The health impact of smoking

The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids has an optimistic spin on the effects of smoking:

“The cigarette tax is a proven strategy to protect thousands of kids from tobacco addiction,” said William V. Corr, Executive Director of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. “A higher cigarette tax is a win-win solution – a health win that will reduce tobacco use and save lives and a financial win that will raise much-needed revenue to fund important programs while also reducing tobacco-caused health care costs.”

So smokers, go ahead and keep lighting up! You’re keeping kids healthy.
