IntroductionCigarette smoking is a leading cause of death and disease around the world and the leading preventable cause of death and disease in the United States, responsible for at least 480 000 deaths annually .

However, several vulnerable groups continue to report significantly higher prevalences of smoking . People with illicit substance use disorders (SUDs) may be one such group.Illicit drug use has been increasing over the past decade and recent data suggest that 3.9% of US adults meet criteria for a past‐year SUD, while 9.9% of US adults meet criteria for a lifetime SUD .
