FDA, in first tobacco action, bans flavors - Yahoo! News
.......yeah, that must be it........
Anything that guides children away from smoking is a good thing. Bad, bad habit.
except that kids can't buy cigarettes and kids don't smoke cloves......it is largely a college fad
my point is that clove cigs are such a statistical insignificance.
I mean, why not simply ban cigarettes altogether?
Good question. But banning all together would be more difficult than Prohibition was in the 30s; totally unenforceable, and would just open up another criminal front for boot-legging, etc.
No, it has to be through patient and loving education that people will voluntarily give up the deadly weed, and not get hooked in the first place.
its only about taking on what you know you can win.......
the fact is that our government can't afford to lose tobacco tax revenune....
Parents teach your children, watch the Female Lion teach her Cubs.
Nothing can be 'banned' in America, drugs, guns, hookers etc all banned legally but all the kids have to do is go down to the School Yard and they can buy anything they want all that is needed is ($$$$$$$).
LEGALIZE EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING THEN TRAIN AND GUIDE YOUR CHILDREN TO KNOW RIGHT FROM WRONG.
FAT ASS PANT SUIT HILLARY IS FULL OF SH!T IT DOESN'T TAKE A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD PROPERLY IT TAKES LOVING DEVOTED PARENTS JUST LIKE THE LIONESS.
Keep the government out of your Child Rearing Keep the government out of your home Keep the government AWAY from your Health Care.

How much do the government collect from tobacco use??
The behavior police are a live and well I see. It's only a matter of time before someone comes for your donuts, Twinkies, or Fruity Pebbles. They're already maneuvering against soda. Land of the free my as...
Honestly, we're a nation of babies. We don't want freedom, otherwise there would be more of an outrage when stuff like this happens. We want to be coddled and told what we can and can't do.
Prohibition was the 1920s... and all but over with by 1930.
Do you EVER get your U.S. history correct?
Was that in all 57 states -- excluding Hawaii and Alaska, as my staff couldn't justify it -- or just some??
state and local taxes collected 15 billion nationally in 2006
Tobacco Tax Revenue
federal taxes are 1.01 per pack......I believe the total works out to a number similar to the state and local
so yeah, its a hefty chunk of change that governments would have to dig up somewhere else........imagine if your kids class was cancelled because people quit smoking?
