Project Tame was an internal Liggett project in which the company conducted chronic inhalation experiments with cigarettes containing 10 percent magnesium nitrate.[1] The project appears to have been an effort at creating a cigarette that had less "biological activity" (a safer cigarette) than traditional cigarettes. Project Tame appears to have been part of Liggett's Project XA. Testing for Project Tame was conducted by James D. Mold, circa 1976. [2]
