A New Way to Deliver Nicotine


Breaking satirical news from http://www.theonion.com/article/nicoderm-introduces-new-nicotine-eye-patch-52243:

“These discreet and easy-to-use eye patches allow users to curb their cigarette cravings by delivering a steady flow of therapeutic nicotine directly into the bloodstream through the optic nerve,” said company spokesperson Caitlin Timmons, adding that the user simply removes the backing from the patch and applies the adhesive layer directly on their exposed cornea. “Individuals can choose to place the patch on their left eye or right eye, and the extended-release technology will reduce withdrawal symptoms for up to 72 hours. We recommend, however, that users don’t put on more than one at a time.”

The Cornea Society and The Figgs Eye Clinic do not recommend the use of this product.
