    This Should Be a No-brainer

    I have a close friend, recently divorced, who is dealing with this issue regarding her two toddlers. They got back from a visit with their father, who smokes, and their mother took them out of town for a long-planned family event. They were unable to...

    Yes.

    Because if they can't keep themselves from sinking their teeth in candy, what more an intoxicatingly lucsious stick of tobacco and deadly stuff? They'd probably get hooked on the stuff faster than a legal person would.   They make it for 18 years old and above 'coz the...

    Smoking Should Be Illegal In General..

       Seriously. I cannot stand when other people smoke around me, especially when they don't even care that they are doing it! Just because you choose to inhale such toxins, doesn't mean I would like to! If I wanted to, I would smoke myself. But, obviously, I do not...
