Just take a walk and start picking up the butts, you will see first hand that these butts will be in varying degrees of bio degradation. What you
will also see is GUM, gum is everywhere usually big black circles of goo that seems to last forever. Its easy to pick up butts and when you do you
will see them in different rates of decay, but you try to pick up gum. You can't pick up gum you have to remove it with hot pressurized steam.
The last I checked there are 5 death certificates worldwide that links second hand smoke to deaths, yet were told 50k or more die each year, but what
of the revised stats since so many have quit smoking in the last decades? You think the data would be the same from 1970 compared to now?
Again take a walk and look, butts, gum, bags, bottles even cans. If you live near a little store with personalized logos that's the litter you will
see in all directions of the store.
Seriously leave us smokers alone, we pay more in taxes than you, we end up being cheaper medically than none smokers because we tend to not live as
long, and we spend more money on insurance than you. You wanna complain about clean air while standing by a road or highway but wanna rip on us
smokers?? When fossil fuels are whats causing the smog you see and breath??
