In this Thursday, May 18, 2017 file photo, packs of cigarettes are offered for sale at a convenience store in Helena, Mont. Tobacco companies have made claims about cigarettes since the 1950s, all later proven false. In some cases the introduction of these products, such as filtered and cigarettes, propped up cigarette sales and kept millions of Americans smoking.
