I hate Truth so much they keep on making these commercials to try to stop people from smoking. when they do so they give us facts like 'Big Tobaco spends millions to get kids hooked onto their cigarettes' I doubt thats true tobaco companies cant advertise on TV or on school property or anything, and buying cigs when your under 18 is not that easy. I dont ever get a Malboro add telling me that I should smoke yet I have some people telling me how mean the people who run tobaco companies are. they have a relatively recent add campaign where these people set up a stage in front of a tobaco building and then they screem out questions like 'why do you sell a product that kills your customers?' and then they show a stage where the people who should answer the question should be and its empty. if someone had come down and spoken on behalf of the tobaco company they wouldnt have been able to show them on TV because it would have been a pro-tabaco response.
I find this extremely unfair one side is allowed to bad mouth the other side and give information that they pulled out of their asses or changed to fit their needs yet the side that is being talked about is not aloud to defend themselves.
I guess what im trying to say is that tobaco companies are not to blame if someone smokes and dies because of smoking its not their fault. they sell a product for those who want to use it they know the risks its been beeten into them senslicely since a very young age and if they die the tobaco company is not to blame in the same way that gun companies are not responsible for murders
