    beginning May, 2013. No more raucherclubs. Only exception is for private parties. Nanny state increasing.

    I spent 12 years in West Germany and don't recognize NRW. Please explain and, if possible, provide a link.

    Thanx.

    Germans are smart enough to quit :smoke: . I did 9 months ago. :) The HC costs/end of life care are just too burdensome for the living.

    australia just instituted their gray pack policy too. Look at the mini me computer at 1:19 Australia's cigarette plain packaging laws come into force - video

    There are a lot more expensive ways to die when you get older. What will they have euthanisia centers to lower costs in the future with the people living longer? Dimentia will skyrocket as people live longer, and they won't be able to care for themselves.

    Every time I go anywhere where they sell cigarettes I thank the Lord that I quit more than 10 years ago. Today they are selling packs of the blasted things for what I once paid for a carton!

    Also, my house and clothing and car no longer smell like burning excrement.

    I quit when California raised taxes on cigarettes specifically to provide health care for poor (anchor baby) children.

    When everyone quits smoking and liberals need something else to tax the hell out of, what will they target?

    I can tell you right now ....they will tax alcohol and coffee to begin with!

    It's the 1920s Prohibition all over again.

    Only now is worse!:mad:
