I agree, it is 2017, everyone knows cigarettes are deadly, there is no question about it anymore…however, they are still legal and anyone over 18 can buy as many as they like, every day if they choose to do so…
On one hand, our lawmakers crack down tough on prescription drugs and other things that are remotely dangerous, all to protect health and safety of the people they claim, but cigarettes are the exception I guess?!
Id say it has more to do with how much revenue they bring in for our govt, and that white washes their danger to a point the Govt actually protects the tobacco companies so they can continue selling, but then again, Im sure the prescription drug people did not like having their narcotic cash cows clamped down upon by new Govt laws, ensuring much less people can buy them, so…?
Cigarette smoking is essentially suicide imo, just done extremely slowly. Anyone who smokes for years has the same white lines in their fingernails as people who die from other types of poisoning.
It is amazing to me, in 2017 that I have never once heard ONE lawmaker or politician suggest cracking down on tobacco, but Its almost weekly I read about suggestions for cracking down on street drugs or other dangerous substances using laws or regulations, and they all say it is to protect our health and safety…doesnt make sense?!
