Redwood Cigarettes
"Be a real man. Smoke Redwood."
―From the bottom of the company's website

Redwood Cigarettes is a tobacco-related company which is featured in GTA: Vice City, Vice City Stories, GTA IV, The Lost and Damned, The Ballad of Gay Tony and Grand Theft Auto V. It has appeared in numerous billboards and advertisements throughout the radio. There are also numerous branches of the company, particularly in Vice City. The logo font and package design largely emulates the Marlboro brand. Their main headquarters is located in Downtown Vice City and it's the highest building in Vice City. On the company's website, a cowboy is featured on the top banner, a reference to the Marlboro Man. The company is the official sponsor of the Los Santos City Marathon and the #86 Bati Custom motorcycle in The Lost and Damned and Ballad of Gay Tony. In Grand Theft Auto IV and its DLC's, there is a website for Redwood Cigarettes which can be accessed using any computer.

Redwood Juniors

In 1984, during the events of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the company introduced Redwood Juniors, a brand of candy cigarettes intended to market the real product towards children. Each pack contains 20 candy cigarettes. There are many Redwood Juniors billboards throughout Vice City, featuring the slogan "Junior's Gotta Start Sometime!". There is also a large replica of a Redwood Juniors box atop the Verdi Groceries store in Little Havana.

GTA Online

When playing GTA Online, you may smoke Redwoods at any given time in the game. All the player need to do is to buy a pack of them in any 24/7 or liquor store. One package of ten cigarettes cost six dollars, and smoking will by a small percentage lower your health.

Trivia

  • Redwood Cigarettes is likely a play on Red Apple cigarettes, a fictitious tobacco brand that routinely appears in Quentin Tarantino movies.
