Smokers are head of the pollution.

Whether smoking is right or wrong it doesn't matter. What matter's is how big Tobacco targets young people with media etc.

I buy tobacco, because I smoke. The Government collects revenue from this which goes towards supporting our services such as NHS etc.This includes INTERNATIONAL AID. If this revenue wasn't collected, income tax would go up for EVERYONE. At the same time, there are many plantation workers making a living (at whatever level) and supporting their families. If everyone stops smoking (as seems to be the trend / intention from various direction), income tax would increase due to the lose of source...

If everyone stops smoking (as seems to be the trend / intention from various direction), income tax would increase due to the lose of source & would more than likely increase duty on other items / commodities. At the same time, the plantation workers would be out of work, so more aid would be sent from governments. Then we have a problem... we haven't got enough in the pot to maintain the amount of aid, how is this solved another increase on revenues & tax in order to pay it. Consequently, is it not cheaper for the country to smoke & use revenue from that to keep certain duties down for the rest. Therefore by the rules of advocate, smokers are helping to keep costs down to the complete population as well al keeping plantation workers in a job to support their families!!!!!!!

Garry Reid "the plantation workers would be out of work" - in actual fact the ground would still need workers to work whatever crop the now-available ground would be used for!!!

Garry Reid What I find amusing is they raise the prices of cigarettes everytime we turn around. The cigarette companies are putting posion in the cigarettes without people knowing and keeping it from the Gov. This is WRONG! The cigarettes you smoke today, are not the same cigarettes you were smoking in 1970 or 1980. I believe that everytime they raise the price of cigarettes, they need to raise the price of, ALCHOHOL. Then you would see them all shut-up. Drinking KILLS!! ...

Cigarettes should be considered a drug because the addiction level to them are the exact same as a schedule class I, II, and III drug. Raise the price of Alchohol!!

I know / knew they lie. It's the corporate American way. I smoke anyway. It's my choice. But they should have to tell the truth. ALL companies of ANY kind should. And no company should be able to influence the GOVERNMENT. Corporate Communism = When corporations, not the people, control the government.

My parents smoke, I don't. But unless you have been under a rock since your were a kid, you know smoking is not good for you. All you have to do is read the side of the pack. Are you going to blame Budwiser when you get liver disease? How about Mickie D's for heart disease? Stop putting the blame where it doesn't belong and take responsibility for your own actions. Whatever happened to personal responsibility????? I'm starting to get tired of the "It's not fault society".

I don't smoke..and I don't patronize any cigarette company. Government should tax more tobacco manufacturer and dealer and perhaps go as far as market denial campaign.

If I had it my way, I'd ban tobacco, altogether. Not only is it bad for smokers, but it circulates in the air we all share. I'm not saying anything you don't already know. Let's clean up the air, starting with cigarettes. Yes, Jimmy, many non-smokers die young. But why let smokers add to it?

I fail to see why tobacco farmers cannot make the transition from tobacco to hemp. It would kill two birds with one stone and the hemp might save what few trees we have left maybe even a particle of the rain forest in S. America.The unavailability of tobacco might save a life or two.=/.
