People are replacing anorexia with cigarettes to lose weight (since it makes you less hungry). This tax won't stop people who are already addicts, but it will help prevent new people from becoming addicted.

Yes, but what about the people that are already addicted?

They're being exploited by 86. We already have enough cash shoveled into various anti-smoking organizations. We don't need to take a bigger cut outta some 60-year old lady's wellfare check.

If moronic 17-year old girls start sucking cancer sticks to lose a few vanity pounds, than screw them. That's just plain ignorant. But I don't feel it necessary to tax a steel mill worker off a 12-hour shift that needs to relax.

The college students that become addicts? Idiotic. They've been told ALL their life not to smoke. I'm a college student who smokes cigars every could of weeks, but I'm far from addicted. Anybody out of my generation whose become addicted to ciggarettes is a flat out moron. No questions, no excuses, no BS. You're a moron. Your life is NOT that hard.


People have known about the dangers of smoking since the nineteenth century. Maybe not quite the extent of it but the fact that it wasn't healthy. I've read recommendations not to smoke for health reasons in Dostoyevsky. And he died in 1881.

Yeah, there's no denying that. What #32 is saying is that CASUAL second hand smoking doesn't have much effect, which is true, as long as it happens a couple of times... but it has serious effects if it happens long term. I think there's no possible discussion here.

I'm not questioning the danger of a cigarette; I'm merely remarking that I don't believe +90% of second hand smoke is dangerous.

But I've always known cigarettes are dangerous. I know cigars and dip are dangerous, too. But, from time to time, I like to enjoy a little of each. Doesn't hurt to be a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly member of their pleasures. At least, it hasn't hurt me yet.
