    smoking compensation .

    ok so smokers sueing tobbaco companies isn't new but given that despite all the medical warnings over the decades which they chose to ignore, do you think they should be compesated if they fall ill because of their decision to smoke ?.The lawsuits sucess thus far has been basically because the tobbacco companies didn't issue their own warnings.

    this is not an anti smoking post and i am not saying that smokers deserve to get ill, in fact i wish everyone good health, but are they really victims or self perpetrators?
    Even now with the cases proving the direct link between smoking and cancer people still smoke

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    If you choose to smoke after warnings have been given you deserve whatever ill may fall upon you.
    I can see some poor guy going to his lawyer with a cigarrette in his mouth.

    I agree with u vidcc, as a smoker, i wouln't dream of suing a tobacco company,
    or a local council, if i tripped over a raised flagstone. but a grasping lawyer would
    he's out to make money no matter who pays, sue their own grandmother some of them
