Smoke and Mirrors


Selling tobacco is illegal but millions of retailers are getting away with it.

According to the World Health Organisation, smoking kills more than five million people every year. And it’s not because of an unwanted side-effect, a bad batch or the consequences of over-indulgence or misuse. Tobacco, when it is used exactly as the manufacturer intended it to be, will kill you and it will be a long slow painful death. The most surprising thing is that everyone who smokes already knows this.

So people who smoke are deliberately poisoning themselves. That means that smoking is just a slow form of suicide. Suicide is not illegal but helping someone to commit suicide is against the law. This is what tobacco retailers are doing. They know that the product they sell will kill the people who buy it if it’s used properly. How are they getting around the laws on assisted suicide?

Craic On!
