I hate being around smokers and having to deal with people who have to schedule their time to smoke. I have never smoked anything illegal, but one
year I did try cigarettes, cigars, pipes and hookahs. Cigarettes seemed to be the most unpleasant and useless of the bunch. The other three had flavor
and aromas that could be down right pleasing. I think they are all best left to private events and not forced on other people, such as at restaurants
The list from the one link seems so odd and random. What makes a free sample of smokeless tobacco less dangerous than a cigarette sample? And candy? I
remember as a kid playing detective or Casablanca, and having those on hand. After about the first one, the character dropped and I would just gobble
up the sweet stick. It really was tasty. I grew up to hate the things, and aside from the year I gave it a try to see what the fuss was about, I have
no desire to do that. I don't think the candy had any role in the decision.
What I want to know, is how the FDA can ban jingles and characters in tobacco ads, but they can glam up and disney-fy every big pharma drug out there?
These ads get people to go to docs and demand something they see whether the professional feels they need it or not. They don't get what they demand,
they go to someone who will give it to them. The doctors get handcuffed by big pharma.
There is a little candy store in town that sells all sorts of retro and classic candies, to include candy cigs and pipes. I would get them once in a
while because I liked the taste. I gave up playing detective few years ago
I guess I better go buy up their stock. I wonder what kind of trouble possession of 'candy' drugs will get you in.
