Big Tobacco is responsible for more illnesses and deaths than just about other industry. They've created a product that's highly addictive, ensuring a constant flow of customers, and then expect insurance companies, the government and taxpayers to foot the medical bills that result from their highly profitable product. Let THEM pay! I lost my father at an early age to the tobacco industry, and my son started smoking when he was a teenager and hasn't been able (or willing) to stop --which causes me a tremendous amount of worry and stress. Big Tobacco deserve all the fines and law suits they're subjected to --and then some!
