Why Are Cigarettes Legal?

It's a question I've asked and answered many times. The answer is simple Money. There's a lot of money in those tobacco leaves, from the farmer, to the health care clean ups costs, it's all about the flow of cash, legally and under the table.

So with our green push, today I saw a legitimate business person riding his bike to work this morning. He was wearing a tie, had his laptop case slung over his shoulder and was waiting for the light to change at Jefferson and Fairfield when he took a long drag on a smoke.

Isn't it unhealthy to smoke and pedal?

I did a Google search for the health benefits of smoking and all I could find was the ad you see here.

Anyway, back to work.
