  • 30.06.2014 Alexandria Tobacco Users Are Unhappy With New Law

    There is a certain irony to it, some have said.Smokers in Alexandria will have to leave local discount cigarettes stores to light up the products they just bought there.At least 25 feet from the stores to be exact, starting Jan. 1 after the Alexandria City Council passed an ordinance Oct. 4 banning smoking cigarettes in businesses previously exempt from state and local smoking cigarettes bans, including bars and buy cigarettes stores.And some tobacco users are not happy."They think the City Council way overstepped their boundaries," said Vonne Neal, owner of Alexandria's Smoke Shop." With...

  • 18.10.2012 New Jersey Considers New Taxes On Non-cigarette Tobacco Products

    Little cigars, which are taking increasing space on area tobacco-shop shelves, are shaped and smoked just like cigarettes. But because New Jersey taxes them differently, they cost nearly one-third the price.Over the past several years, increased state and federal taxes have helped turn some smokers on to less-taxed cigarettes store products, local shop owners and anti-smoking cigarettes groups say.New Jersey has a $2.70 tax per cigarette pack, and the federal government has a $1.01 excise tax it enacted two years ago.That sixth-highest cigarette tax in the country may entice more smokers to...

  • 10.09.2012 Free Patches For Smokers

    Quitting smoking cigarettes just got a little easier. For a limited time, the California Smokers' Helpline is sending callers from Nevada County free nicotine patches. Eligible cigarettes store users who call 1-800-NO-BUTTS and enroll in the free telephone-based cessation program will receive a free two-week starter kit of patches, while supplies last.The patches are an FDA-approved treatment proven to help smokers kick the habit. They release nicotine into the bloodstream through the skin, reducing withdrawal symptoms and slowly weaning smokers off nicotine. Nevada County was one of 34...

  • 09.09.2012 Films Subsidized By State Promote Smoking

    California taxpayers subsidize major motion pictures that depict smoking cigarettes, which promotes the unhealthy habit and undermines efforts to keep young people from lighting up, according to UCSF researchers.In a report published Tuesday in PLoS Medicine, the researchers say the state and other governments may be violating their own health policies and goals when they subsidize or offer tax credits to makers of movies that directly or indirectly promote smoking cigarettes."We have a situation where governments today are now spending taxpayer money to sell discount cigarette online to...

Smoking TV Ads Insulting

As an ex-smoker who enjoyed “the habit” for many years and quit “cold turkey” (no patches, counseling or hand-holding) over seven years ago, I feel comfortable commenting on some recent happenings in the “war against smokers.”

It is an insult to the intelligence of the average person to present the current television commercial showing a convenience store clerk reading a book, chewing gum and generally appearing incompetent (it is also an insult against every real convenience store worker’s competence!) informing a customer (who appears unable to walk and chew gum at the same time) what his share of the cost of smoking cigarettes is while buying a “slumpy.” This ad is certainly a tie for “Worst TV Commercial” with the old anti-smoking cigarettes commercial portraying a barmaid who hated her job and her customers! This commercial portrays a convenience store clerk who would be terminated by her employer before the end of her first day on the job with the attitude displayed in this commercial.

If local tobacco-free coalitions, local district health units and the state Health Department are really sincere in wanting to reduce threats to our health and well-being, they should:

Admit that those of the older generation who still smoke cigarettes are “doomed,” stop hounding them and leave them be in peace.

Admit government cannot legislate or attempt to enforce certain moral/

health issues (look at the abject failure of Prohibition 1920-33).

Research the problem being faced in many states (such as New York) where “bootleg” online cigarettes are being brought in by the semi-load to avoid local/state taxes. We don’t need this in North Dakota.

Quit wasting the taxpayers’ money (the cigarettes for sale settlement money belongs to the residentss of North Dakota) on the current plethora of radio, television, billboards and print copy that insult our intelligence. The only people benefiting from these commercials are the advertising agencies that make them and the media that runs/prints them.

Begin to reduce the “anti-smoking cigarettes staff” in the county and state buildings around North Dakota. It appears that they almost are beginning to outnumber beleaguered smokers.

If we seriously want to benefit the health and well-being of North Dakota residents, then all of the money saved by implementing steps three and four should be given to local schools (public and private) to implement a long-term educational program for K-12 on the dangers of smoking cigarettes. These educational programs could also include some other issues important to young people, including the dangers of using mobile devices and/or texting while driving, suntanning booths and proper diets.
