No. Nope. Nopenopenope
Except for a few select specialised brands, all tobacco companies test on animals, usually rats or beagles which is my main issue with smoking, cause people are going to find things detrimental to their own health either way it’s such a pointless thing to kill others for :/ I mean, we know it’s bad for us, no new research is going to stop us from it so why even bother?
I’m going to quote a passage from The Plague Dogs by Richard Adams as it sums up the pointlessness of smoking tests on animals very nicely;
"Of course, it was open to people to give up smoking, but this would plainly be an intolerable demand to make, as long as experiments on living and sentient animals held out the chance of something better. The experiments had, in fact, been described by I.C.I themselves as "the ultimate safeguard" for humans - which proved that they were a much better safeguard than not smoking."
