  1. THE Who What and Where OfSmoking Everywhere, Smoke Everywhere, and Smoking Anywhere?

    by , 01-25-2009 at 08:32 AM
    There have been an outrageous amount of complaints about a vendor using the name Smoking Everywhere both online and in kiosks at the mall. Bad products, worse service, no refunds, refused exchanges, sometimes never even getting shipped.
