If you have doubts if they are for real or not just wait until end of February to see if they make good on having the Silverton brand out. And April to see if they actually have their Wellstones out as stated.
I have to go by what I read as I do not live by The office space and plant which are located at 250 Crown Boulevard in Timberlake, North Carolina, approximately 20 miles from Durham.
I have to go with what I can research. If you live around there maybe you would go see for me!!
Is Phillip Morris real? I don't know, I've never seen their operation either, but seen their product. In the little period left we will find out if they have the Wellstone Silverton Brand out and in April the regular Wellstone cigarettes. If you don't want to take a chance then wait until February or April to see if they do as stated. You have the same research materials we do, so go look it up!@
Wait and play it safe if you want. There is nothing wrong with playing it safe, but playing the risks is how we get paid or take a loss.

HAPPY TRADING:)
Wellstone Acquires Silverton Brand
Monday January 3, 4:00 pm ET
DURHAM, N.C., Jan. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Wellstone Filters (OTC Bulletin Board: WLSF - News) announced today that it has signed an agreement to acquire and distribute Silverton brand cigarettes, as soon as February 1, 2005.


Wellstone still plans to introduce its Wellstone Brand by April, 2005, after FTC approval for Wellstone packaging has been received, but management has determined to take advantage of an opportunity to capture market share immediately and be generate revenues as soon as possible.
Wellstone plans to include their revolutionary new filter into The Silverton line as soon as possible.
In addition, marketing the Silverton Brand will provide Wellstone with immediate cash flow and the potential to capture more shelf space and market share in the discount market. The transaction with Silverton is consistent with Wellstone's goal to introduce its patented filter into a greater percentage of existing brands-and consequently a greater percentage of the cigarettes smoked. Wellstone is not required to pay Silverton's for the brand acquisition, but only a modest license fee based on sales.
Wellstone is interested in entering into similar distribution or licensing agreements with companies in the growing discount segment of the cigarette market, estimated to be 12% of the existing market. Wellstone's goal to become the largest company in the growing discount cigarette market. Wellstone believes its patented filter formulation will enhance the flavor of many of the discount tobacco brands.
Wellstone believes that its patented filter formulation removes tars and certain carcinogens, while providing better taste. However, any claim as to the benefit of any Wellstone cigarette to be sold will be made within the parameters prescribed by the Federal Trade Commission. Wellstone emphasizes that NO cigarette is safe. This corporate communication by Wellstone is not intended to induce any person to purchase Wellstone tobacco products.
ABOUT THE COMPANY
Wellstone Filters, Inc. has developed and patented filter material that removes certain carcinogens and other toxins produced when tobacco is smoked without removing the compounds thought to be associated with the pleasurable effects of smoking. Wellstone seeks to promote material for cigarette filters that will enable cigarette manufacturers to provide consumers with an equally enjoyable cigarette with substantially fewer carcinogens.

Source: Business Wire, 2004-01-20

Intro:
Wellstone Filters, Inc. (OTCBB:WLSF) announced today that it is continuing its ongoing discussions with tobacco industry companies regarding its technology. In connection with those discussions, Wellstone is currently upgrading laboratory space and acquiring additional lab equipment to facilitate and accelerate the development of our filter.

• Wellstone Targets Brazil and Greece
Source: Business Wire, 2004-04-22

Intro:
Wellstone Filters, Inc. (OTCBB:WLSF) reports that the latest international patents which have been filed and accepted in Brazil and Greece has positioned the company to save millions of lives in each of those countries and worldwide. Brazil, with 30 million smokers (1337 cigarettes per capita) is the third largest grower of tobacco leaf. Nevertheless the Brazilian Ministry of Health has been one of the most aggressive in developing nations in its anti smoking stance, and plaintiffs are beginning to win lawsuits against tobacco companies. Because of these developments, Wellstone believes that in Brazil the regulatory climate is ripe for adoption of its proprietary filter. Greece has the highest per capita smoking rate in he world, with 4,313 cigarettes smoked per capita (about 4 packs a week). The death rate from tobacco has doubled in Greece in a generation. . . .
Wellstone Filters Inc. believes that the US and international patents it has received worldwide enables it to be part of the solution to the global epidemic of tobacco deaths. The World Health Organization has projected that 10 million people a year will die worldwide from tobacco-related illness by the year 2025. Wellstone believes that its research and marketing efforts can save millions of lives per year around the world, because its proprietary filter traps harmful components while, in subjective tests, not adversely affecting taste.

Wellstone Filters Announces Significant Development in Refining Its Product
Source: Business Wire, 2004-01-29

Intro:
Filters, Inc. (OTCBB:WLSF) announced today that the company has titrated its patented compound for more efficient removal properties and better draw. "Draw" in the context of cigarettes refers to the force of inhalation required. In general, a less restrictive filter has better draw and is more enjoyable to smoke. The ideal filter (which is probably not attainable) would not restrict air flow but would remove all harmful substances. Wellstone's goal is to produce a commercially feasible filter which provides acceptable draw while removing a significant percentage of harmful chemicals.

Intro:
Wellstone Filters (OTC Bulletin Board: WLSF) announced today that following the award of its patents in the European Union, Wellstone is advancing its marketing plans in the countries of the European Union. The three largest markets in the EU are Germany with about 150 billion cigarettes sold per year, Italy with 102 billion and Spain 90 billion. Historically the multinational cigarette companies have dominated the EU market. Wellstone believes that the European Union is following, with a few years' delay, the US trend toward off brands and discount pricing. Wellstone intends to constitute the crest of this marketing wave in the European Union with a full flavor cigarette to satisfy not only European tastes but also European safety regulations. In addition, menthol and "light" taste cigarettes will be marketed.

Wellstone Filters Develops Next Generation Filter Compound for Launch


DURHAM, N.C., Jan. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Wellstone Filters (OTC Bulletin Board: WLSF) is pleased to announce that months of scientific research have borne fruition in the formulation of the next generation of its proprietary filter compound. The original formulation was a liquid which treated a standard cellulose acetate filter. The original formulation was further developed in granulated form so that it could be inserted in a cavity filter. Wellstone has recently been able to draw upon some of the preeminent experts in the field to develop this new formulation of its compound. The benefit of this next generation of Wellstone's patented filter compound is that it is easier, more efficient and cost effective to manufacture and also more precise and versatile in the manner it can be deployed in the filter.

Wellstone intends to use the next generation of its compound in its Wellstone brand of cigarettes expected to be launched in April.

Wellstone believes that its patented filter formulation removes tars and certain carcinogens, with the aim of reducing smoking deaths, while providing better taste. However, any claim as to the benefit of any Wellstone cigarette to be sold will be made within the parameters prescribed by the Federal Trade Commission. Wellstone emphasizes that NO cigarette is safe. This corporate communication by Wellstone is not intended to induce any person to purchase future Wellstone tobacco products.

ABOUT THE COMPANY

Wellstone Filters, Inc. has developed and patented filter material that removes certain carcinogens and other toxins produced when tobacco is smoked -- without removing the compounds thought to be associated with the pleasurable effects of smoking. Wellstone seeks to promote material for cigarette filters that will enable cigarette manufacturers to provide consumers with an equally enjoyable cigarette with substantially fewer carcinogens.
