The Tobacco Problem
Analogy | Facts | Greed & Fear | Knowing Good From Bad

 

Knowing Good From Bad, Right From Wrong...

It's challenging...

·when "good guys" and the Marlboro Man both wear white hats...

· when tobacco ads, masquerading as public service announcements, claim that tobacco companies "don't advertise to children" and they "don't want kids to smoke"...

· when Bill Cosby, known as Mr. Cigar, is chosen to host the children's TV program "Kids Say The Funniest Things"...

· when tobacco company CEO's swear before Congress that tobacco is not addictive--and they get away with it...

· when our President pushes a "Save the Children" program, knowing that such a strategy will create a backlash and kids will smoke even more because the ones being targeted resent being called children...

· when our government subsidizes the tobacco industry...

· when all of our major Presidential candidates accept campaign contributions from tobacco companies...

· when our President declares a War on Drugs and refuses to include tobacco...

· when our government allows a deadly product to be manufactured and sold...


What is a child to think?

Or an adult, for that matter!
