkaloids including anatabine. That's why they work better than NRTs like Nicorette ... and tests have shown they are preferred for taste ... not to mention cost.
(Note that author Hatsukami is now on the FDATP SAC.)
One can save more money by buying Stonewall and cutting them in half.
Then after the one conquers the loss of doing without the rituals of cigarettes using one of the smokeless tobacco products, one can switch to CigRx with a high likelihood of success. Of course, someone highly committed to quitting may well have success with switching to CigRx at first (many have).
There is really nothing to update as to the appeal of the jury trial in the infringement case against RJR. We await the CAFC's decision. It could be tomorrow or it could be months.
Thanks izof for clearing it up. I would certainly not invest on the basis of rumors which are weird and unlikely to be addressed ever. I do think the cigrx will be easier to help people quit than nicorette and I would like to hear an update on the staus of the appeal.
Who knows why, but, now some idiot wants everybody to call the company on something they couldn't make comment on even if they wanted. No company is going to give out any medical information on anybody. Geez, where's the mentality of this?
So you take it from pure rumor to "news leak" all on YOUR OWN SURMISE. YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY, COMPLETELY FOS. "Star" cannot divulge medical information about board members ... or janitors ... without permission.
IF you had been around here long enough to actually know ANYTHING you would know that THE RUMOR was originally about another Crocs former CEO ... and then "transferred" to Sharp when he joined board. IT'S ALL PURE RUMOR AND YOUR "ARGUMENT" IS PURE CRAP.
Star Scientific IR couldn't give you that info, even if they wanted. Sharp is the only person that can give up any medical info, that's personal info.
Please, let's get off any rumors about anybody's personal medical info even if it is a success story.
Geez, give the guy a break.
Sharp is a board member. People were on freakin message boards talking about an ex ceo of crocs being cured of alzheimers using anatabine. Bam, within 2 weeks an ex exec and founder of crocs joins cigx board, after leaving crocs for personal reasons in Dec 2010. So, cigx HAS TO disclose the truth. they dont have a choice. I run a hedge fund and am pissed about all this crap.
