Nicotine should be removed from cigarettes

Posted: Tuesday, September 12, 2006

Just as Coca-Cola had to remove cocaine from Coke, tobacco companies should be forced to remove nicotine from cigarettes. It’s such an obvious solution, but because politicians take millions from tobacco company lobbyists, and all levels of governments make billions off tobacco tax revenue, no one talks about it.

Smoking is an addiction, not a personal choice — nicotine has been manipulated by tobacco companies to increase their own revenue. No other industry could ever get away with this kind of near-criminal, immoral behavior.

Make a difference, for smokers and teenagers and take steps to really help us “Kick the Habit and Join the Unhooked Generation.” Contact your legislators and demand the removal of nicotine from cigarettes.
