Why do we blame people who smoke? Why can't we blame the producers! The manufacturers itself! And the POLITICIANS for allowing cigars, tobacco, cigarettes to be sold by the GOVERNMENT! Damn people!

They sell because people are crazy enough to go buy something that you know has harmful materials in it. You would not even dare to lick arsenic or cyanide...so why inhale it? Get some willpower and don't succumb to the government.
