Smoking is responsible for more than 30 percent of all cancer deaths, said Dr. Douglas Blayney, president of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. The bill, he said, "should have a huge impact on reducing the death and disease brought on by tobacco use."
Would be interesting to know what causes the other 70 % and why that is not addressed as a more urgent and dire problem than going after the Smokers. Furthermore it seems this is like the Gun law stating Guns kill people which is wrong it is Idiots with guns that kill people. Just as a Gun cannot get up and walk out the home and decide to kill someone. A cigarette or Tobacco cannot decide to give someone Cancer. The human body has cancer cells in them period all have it just in some the cells are more prone to be virulent it is called Genetics.
