"It is a very hard undertaking to seek to please everybody."
Publilius Syrus, philosopher (~100 BC)


Non-Smoked Nicotine Aids Blood Flow:
The finding surprised researchers and could have implications for some medical treatments and the long-term use of nicotine patches.

Particulate Sources:
Averaged emissions of fine particles in grams per hour.

Side Stream Smoke:
A list of allowable limits for several components of side stream smoke for an unventilated room of 100 cubic meters.

Getting Drunk on Rebellion:
Engs calls this the "forbidden-fruit" syndrome. "Anytime you prohibit something, there is going to be a reactance motivation to go overboard,"

Supreme Court Strikes Down Tobacco Ad Limits:
Justice Sandra Day O'Connor also said for the court majority that the outdoor and point-of-sale advertising regulations for smokeless tobacco and cigars violated constitutional free-speech rights.
U.S. high court strikes down tobacco ad:
The ruling was hailed by the tobacco industry.

Clove Cigarettes:
In Indonesia over 90% of all cigarettes consumed annually are clove cigarettes. World wide delivery.

We Are Everyday People:

Smoking out lawsuits:
I can only imagine the award that will some day be given to the first lifetime victim of Ben & Jerry, the hippie entrepreneurs who "should have known" about the addictive powers of Chunky Monkey and Chubby Hubby.

Wood products to have arsenic label:
The labels are part of an EPA program announced Tuesday that is designed to let people know about the presence of chromated copper arsenate (CCA), a powerful pesticide used in the lumber.

From The Mailbag:

Dover, DE: House lawmakers delayed any action on Sen. David McBride's bill that would banish smoking in most public places until they reconvene in January.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A suit seeking more than $1 billion in damages from tobacco companies for the deadly link between smoking and asbestos was dropped suddenly by the plaintiffs on Friday.

The Lubbock City Council should be congratulated for passing a smoking ban and forgetting history. Before the United States started passing smoking bans, it was Nazis Germany, at the direction of Adolph Hitler, where smoking bans were all the rage. During W.W.II, over 60% of American soldiers were smokers. They fought against the anti-smoking, fascist Nazis to preserve individual liberty and freedom. Hundreds of thousands of smokers died to keep freedom alive for their country and their descendents. Why is it now a good thing to trample on individual liberty and freedom in the name of public health when public health was the same reason that Hitler and his Nazis used to ban smoking?
Tom Graves

Justice Sandra Day O'Connor wrote for the court...

"From a policy perspective, it is understandable for the states to attempt to prevent minors from using tobacco products before they reach an age where they are capable of weighing for themselves the risks and potential benefits of tobacco use, and other adult activities,"
