...terrorists killed hundreds of thousands of people a year in the US? What if they killed about 400,000 in 2006? Would we pull out all the big guns, hunt them down and wipe them off the face of the earth? Sure we would. And those who did the dirty work would be heroes!
What if they also made many more sick?
What if they also addicted many more to a drug?
What IS a mass weapon of destruction anyway? Ten years or so, 4 million deaths, countless more sick, some very very sick, many addicted.
So exactly why is tobacco legal?
