Seriously! I heard it on the news today! Well actually, today is not the day I heard it but anyone, I heard it on the news 8/8/12.
It’s Official! 3rd hand smoke from cigarettes (ie., smoke on someone’s clothes that got there from being around someone who was smoking) is now hazardous to your health! OMFG! Seriously?
Now a lil history, I am an EX-Smoker. I quit November 1, 2007 and haven’t gone back…..yet. Does this mean I’m a non-smoker? Technically, imo, NO. I means that I quit for today.
Ok, back to the title. I found an article online. You can read it here,
I have to laugh and I guess I should apologize, but Come On! Really?
If smoking cigarettes is that much of a danger to our health and well-being AND is now proven to be dangerous via 2nd hand and NOW 3rd HAND smoke, why not just BAN CIGARETTES!
WHY AREN’T PEOPLE JUMPING ON THE BAN WAGON TO MAKE CIGARETTES ILLEGAL?
HELL, they are already trying to change gun laws! Statistics probably prove that CIGARETTES kill more people than PEOPLE shooting and killing PEOPLE! For that matter, probably more than VEHICLE ACCIDENTS!
Seriously, I don’t mean to rant and I’m not judging anyone who smokes, cause as an EX-Smoker, I still believe Smokers have Rights. However, there is a time (especially with our wonderful Government of today), STEP UP, QUIT PUTTING OUT DANGER WARNINGS AND BAN THE SHIT ALREADY!
Ugh, ok, rant done.
Smoke up baby!
