Yes. They were lied to.
No. (Please give a reason in comments).
I am an ex-smoker but I believe in personal responsibility. While I would love it if nobody smoked I am not in favor of it being made illegal. For some who don't have much hope that next cigarette is one of the few things they have to look forward to. I used to be one of those people. Now I have Jesus to look forward to. : )
no because everyone knows that smoking is bad for you. even i know it has niccotine in it and that is addictive. before you make a decision about anything you should look up/know about it. i mean come on, its something thats gonna harm your liver and body. So clearly if its that important it wouldnt kill you to take a minute and see side affects or results of smoking. Dont trust people by word of mouth. Especially if they are a company and you dont know much about their product.
