Sales of HeatSticks could ironically end up benefitting from a US legal battle lost by their manufacturer Philip Morris and other leading tobacco companies.

A long-standing legal dispute has finally been resolved, with cigarette companies forced to display signs in retail stores that disclose the health harms and addictiveness of smoking.
