    5 of the 11 paragraphs in the letter are going back to "for the kids" argument.

    I was thinking along the lines of who funds a lot of these groups? Seems like an alignment along Pharma ties?

    Makes me wonder if "we" still believe it's a good idea to capitulate to that argument, as opposed to exposing it for the fallacy that it is.

    My tin foil senses are pointing to Public Health, you know, the ones who are directly funded by tobacco tax revenue.

    Kinda a Mixed Bag I's say.

    Some have Private Funding.
    Some get some Government Funding.
    Some get Funding from Membership.
    Some Funding Isn't Easily Traced.
    And some get a Mixture of the any/all of the Above.

    That's why I don't have any.
    Children impair the thinking processes of those who have them.

    Dogs are a far better option.

    Hey now, not always.

    I'm still capable of understanding that if a product is not harmful or addictive to an adult, it's also not harmful or addictive to a child, even after decades of brainwashing and word association.

    Too many people are at risk of having their paychecks/funds cut off by people not smoking cigarettes and getting healthier.

    Public health my :censored:.
    They don't give a rat's :censored: about public health - if they did they would be handing e-cigarettes out like they do with condoms and such.
    Stupidity abounds.

    That's because you are intelligent.
    Most people are not.
