    The perfect hustle.
    Subsidize the tobacco.
    Get people addicted.
    Tax on the back end.

    And they wonder why we won't take their shot.

    Who is this we? We figured out cigarettes were bad after they were commonplace and due to their addictive nature people wanted to keep them. The liars were not the governments but the tobacco companies themselves.

    Don’t fool yourself, governments make tons of money from tobacco taxes. Cigs will always around. Granted, it’s a filthy, disgusting habit, but if you wanna smoke, have at it.
    The CEO is making a marketing calculation, call for the product you sell to be eliminated, thus cutting of the knees off the other smaller competitors, when the dust settles, hopefully you are king of the hill.

    Started as medical pot, then turns to recreational pot. Thats when you have crossed the line. Its no good. You will find out. It passed here in South Dakota as medical. Happened in Oregon and look at Oregon now. You will see.

    You are talking about Medical marijuana, I am talking about when they pass ** Recreational Marijuana** that has happened in every state that passes Medical MJ. Not long 1 maybe 2. The Recreational MJ passes and its another drain on your state. Keep it medical and I am fine, but they never do that. Again, you will see.

    PS- I guess its better to die over time in a tent city, smoking your lungs out, than take to much Fentanyl and die in one night, right after you just got your tent raised and your new flip flops at the rescue mission.;)

    Just keep toking I guess. I was in Oregon when pot went from totally illegal, to medical use only, and now there are over 11 pot shops in that Community, we hauled ###, but there is no winning with people that want to use pot ( recreational pot ) not medical, not talking about medically here, that is just to get started with. If it was going to be limited to people that need it medically I would be fine with it.

    It was in the high school, it was on the street. If you use you know why Trucking bans it right? People in pajamas going in those store in those nike sleepers with socks, hoody over their head to buy it. My goodness. That's all I know about it.

    Again, I don't want to argue with you or anyone. Just giving you my point. okay? Thank you. Good Day.

    Time to do my 4 mile walk this morning. Thank you though. Life is too short for smoking pot everyday. People do not need pot AGAIN... not talking about the medical folks out their that want to use. That is very important here, keep it to medical thanks. Takes me 1.75 hours to do my 4 miles. See you soon.
