I remember in the 70s when we took a trip to North Carolina to visit my aunt, it was discovered that cigarettes were not taxed there – so my brother laid in a supply of a few cartons of cigarettes.
I'm guessing people are going to start doing this now again
I do not smoke – but I did at one point in my life – I think this is totally ridiculous, but then it's less dangerous than drinking I suppose
It isn't often that you hear of people losing their job because they smoke cigarettes… Marriages breaking up because one partner smokes cigarettes…
You do however here plenty of medical reasons being linked to cigarettes – even if you don't smoke, they link it to secondhand smoke… I don't know about this – if it were that simple, you would think the outlying it would make all those health issues go away! Especially for subsequent generations of kids
But they aren't seeing that – they just keep blinking the problems to other substances… Soon it will be breathing will make you ill
Oh wait – – – they already do!
