You're surprised because you're a brainwashed moron. BILLIONS of dollars was spent to make you think this way. Ask yourself - would you trust a multi-billion dollar government propaganda campaign launched last year? Of course you wouldn't. Also, second-hand smoke is a lie. Finally, the tobacco industry is not a "kike" business.

The tobacco industry also spends billions of dollars in the U.S. alone every year on advertising their business. They also spend millions of dollars every year ( that we know of ) on lobbying that same government.

By your own reasoning, it sounds like you're a brainwashed moron.

Sources below, since I know you're gonna complain about it if I don't include them. Even though I know you will ignore them anyway.

He isn't privvy to how modern politics work. It's surprising to see how many people on here speak of government like it's some independent entity and not a puppet for the wealthy elite.

Smoking is good for you and increases testosterone.

No. One study shows no change. However studies that test testosterone do control for smoking as a confound.

i don't think smoking crack and injecting heroin should be illegal. if people want to kill themselves, let them. everyone should have the right to die. if we save every fucking idiot out there, than we will weaken the human race as a whole. by stopping idiots from dying we allow them to have stupid children, and then we bitch when we live in a stupid society.

smoking should be legal. and you shouldn't hang around places that are bad for your health. drugs should be legal, and you should choose not to use them.

That's just a really naive way of putting it. It doesn't take into consideration the fact that there are many places people smoke in the US. It's not like you'd have to walk into a smoking lounge to be exposed.

you ever figure out a way to escape the pollution of cars? think that shit is good for you? you don't have to be in the same fucking country to get fucked by what some asshole is putting in the air. trying to limit that to smoking cigarettes is extremely short sighted. if you want to stop air pollution, cigarettes are not a good starting point.

you won't, because those "studies' that claimed second-hand smoke would give you diseases were full of shit. Unless you worked in an enclosed bar full of ww2 vets chainsmoking for fourty years, that is. In that case i'm sure you've got some co-factors to consider.

Cigarette smoking is the one thing that even the most Libertarian of folks among us become rabid fascists over in zero seconds flat. They fail to see how they are putting their fee-fees first over freedom and self determination. Don't ban guns or speech but we should definitely ban smoking because I don't like it! Isn't that a bit hypocritical when we allow all manner of other things that harm the public health and individuals as well? Be careful what you call to ban because one day they'll ban something you like too. Freedom needs to cover this so we don't ban more things than we already have.

So what arer these 5 other less harmful alternatives that are going to help when I get pissed? Or bored? or need an excuse to leave/ go outside and be nosy? or feel pretty good and feel like chatting? or when for whenever I feel like it? Omg I havent had one in hours.Because instead of focusing on P.R. being blasted right now and that I cant go have one , Im reading some hippy "smoking should be illegal" and everyone should think of Florida shit UGH! I mean I know we're not bitches so we dont need thoughts and prayers but goddamn!

Nicotine gum, patches, inhalers, e-cigs, and chewing tobacco. Kill yourself at varying speeds without bringing others into it with these five fashionable choices.

Florida shit UGH! I mean I know we're not bitches so we dont need thoughts and prayers but goddamn!

Oh. You're in Florida? And you're antsy because you can't partake in your habit as often as you'd like? I'm sorry, let me just tell the eye of the storm beating against my home you're having a hard time. (I'm being snarky. But in all seriousness, I'm worse off.)

But second hand smoke is the leading cause of second hand coolness.
