A CAMPAIGNER plans to open a pro-smoking shop in Cumbria to support his bid to get the law changed.
Have your say
Ron Creer: I suppose we could say the same about all drinkers, drug users, any participants in dangerous sports i.e rugby, football, idiots who get the sudden urge to mountain bike or walk up the hills? Anybody being responsible for any pollutants being released which could harm another persons health, say car users or anybody who uses any form of public transport and of course anybody who uses electricity or gas...Please tell me I'm wrong Ron!
William T. Yes lung cancer is mainly caused by smoking. However the total figures of people being diagnosed with cancer only 10% of these are smokers. FACT.
So, some people want the choice to: a] spend an inordinate amount of money on something that harms them and those around them, b] roll some dried plant between paper, set fire to it and put it in their mouth, c] take up beds and professional medics' time on the NHS, and d] complain when others feel this is ridiculous.Yes, of course I understand. Now pass me a tissue so I can cry for them.
