    Ouch, i'm not that addicted but i do smoke.

    It has been made more annoying by it being banned in public places and this idea being put forward of it being banned in the car.

    I support a massive increase of the price of cigarettes, because smoking has a cost to society.

    It provokes cancers among both smokers and non-smokers. That costs a lot of money. Those who are the cause should pay for the consequences.

    I do not smoke around people who do not. How am I causing non-smokers to have cancer?

    For the rest, is that not true to some extent of almost all sin type products?

    You do get a thanks for your post, but that is just to bump up your count.

    I agree. There should be a huge fast-food tax so society can avoid obesity and heart-disease. Alcohol needs a huge tax, it contributes to so many potential harms one could only begin, cable tv because it rots the brain of society, .......... there is no end!

    Who's gonna pay for your cancer?

    Maybe in the USA it's different, but here, we have an universal healthcare and everybody is paying for the society. Healthy people pay as much as those who smoke 50 cigarettes a day, and that is not fair since I'm much less likely to have a cancer.

    So, to make it fair again, cigarettes should be very expensive.

    That way, smokers pay for their cancers, and they are also likely to smoke less.

    And I don't say that for cigarettes only, it's the same for alcohol, unhealthy food, polluting cars...every single thing that has a cost to society has to be taxed, so that those who consume these "bad things" are the ones who pay for the consequences of their uncivic behavior.

    Re: Tobacco

    I used to be a chain smoker (about 2 packs a day) and then I quit 3 years ago. Though every rare now and then I'll have a few hits from an electronic cigarette, though they are non-nicotine so I guess that doesn't really count.

    Re: Tobacco

    I don't smoke, I sort of did infrequently back when I was in college until one day I realized how stupid it was and quit cold turkey and never went back. I don't care if anyone else does, so long as they don't do it around me.

    As for taxes, I don't support high taxes at all, but if you have to tax something, I really don't mind it being cigarettes, so long as things like alcohol are also equally taxed. Fast food really doesn't make sense, you have to eat to live, you do not have to smoke or drink to live, they're not in the same category at all.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    The Good Reverend enjoys the finest puros available at appropriate times, Often with a single malt such as the Macallan 18 yr with a splash of branch water..
