Nicoderm manufacturer ALZA is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson Company

ALZA is a wholly owned subsidiary of J & J.

ALZA manufactures Nicoderm & Nicoderm CQ.

Johnson & Johnson's buyout of Pfizer Consumer Health (PCH) now gives J & J additional pharmaceutical nicotine profits from Nicotrol, Nicorette, and Commit (see pgs 32,33,56).

Note: GSK distributes Nicoderm, but it is manufactured by a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary......ALZA. As explained by GSK rep here:

It's little wonder then that Johnson & Johnson is funding smoking ban efforts thru their private foundation the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF). To date RWJF has funded groups like the American Lung Association, American Non-Smoker's Rights, Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids, etc. to the tune of $446+ million to eliminate traditional delivery methods of nicotine, in order to prop up demand of all the pharmaceutical nicotine products that parent organization Johnson & Johnson manufactures or owns........classic rent seeking legislation at its finest.

The only problem is that these smoking bans, which are merely a marketing scam for the pharmaceutical nicotine industry, are eliminating thousands of hospitality establishments and hundreds of thousands of jobs.
