After their inital request was denied, the 33 miners who have been trapped for more than a month will now be receiving a daily cigarette delivery. After weeks of delivering nicotine patches and gum, rescuers are now sending down two packs a day to be split among the group. The decision was made after upgrades were made to the ventilation in the mine. [CNN]
