Well, Mr. Moderator, someone being ugly or dessing funny are merely opinions. Now eyes burning, food tasting bad, increased chances of disease, bad breat, clothes stinking, these are all facts. I would suspect a moderator would know the difference.

I feel smoking doesnt kill people and neither does second hand smoke. Second hand smoke would be equivilent to breathing in polluted air, which is all around us. I remember once in school, they compared a person's lungs who smoked most of there life to a someone who lived in a well populated city all there life. Both pictures of their lungs looked exactly the same. The cigarette company, is a MULTI-BILLION dollar industry, and the government's are very well aware of this. Now, how hard would it be to persuade the public that second hand smoke causes cancer of the lungs and anyone who smokes within 20 ft of you could increase chances of lung cancer greatly?
If,I am correct this is ATS, but yet so many of you, buy into what the government feeds you about every day ordinary life. And yet you see a video of a rocket skipping across the ground and you think its, a UFO or something topsecret. If you would put in half the effort into debunking why cancer exists, you would find the multiple reasons in what causes cancer. There is no one cause. With all the toxins we have in this world today, you just can't point your finger at one thing.
Cigarette smoking is unhealthy, it puts the icing on the cake so to speek. But, what about flouride and chlorine which are bascially pure poision, which are in our drinking water unless you have well water. In a subtle way,I feel it's discrimination and they (government) are testing the public to see what they can get away with as far as taking our rights away from us. The power of fear can go along way, which is a great tool of the government. It starts with bad habits but, when they strip your right to bear arms, don't come within 20 ft of me because I just might blow smoke in your face.
