Is Herman Cain backed by Big Tobacco? Is he promoting a return to the glory days of smoking?
Does he wish to influence children to smoke? Why do you think this candidate included a smoker in his recent ad?
According to Mother Jones, he was a lobbyist for the National Restaurant Association. During that time, he did take money from tobacco companies in exchange for opposing smoking bans in restaurants. I have yet to see any evidence that he wants children to smoke, but he does appear to have a connection to Big Tobacco.
He aired that ad to appeal to people who dislike expansive federal regulation of personal choices. That is one way to describe his base, and the ad was a brilliantly written one, as political ads go. There's no conspiracy lurking behind it.
I don't think that Herman Cain is involved with Big Tobacco. He is simply taking a stand against political correctness.

I kind a feel sorry for the poor guy. I don't think he would be foolish enough to run for president knowing he had all this stuff in the closet. I wonder if his closest competitor, Mitt is digging up this dirt on Cain.
