I love watching old movies. Tobacco smoke and booze everywhere. I don't smoke or drink, but I love the freedom that used to exist.
It was a fine time to enter the workforce (1968). Smoke at your desk, drinks after work, dollar shots at the bar.

I miss my all-to-brief mis-spent yooth, but I'm making up for it in my old age.:grinpimp:



^^Reminds me of clubbin' in Malibu.:massey:
You could've left that to my generation.

Dammit Screwy your generation had ONE JOB!

we are bankrupt now as in we spend 1tril per year and only bring in 750 bil.

with out the tobacco tax money it it would be like 1 tril / 250bil.



ill have to hunt for the sources of my claim, I got it from 60min type news story years ago.

From your article -
Since 1998, governments at all levels have collected more than $484.6 BILLION in cigarette taxes (including sales tax) and payments from smokers.

Thats 1/2 trillion in 14 years not every year. The total taxes from cigarettes would fund the gov for about 4 days.

CVS will lose money and some other shop/store/gas station will get more money. I don't see a problem with it. Didn't CVS also pull booze as well? I haven't been inside one for years...

Me too. Now walgreens needs to follow suit cause I like them more
I'm trying to think of one good reason; as to why selling tobacco products or not is the reason you will shop there?
Stereotyping the people who shop at that store because they sell tobacco products? or does it involve corporate issues you two have a problem with..?

I'm just curious, not trying to stur anything up.
It makes no sense at all to me.
That's the same thing as to not shopping at 7-11 because they sell porno mag's..(well use to..not sure if they do anymore)..
If you don't partake in it, who cares what a company sells/stocks in their stores?

what if said company supported and sold anti land use stickers and magazines and advertised that fact as a "green" store or some shit. Does that still not matter because you dont partake?

Edit: because lots of people here boycott brands and stores that sell those brands on principle. No different then avoiding a store that makes a lot of money off philip morris or whatever

Nearly 20 people are smoking every minute of everyday out by the back bay of a bldg I work in. Its the sites designated smoking area. The bay door remains shut but is not sealed all that well, so I have to smell it everyday when I am in that bldg.

Also it delays work cause they always have to take a smoke break before starting any new task.

I just dont like the effect smoking addiction has on my non smoking life.

Does anyone else find it ironic that as a society, the us is punishing tobacco users while giving pot users a pass?
Really. Please explain. I doubt that:

1.)Pot smoking will be allowed in restaurants
2.)Pot will be sold at CVS
3.)Pot smoking will qualify you for a health insurance discount
4.)Driving after smoking pot will be legal
5.)Etc
6.)Etc
7.)Etc

Legal pot is very much like legal cigarettes. You take the risk, you live with the consequences.
