Do you think that’s a good thing regardless?
Laws are the voice of the people. If people wanna smoke then people are gonna smoke
If anything it's important to ally with them so everyone can have the freedom if they so choose. Everyone knows the consequences, and that's the biggest thing that matters

Because while their ruining their own lives, why not just make money off of them? Same could pretty much be said about credit cards if no one pays off their debt and drown in ridiculous interest rates.
Maybe
Because of
This lil thing called
Morals?

Tobbaco is just an old profitable resource. Unfortunately it has become the #1 stress reliever than any drug. I would know, my grandfather raised me ever since I was a baby and I grew up witnessing his addiction getting worse till it claimed his life with stage 4 lung cancer May 4th of 2020. He literally couldn't go a day without smoking a pack or 2.

With how high the prices get, it can be considered illegal, at least over here.
Loved it when dad had his retirement and told us how it would be a big change with the monthly money, like, no, just stop smoking and you have 300€ every month.
I get that you enjoy it, but once it is an addiction you should stop for good.

big tobacco has many politicians in their back pocket why do you think the war on weed started? it wasn't the same reason crack was illegal pretty sure big tobacco was a big part maybe they even knew cannabis was less dangerous than tabacco

I'm repeating myself from many other topics like this. I'm not bothered in principle but it does seem to make my chest feel tight so I'll tend to stay away from where people are smoking... which only really becomes a problem when dickheads do it at the entrance or exit of a supermarket and I'm with the kids. Then I have no qualms about telling you to kindly fuck off... kinda like how some people act towards unvaccinated/unmasked.

Youre talking about something people have done for thousands of years. We have also seen what happens when you make taking a substance illegal, it doesnt help.

Smoking shouldn't be outlawed but it should be made to only be available in specific places (the "smoke pits", so to speak) to keep second-hand smoke away from other individuals, and there should be clear paths to getting off cigarettes. Plus, additives shouldn't be added to increase the addiction someone may get from smoking. Make those things a reality, and I don't care if people choose to smoke whatever they want to smoke.

But then again, I'm just a woman, and I learned today in a locked EoF thread that misogyny for no reason is funny to at least one moderator here, so feel free to ignore my opinion.
