Really, if we're doing this we should legalize marijuana and make it come with a graphic warning.
A graphic warning of what, a dude with red eyes playing Black Ops? Somebody eating a bag of Flaming Hot Cheetos?

Attacking society's recreational pariah is all it is. If you think smokers need to be warned of the dangers of their habit, you're a fool. If one can pick up bottle after bottle of alcohol and know what they're doing to their liver, you can bet your sweet behind smokers know what they're doing to themselves smoke after smoke as well. as a former smoker, I think the visual label aids are redundant and moronic. Would it not be redundant and moronic to plaster pictures of cirrhosis of the liver on alcohol? Even if it were to show consumers the perils of what drinking does to you? Of course it would be, don't kid yourself. What's good for the goose is good for the gander--either graphic labels apply to both substances, or they apply to neither. Pick one.


What needs to happen is the outright banning to additives to tobacco. I've had organic additive-free cigarettes in the past, and they are infinitely more pleasurable to smoke. The taste, the smell, the feeling afterward, it's all much more pleasant. It's the (metaphoric) difference between a fine cigar, and a cheap piece of acrid crap.

It might take a while for me to find anything negative it does. Maybe possible psychosis? Don't know how the fed would make a graphic image for that though...

Is that what they call 'Successfully shifting you from one industry to another'?


Huh? Which industry and which? Please elaborate.


Either way, you still have that leash attached.


And what's that to You? Really. Why do YOU care? If You have provided what You feel is valid information and I continue to smoke, why not shrug and let the issue go?


From the Tobacco industry to the Pharmaceutical industry.

Care, I do care about you, and will try and word things as best as I can to help people understand they are just a consumer, and thought of that way too, entirely expendable, and to wake you up.

The next step lies with you.


Ah. I see now. Yes, get You off the cigs and onto meds. Thanks for the clarification.
