Earlier today, I gave a listen to the NPR aired program “1-A”. The moderator and his guests were discussing smoking / vaping. True, I did tune in a bit late, but, based on what I did hear, none of them thoroughly explored nicotine usage’s cause and effect relationship. Had they done so, they would’ve attempted to answer these key questions…
• Why is it that governments allow the tobacco industry to peddle, with impunity, a known deadly carcinogen and highly addictive drug?
• When smokers become vapers, are they not only kicking the nicotine addiction can down the road?
• How do we begin building a happier, healthier, stronger society, where folks find their lives so sufficiently satisfying, that tobacco products / by-products and other addictive drugs lose their allure?
There is no defense for Trump, don’t you dare try,
From immigrant moms’ arms, their babies he’ll pry,
Where’s your moral outrage?
re these tykes who he’ll cage,
The immigrant kids he torments till they cry!
Alternate Line #5: Some immigrant kids he torments, till they die!
