Hello Tom,
I get to see what smokers lungs look like in firsthand while their chest are cut open. I work at a hospital and constantly going in and out of surgeries where they do either heart cases or checking lungs with surgical cameras/scopes. I can't tell you enough how spotty/black the people's lungs look like compared to ones who don't smoke. There are millions of small veins in our lungs where we get to watch them during a surgical procedure and it is shocking to see they all filled with tiny black spots which caused by smoking cigarettes. A none smoker has their lungs/veins all healthy, pink with with no spotty muscle tissues. It s so sad to see people still don't want to quit this despite the fact that it is known to cause hundreds of health issues.

I think it is a lame attempt by a nonsmoker to achieve the unachievable. Hard core smokers will just get annoyed at the Man for removing the menthol from his ciggy butts. They will just adapt to non menthol

I believe all drugs should be legal. If you want to put them in your lungs, in your belly, or shove em up your ass, it should be legal. Suicide should be legal. People who abuse their bodies this way are probably depressed to the point where we should just let them go out behind the barn and end it. As always, I could be wrong.
