I don't get it. Any other product on the market that is shown to cause harm is recalled and banned. However, cigarettes have been proven to kill and they're legal. Is it because the government taxes hem so highly and benefit too much to hold the tobacco companies responsible?
I honestly don't blame smokers. My dad smokes, and wants to quit so badly. In every other area of his life he's strong, successful, and responsible, but the cigarettes have such a hold on him. He started smoking before cigarettes were known to cause all of he problems that they do. He has a date set for my son's birthday to stop, so cross your fingers for me.
Anyways, this is kind of a rant. I hate cigarettes! How dare a company sell something that not only is physiologically and mentally addicting, but can also kill you in so many ways. If you use their product for life, it WILL kill you.

Have you ever checked out the State & Federal taxes are on a pack of cigs. There is no way the government is ever going to outlaw them.

Those who use the argument that smoking is ONLY harming the smoker's body are soooo wrong!!
Second-hand smoke HAS been proven to cause cancer and asthma in CHILDREN who are constantly exposed to it thanks to their parents/close relatives.
Whereas, alcohol (sans DUI) and fatty fast foods ONLY affect the person consuming them. I'm not going to suffer cirrhosis of the liver, a heart attack, stroke, or get diabetes because of what you choose to consume!
