Tobacco is IN the SAME food group as potato, tomato, cauliflower, green pepper, chiliís, egg plant and other foods. They ALL contain nicotine. Are those the next bans?

I know a guy suffering from lymphoma, I will tell him to start smoking or chewing would probably be better.
It's for sure he won't get any help from the ACS unless they give him some reading material like they did another friend of mine who was hurt very badly by financial problems while fighting breast cancer. No she got no help at all, and begged them to help her.
