    Wow, and I thought the lead industry was beyond sleazy for lobbying to have lead added back into paint. It’s a shame that some people can put their own wealth above any regard for others’ health and well being.

    Google “my body, my choice”. That’s one of the rallying cries for pro abortion. (and please let’s not make this thread about abortion)

    The same should be said for smokers.

    Rolling back tobacco ads? Why not? Pharmacuticals can hawk their wares and let people self diagnose themselves. Liqour ads have made a comeback making it cool to get drunk off your a$$. And the petroleum industry runs ads saying that they are working on cleaner fuels while making a mint on the stuff that pollutes the enviornment.

    So why not allow another industry to lie to us?

    I smoke, and I know it’s terrible for my health, but yeah, I believe it’s my choice. I DO discourage anyone who’s NOT a smoker from starting, but I don’t pressure other smokers to quit.

    That being said, I also believe that Big Tobacco is a collection of liars and money-grubbers who care only about the bottom line. They’re like arms dealers and mercenaries; if you’re making money off other people’s miseries, there ain’t a hell of a lot of incentive to hope for improved conditions.

    churchill, I would agree with you except for the effects of passive smoking, which I have experienced personally. (I had a “smoker’s cough” in my thirties despite never smoking in my life – and not having lived with my smoking father for twenty years…) As the saying goes, your freedom to swing your fist ends where it meets my face! I don’t object to potentially fatal nicotine and chemical injection systems as such – but don’t inflict them on me!

    Does your ban extend to the wacky-tobacky too, Motive?
