dark (tobacco) cigarettes and bright/blond (tobacco) cigarettes

A similar experimental design was used to

bright tobacco cigarettes and the smoke of air-cured bright tobacco
cigarette (Harris et al. 1974).(http://www.cdc.gov/Tobacco/sgr/sgr_1986/SGR1986-Chapter5.pdf...

because of substantial supply-side and demand-side differences between these two product

increasing part of the total sales of cigarettes in both countries (78.7% in France and 71.7%
in Spain, for 1998, in volume).
