Not only will the rates of (supposedly) nicotine-related diseases NOT drop - there will likely be an INCREASE in the rates of all those conditions that are listed on the warning labels (but people weren't quite as aware of them until the labels appeared or became as conspicuous as they are lately).

It seems like...and I've heard this on MSNBC...some tobacco profits are funding terrorists groups that want to attack America...millions of dollars going straight to terrorists from imported tobacco products. So every time you puff a stick of death, its another dollar in a terrorists pocket.

Addition of ammonia compounds, which speed the delivery of nicotine to smokers by raising the alkalinity of tobacco smoke. These compounds also distort the measurement of tar in cigarettes, giving lower readings than would actually be inhaled by the smoker;
Addition of chemicals, such as acetaldehyde and pyridine, that act to strengthen nicotine's impact on the brain and central nervous system.
Did you get that? Ammonia. You know what other drug has ammonia added to make it more addictive?
Crack coc aine.

I have said for years that there is something in cigarettes that reduces/prevents/cures some plague or disease the NWO has cooked up. Hence, the government's desire to reduce the use of it.
We KNOW from studies that smokers almost never get alzheimers or parkinsons. We know that children who grow up around smokers have WAY less incidences of allergies and/or respiratory issues. These are facts from scientific papers. You can look up "beneficial effects from smoking" or some similar term. You are going to be surprised at the research on this, which is always kept hush-hush.
Think about it: Alcohol, through alcoholism, alcohol related crimes, etc., causes WAY more damage than cigarettes, yet the government is not moving to ban it, like they did back in the prohibition days.
Also, think about this: Can anyone name any OTHER source of an extremely high tax revenue that the government has moved to eliminate? I can't think of one, though I suppose their might be.
