Peppoj here again! As i have mentioned before, me and my family where on vacation on the Canary Islands and i took the time to check the cigarette prices, since i smoke. And guess what! A pack of Lucky’s was only 1,6 €!! and a carton 14,50 € It really shouldn’t be a surprise since the Canary Islands is not a member of the european union. Anyway, since it was so cheap I decided yo buy a whole carton, unfortunately the EU restrictions only allow me to buy ONE carton with 200 cigarettes, damn.
A little history lesson about the marlboro man
A cool humorous video i found on YouTube about children’s connection to smoking.
It’s about two guys walking into a children’s playground and talking to the children about cigarette smoking and how cool it is.
Tobacco fucking owns the world, including me. It’s impossible to have a walk on the street, go in to a supermarket and not see some ad for Marlboro or Level cigarettes. Can an addiction have such a big impact on society? Or is it something else? Like the economy today.
I mean, think about it, tobacco is such a big part of our society today that you don’t even notice all the signs and people smoking around you. I’m not saying that I’m against tobacco, quite the opposite, i love tobacco. And i would never want anyone to take that away from me, sure it’s bad for your health, but hey, it’s a part of society ;)
What do you think?
Slightly misleading cigarette commercial
