Cheryl Ruff, my goodness are you innocent or what? Franklin County has the highest radon levels in the state which is a major cause of lung cancer. What is being done about that? Get off of cigarettes and get addicted to Big Pharma nic patches? I applaud people who want to quit but this is a heavy price to pay.

This is unbelievable. Do you people know who paid for smoking bans? The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the "non"profit foundation of Johnson and Johnson. And who PROFITS from the sale of Nicorette, Nicoderm and Commit? JOHNSON AND JOHNSON!!! And, because the RWJF owns 10s of millions of share in JnJ stock, so does the non-profit that paid for the bans. Here's the best part! JnJ CORNERED THE MARKET on patches, gum and lozenges. Yep. See if there are any other products on the market. They paid for the laws that drive the need for their products. And that's LEGAL? They've paid grant money to get the ACS to push Medicaid to pay for their products. Dear God, it's the best marketing strategy pharmaceutical and "non" profit money can buy.

Think about THIS. They talk about Big Tobacco marketing cigarettes to kids. When's the last time you saw an ad for cigarettes? When the last time you saw one for nicotine gum that WHITENS while you use it? KIDS can chew gum, get a nicogine buzz AND whiten their teeth.

Just when is someone going to investigate this fraud?

How stupid, knock nicotine while you push nicotine. The only difference is tobacco Co offers theirs and big pharma funds smoking bans to try to force the use of theirs for profit which rapes business owners of their business & employees lose jobs

They are getting very careless
Get a laugh here, http://www.thefakenews.com/nicorette039.html
For something not so funny and certainly not fake, think about the flavor names for Nicorette gum, obviously aimed at "the children" who can buy and use the gum anywhere they want, even in geometry class.
Fresh mint for the breath conscious
Nicorette White Ice™ Mint
The Brighter Way to Quit Smoking. Calm Cravings And Whiten Teeth.
Cinnamon Surge for those who like candy....like "the children"
Nicorett e Fruit Chill Gum! Chill is favorite lingo for the teen set.

How can a company demonize nicotine, say that it is trying to get teens to stop or not start smoking, then provide nicotine in gum with easy access and great appeal to children and get away with it? Nicorette, the gateway drug for future smokers. Get it at your local candy store.

What are you, an idiott? What are we supposed to do about radon? It's a naturally occuring substance, cig smoke is not. Your response is totally unrelated to the question.

Someone should investigate where your brain has gone. So what's your solution? Stay addicted to cigs because J&J owns stock in it? Once you quit you no longer need the patches, so your point is utterly stupid. Your post seems to say "don't quit because J&J will profit from it".

You know it occurs to me that someone allegedly from halfway across the country, who boasts of being a conservative redneck, could only be on a bulletin board in the most liberal state in the country for one reason and one reason only, to troll. I think we see who the real troll around here is.

they pay for smoking bans to profit from smoking cessation products which drives up their stocks for more profits. Smoking bans are profitable scams for them at all cost to business owners and society.

Just think, RWJF (JnJ) grants to hospitals, hospitals go smoke free, profits for both the hospitals & JnJ from the patches

Grants to universities, they will dance to anybody's tune for a buck

Nicotine gum legal for kids, wow, increased profits

Scam!!!
