Ronald Reagan Endorsed Smoking In The ’40s & ’50s

Smoke one for “the Gipper”.

1. Long before Ronald Reagan was the 40th President of the United States, he was an actor. Like many actors in the ’40s & ’50s, he endorsed cigarettes.

2. Reagan let you know that it wouldn’t be a Merry Christmas without a carton of Chesterfields.

3. And how do you wow the ladies? Just smoke lots and LOTS of Pall Malls, just like Reagan.

4. Lastly, a reminder that you don’t need to inhale if you want to enjoy a cigar.
