U.S. Report: More Nicotine in Cigarettes

Article in today's Washington Post -- U.S. Report: More Nicotine in Cigarettes, by Steve LeBlanc:

    The level of nicotine that smokers typically consume per cigarette has risen
    about 10 percent in the past six years, making it harder to quit and easier to get
    hooked, according to a new report released Tuesday by the Massachusetts Department
    of Health.

    The study shows a steady climb in the amount of nicotine delivered to the lungs of
    smokers regardless of brand, with overall nicotine yields increasing by about 10 percent.
