Why are Tobacco Companies always hiding behind bar owners, convenience store owners and tobacco farmers?
Big Tobacco doesnt care about what happens to bar owners when theres a smoking ban. When theirs a smoking ban Big Tobacco disguises themselves as the bar owners who fear that they will lose business. They put out hit pieces like smoking bans will hurt jobs, kill bars, smoking bans infringe on smokers freedoms and all that sort of stuff. They set up a front group called the National Smokers Alliance which is disguised as a grassroots smokers organization fighting for their rights. The real goal is to help tobacco companies make maximize profits by preventing any tobacco control. They also might hide behind the tobacco farmers and convenience store owners to fight tobacco taxes and regulations. So what you see is "aw those poor tobacco farmers or those poor bar owners, itl cost em their livelyhood". Whenever Big Tobacco fights anything, they never appear as the tobacco industry. They always need something to hide behind. Why dont they be honest?
