"Anti-smoking groups say while smokeless tobacco cigarettes reduce secondhand smoke concerns, the smoker's health is still at risk."
so what are the risks? this article seems pointless, with no actual valuable information reported.
I nearly gag every time I see or smell chew spit. It's foul. I've even seen woman using chew. I can't imagine kissing someone with that crud in their mouth.
There are no words strong enough to convey how horribly disgusting and repulsive the habit is.
let's see..this is a legal product. There is no harmful smoke to society, it doesn't alter the mind like alcohol. So there is no downdide to the public and some people find it enjoyable. Look for legislation soon to restrict or ban the product.
Smokeless tobacco is a good way to prevent pregnancy. No woman likes to kiss a face with brown slime oozing from the lips.
What will the anti-smokers do now? There is no one left to protect? Can't tax chewers.. Ain't hurting anyone else but themselves
I The AP would better serve the public with a story about "Broken Promises to Our Children"
Obama raised tobacco tax. Those who roll their own ( cheaper, less chemicals, self distinguishing ) saw tax go from $1.09 per pound to $24.78 per pound, rewarding his Big Tobacco contributors and hurting the working poor.
I just hope they don't spit all over. But kids in high school? Oh, this is sad, it's so harmful. How do teachers not see it?
Plus it causes a head change (or people wouldn't do it), so these kids must get sick!
Cancer of the lips, tongue, throat, stomache, anyone?
Ok, OK. Chew is disgusting to others, agreed. It is the user that is affected. No one else. Leave it be.
Haha, Crockett, that media would be anything other than yours.
The people who support Big Tobacco are those who USE IT. Big Tobacco was AGAINST this tax of course, because, as it's meant to, it deters use.
Tobacco is a choice, not a necessity.
I thought at first that this article was referring to those weird electric cigarettes that you see people sucking on occasionally. I didn't make the connection to chewing tobacco until I read the comments. But I can't remember the last time I encountered anyone using "chawin' baccy". In fact, I didn't know it was still being sold. Snuff I know you can get, and have tried. I didn't care for it, it made me sneeze.
JRC it's not just the user that is affected. I am when I accidentally step in it. Or kids when they roll onto it in the grass at the park. People spit it anywhere, just like smokers flick their butts out the car window.
I wouldn't have such a problem with cigarettes and chew if people had a little decency, dignity and respect.
