    Liquor kills too, they tried killing booze, but that didn't work. Now states are approving POT for legal sale. So people are drinking booze, smoking pot and having a cigarette or a cigar.

    That maybe true, but the cigarettes will be changed for joints which stupid people think are harmless.

    What is the difference if somebody is dying from cáncer from smoking cigarettes or joints?

    And besides, no person in the world is worth $28Bil anyway.
    Even if the companey is guilty of something, the penalty sould be medical bills plus earning potential through his natural lifespan. Nothing more.



    The award was 23 billion and it was a penalty for bad behavior by the cigarette company.

    In the long run, whether you or anyone else agree with this award won't change it, it'll be up to the courts.
