    I work for a tobacco company in the US. Where did you get your information/data? I’m not sure how accurate it is. Camel is RJ Reynolds number 1 selling brand. So Winston is definitely not number two considering it is owned by RJ Reynolds as well. I would be shocked if L&M was more popular than Camel. If you could provide some evidence to defend your claims that would be greatly appreciated.
