making everything on the planet just legal to anyone would be a complete disaster...

why not go ahead and let Walmart sell machine guns?

f*ck it, if you got the money, lets allow people to buy nukes...


there have to be some limits and regulations...

how is banning more tobacco going to make tobacco companies billions?

that makes no sense...

everyone here is either still a kid or at one point was a kid...everyone here has an idea of how kids think...

Tobacco companies also know how kids think...




^^^

do you think the FDA banned him so that tobacco companies can make billions?



^^^

did the FDA also ban those so that tobacco companies can make billions???




maybe it is time for people to put the conspiracy theories aside and consider that there is a chance they are just trying to keep tobacco away from the youngsters...

I would argue that soda has just as much damage if not more. Coke and Pepsi spend BILLIONS on marketing their products and making them seem like so much more than a sugary brown beverage. People have been consuming them at ridiculous rates and obesity and diabetes have soared in tandem with soda sales... but we're not about to ban soda.

Like I said, I think cigarettes are completely awful and people shouldn't smoke. However, they should be able to make that decision for themselves.

Banning a cartoon camel that was explicitly used to market to children is one thing... but telling them they can't create flavored cigarettes? If a legal-aged adult decides he wants a cherry cigarette, let him have it.

INB4 all the kids who were going to buy cloves go out tomorrow and buy berry-flavored Skoal.
