I'm truly disgusted that you published an article, let alone a front-pager, that glorifies tobacco sales and use [“The Unusual Suspects,” July 10, Xpress]. Love, food, drink and music are gifts from our higher selves. I don't believe in whatever god you say brought tobacco.
It's time we as a society begin to see and speak of tobacco peddling and smoking for what they are: Drug pushing and assault with a deadly weapon, respectively.
The next whiff of secondhand smoke I catch, can I grab the offender's cancer stick, and shove it in his eye to put in out in my own self defense? Tobacco is a gift from God — really? It's a filthy, disgusting, "screw me and everybody else" habit.
Hey, nicotine addicts! E-cigs are here. Grow up and keep your drug of choice to yourself.
