oh yes - anyone who finds any beneficial use of tobacco must be working to the tobacco companies. However, given the billions of dollars donated by big pharma to anti-tobacco activists are also working for money and have the same inherent bias.
To the OP
Datura - its a drug used to relieve all kinds of repiratory ailments and complaints and has been so used for hundreds of years.
Datura contains he active chemicals are tropane alkaloids: mainly scopolamine, hyoscyamine, and atropine. The concentration of these compounds may vary widely depending on which part is used, the time that the plant is collected, and from plant to plant. It was traditionally used for religious visionary purposes throughout the world. And used for witchcraft in medieval Europe.
The tropane alkaloids found in Datura are the basis for Big Pharma inhalers used for repiratory ailments.
Datura is a natural chemical found in herbaceous members of the Solanaceae family. Tobacco is an herb of the Solanaceae family.
Again - I repeat - tobacco is an herb! Just like marijuana. Just like many other medicinal herbs and it has medicinal properties.
Tobacco smoke has hundreds of years of history of being used for its medicinal properties!
When anti-tobacco activists claim that there is no benefit to smoking tobacco, what they are really doing is shilling for Big Pharma
Hey - tobacco has health risks - use our products instead. We will sell you the drugs, patches, gummies, lozenges, inhalors etc to get you to give up smoking. Then we will sell you puffers to deal with respiratory issues. We will also sell you drugs to give you energy and focus. We will also sell you drugs that are anti-depressents and anti-anxiety.
For heavens sake - don't anyone think of the health risks of Big Pharma drugs in comparison to smoking.
With smoking, you may or may not get lung cancer in your 70's. But with Big Pharma - you may well take anti-smoking drugs and die in a year with suicide. Take Big Pharma anti-depressants and anti-anxiety drugs. You may make it to your 70s but your life may not be worth living because of the way that these drugs make you feel.
Don't smoke to get focus and energy. Take Big Pharma drugs instead. You make end up addicted and committed to the booby hatch but you won't get lung cancer in your 70s (or maybe you will, almost 80 % of the people getting lung cancer now are non-smokers and never-smokers).
