    I get the feeling cigarette companies were paying for product placement. Especially with glamorous female stars

    I am sure you are correct. The cigarette companies were major sponsors. I also think some of those actors were just plain hooked on the nicotine. I alos remember watching new broadcasts where you could see the smoke rising from the ash tray next to the news anchor.

    I never smoked, but it was still common, and allowed in the work place when I fist started my career.

    When I was in HS they had a student smoking lounge

    In college, you could smoke at your desk and the professors smoked
