harleyrider, can you grow as much as you want?
In Canada, growers can only grow about 7% of their quota.
The US has disbanded the tobacco quota system and now we can grow as much as we want........but remember you have to store it if the prices arent right. Then you got to save it for the next years auctions....tobacco like any crop is subject to economic conditions.

No, it only points out that I did not grow up in Canada but was born in Europe. I have an accent as well.
I do not smoke. I used to but quit 20 years ago.
I believe in the right of adults to make their choice.
Does that choice you speak of allow for the adult Private property owners to allow smoking on their premises if they choose.??

My belief is that it should allow adult private property owners to choose whether they allow smoking in their homes or places of business.
But in Canada, we do not have that choice. Restaurants, stores, government and public offices, or any building are all non-smoking. Smokers have to stay 9 metres away from any building to smoke outside.

Damn shame.
I remember having really nice time sitting in with some musicians in Stratford a few years back.
I wouldn't be surprised if that particular bar is now boarded up.

It is wrong to be planting tobacco when so many people are starving. Smokers are selfish and heartless.
Non Smokers need to quit eating so much.. They are the fastest people on earth. Save some food for the starving people please.

Who cares, Im going out on my terms not yours.

Plus how do you know it isnt caused by all the co2 emission you non smokers are putting into the air..???? Look how the auto traffic has increased in the last 20 years ??

Have you gotten your check up from the neck up yet? You know you have the genes from a riff raff, degenerate, scumbag. Thats why I worry about you getting your check up from the neck up. I think you are possible one, and your not admitting it.?

Now a word about the topic at hand: I thought the non smoking zealots said tobacco was on the decline all over the world ?? Why the increase in demand ??

"the peoples democratic socialist state of canada"

Unfortunately, yes.
Convenience stores also have to hide cigarettes being sold behind so-called power walls (covered shelf). If a customer wants to know what brands are available they have to look through a binder where the different brands are listed.
That is the law since May 31, 2008.

To SmokerDude: In Canada statistics show that within the legal cigarette industry sales have
gone down but contraband sales account for 40% of cigarettes sold so all these laws are not helping,
they are only hurting legal business.

In Ontario, Canada the premier also wants to make it illegal to smoke in your own car when a child is present and will charge you with child abuse if you do so.
