because even if you dont smoke you can die from 2nd hand smoke since most smokers are careless with how and where they smoke, even with the new laws, most of the time they arent enforced. Im tired of being poisoned and not being able to get away from it. We have the right to breathe clean air, but cigarette companies do not have the right to sell illness and death. [and no i dont want to hear how many other things are poisonous and how other things are bad for you but they arent being taken away, therefore we shouldnt bother, because we Should: this is black&white] This should be treated the same as any other act of poisoning (hazardous waste dumping or like that episode of Law&Order where the apartment complex was being treated with dangerous chemicals) because even though it takes longer to hurt people, the delivery and outcome are the same. I hope that one day this will end and people can look back and say "Wow why didnt they do that sooner, i can't believe that was allowed to go on happening", because its one of the leading causes of preventable death in the world.
