I hate to say this, but could it be that all the smokers are already gone?

Most likely breathing the 33 pounds of pollution that ever person gets to breath or 6 tons a year. That is from just cars alone.

The average car puts out 7.7 tons of pollution a year,214 million cars on the road. 300 million people in the country. That adds up to 33 pounds a day per person or 6 tons a year. This is just cars. Now compare that to smoking. One car puts out 162 million cigarettes of carbon monoxide, 1.2 billion cigarettes of nitrous oxide, every .8 of a mile. Car exhaust can kill in minutes. Now would you rather breath a very small amount of SHS or 33 pounds of car exhaust.
The governments way of fixing any problem is to tax it.
Has nothing to do with green has to do with money and control.

That icon with the cofederate battle flag seems to only be available from Russian or Eastern European web sites and seems to have been pulled or deleted from American sites. I find that truly ironic, a Russian Redneck Southern Flag.
