So you are down to it’s ok to be underhand because other people are?
And how does cigarette smoke, and the know toxins it contains, not fit the definition of poisonous for the smoker?
Again quote where I said people should not have the choice to smoke.
That doesn’t give big tobacco the right to miss lead and conspire to hid the dangerous of smoking. Sorry, you don’t come across for standing up for freedom. You come across as being apologetic, sympathetic, and as lobbyists for large corrupt big tobacco. And it is very sad. Again, is it true to say big tobacco engaged in behavior that ATS tries to expose.

Most tobacco consumed in the U.S. grows on large commercial farms and sold by a few corporations. However, home growing for personal use is still legal in most areas. Homeowners who wish to plant a few tobacco plants should take the time to learn federal, state and local rules about their crop.
WHY GROW YOUR OWN TOBACCO ?
Stop paying ridiculous prices for your cigarettes, cigars or pipe tobacco, by growing your own tobacco, you can smoke for about $10.00 a week or less. Surprisingly, not many people know that's it's perfectly legal to grow your own tobacco for ones own consumption. Take a look at some of the free extras you get when you buy ready-made tobacco products.
)... you are quite obviously anti-smoking, but no-one ever accused you of not allowing choice (though the anti-smoking sentiment is achieving that for you without you having to, since gov is denying that choice in increasing incursions into freedoms)... I live in Australia, where tobacco plants are considered a controlled substance, didn't realise it was fine in the US... but whatever.
Typical Tap Water Content:

Do you have the same aversion to seeing people drink alcohol? causes just as much, if not more issues....
I'll never understand the attraction of smoking, but if people want to kill themselves, who am I to deny them what they want? Live and let live...as long as they don't blow it near me, we're cool.
