You need to do your homework. In that regard, non-smokers are the beneficiaries because smokers spend their entire lives paying into the system, but since they die sooner, most of them don't benefit from it.


The irony here is that this would have been the best defense the tobacco companies could have used when several overly-greedy state AGs sued them. Of course they could never have used it.

How come you crossed out "potheads" in my post and replaced it with "non-smokers"? I was specifically talking about chronic potsmokers.

Because I don't know that potsmokers hate cig smokers, but I do know how non-smokers feel about cig smokers. We hate 'em.

There's no benefit to cigs, and so much harm that they should be illegal. They should be eradicated from the earth entirely

Does anyone else see the irony here? lol

Nope, missed it I guess.

If you hate tobacco and marijuana, you hate freedom and you hate America.

Without tobacco there would be no America as we know it.

Could you say the same about slavery? I suspect so.

Hey, without the domineering British Crown, they'd be no America today as you know it either. You are welcome. :)

Just about everything in American history made America what it is today. Curiously enough, this principle applies to other countries as well. Well, other countries with a history. Oceania would be exempt, I guess ;)
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

No, America would have come up just fine without slavery. Slavery made most southerners poorer. A different system of tenant farming would have come about.
