“Tobacco is the only consumer product that kills when used exactly as the manufacturer intends. It does so at an alarming rate – one in two long-term users will eventually be killed by their habit.

While the use of tobacco is declining in higher income countries, elsewhere it continues to increase. Nearly 80% of the world’s one billion smokers now live in low- and middle-income countries, a figure that continues to increase.”

The Guardian – Big tobacco targets the young in poor countries – with deadly consequences Anna Gilmore


“The major tobacco companies now spend about $10.5 billion per year (nearly $29 million every day) to promote their products; and many of their marketing efforts directly reach kids.” 

“Numerous internal tobacco industry documents, revealed in the various tobacco lawsuits, show that the tobacco companies have perceived kids as young as 13 years of age as a key market, studied the smoking habits of kids, and developed products and marketing campaigns aimed at them”

“What is the dose of cbd oil to use?”
