Yet another story that reads like an Oxymorn testimonial. Or a statement from a moron.?

A.City staff assured the council it would not use the grant to pursue a smoking ban.

B.A list of programs the grant would fund contains entries for "usage bans," including a recommendation to organize grassroots efforts for a city- or countywide smoking ban in public places, increased enforcement of current smoking bans on school grounds, and possible zoning changes that would ban smoking on land zoned as a park or playground

For information on the "other side of the story" regarding some dangers to smoking and nicotine just click on the above link.

This is the kind of information that anti-smoking fanatics and various government agencies do not want you to know about.

Perhaps the American Cancer Society ought to study the effects of inhaling motor vehicle pollution in
regards to the dangers of diseases caused by this source. Leave smokers alone.

Just google this oxy-moron phrase, for more info:

motor vehicle pollution - health benefits.

Just ask the ACS. They get lots of money to create markets for Chantix.
