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.
first cigarettes next your favorite food do you live under a rock?
if you give up smoke so there are 3 advantages of smoking 1 there will be no theft in your house, you will be not bitten by dogs and you will not get old age and for females no need of family planning.
Seriously, Garry Reid? You are attempting to JUSTIFY tobacco by threatening higher taxes? Forgive me, but you forgot to add into your equation the small factor of all the taxes and monies for programs that will no longer be needed to pay for dying smokers who have lung cancer, emphysema, heart disease and strokes, asthma and a whole list of other smoking related diseases. Your thought process is hugely misguided.
Its really a shame that these Big Tobacco companies misleading the society with there big and expensive marketing campaigns where it has cause and will be causeing major destructive effects for the global health, I request from all the anti smokers to raise their voice to save another life been threat from this cigarette monster and make another family happy.
The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to overturn a $28.3 million wrongful death verdict in the case of Benny Martin vs. R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co., this will affect thousands of pending cases against tobacco companies. The tobacco Companies were able to break up the Class-Action and now have to face individual victims one at at time. The $millions could add up fast. I'm soooo sorry. http://medicaldaily.com/news/20120326/9365/tobacco-supreme-court-smoker-case-verdict.htm
The ONLY way for this to stop, is to STOP MAKING/SELLING cigarettes!
How can anyone think that you can sell cigarettes, have commercials saying how terrible they are and they will kill you and then you can still go and purchase them?
The tobacco companies have killed and made ill millions of people yet they are still allowed to make/sell cigarettes!
Where on earth is the logic in this?
Someone has to be concerned about people rather than the all mighty dollar!
Truly good campaign to help health hazards.
I used to smoke and nearly died from it I said no more so I quit. I advice everybody who smokes quite while you can because sooner or later it will kill you. so take my advice quite while you can. Peggy Smythia.
