I was hoping when I went back up there this year they would be more decomposed, but the cigs looked about the same.

Not a bad idea….

Anyone else ever seen mold on a cigarette before?

*It also appears as if there are at least two molds there, one of them only being on the filters.

Oogley Boo!

We should try and get that mold to transfer to other used cigarette filters. That decomposer has potential.

That is both disgusting and cool because at least they are being decomposed.
