Flavored? What kind is there left?

Personally, I think banning cigarettes is a good thing (even if it is just flavored ones). It slowly moves people into a healthier age, whether they like it or not.

Regular cigarettes and menthols are still going to be legal.

In my experience clove smokers are usually 20 something hipsters or kids that don't smoke but like to have a nice cigarette on a special occasion. Cloves are more expensive and very few people smoke them regularly, especially not poor fucking teenagers (The ban is supposed to protect teenagers, by the way).

FFFFFFFFFFFF and if I want to kill myself I should be able to. Fuck you. Banning cigarette flavors is ridiculous and I'm pretty sure that the only reason Obama is banning cigarette flavors is so people will ignore his own smoking problem. He'd never ban his beloved newports.



I'm joking, really, he smokes marlboros.



EDIT: Seriously though, they can ban Prime Times. I don't care about those shitty "Cigars." Cloves taste pretty nasty but are much more respectable. And the fuck packs can't say "low tar?" It's not like they're lying.

Wasn't the reasoning for banning flavoured cigarettes that they served as a 'gateway' smoke for kids to get into heavy duty smoking? The flavours are supposedly more appealing to kids, but the nicotine is still all the same.

I don't smoke but people should have the right to be able to. Even though I am against smoking, I feel that it shouldn't be banned.

You can't legislate away human behavior.

I think he was implying that trying to control human behaviour is more a rights-freedoms issue. It's contravening people's ability to enjoy what they want in their free time, and while-- yes, it is harmful to other people, it's not like the intention to murder is there. There are already bans on indoor smoking.

If cigarettes are banned, there would be another 1920's prohibition nightmare. People would be growing it in their backyard (Tobacco originally came from Eastern US so it'd grow much better than say, pot) There would be organized crime supplying the demand, etc. etc.


Also, legalize marijuana, LSD. Decriminalize cocaine, heroine etc. etc.

Add legalizing murder and rape as well and we'd be all happy campers!

Legalizing said drugs for medical purposes is fine, but for any other reason, I don't approve. We'd be doing people a favor by taking away what's harmful to them, whether they like it or not. The issue of rights-freedoms is iffy. I'd rather take away what's killing the American population then worry about whether it makes them happy or not.

Banning tobacco altogether may raise controversy, and it will lead to illegal behind-the-scenes smoking, but it won't be for nothing. Opium and cocaine were once legal, and although there's always the occasional abuser here and there, the number of people using them has decreased tremendously.

Plus, I'm sick of suffering from secondhand smoke every time I come out of Walmart.
