This post is not about the bad effects or smoking or promoting smoking or such. If you are offended by posts related to smoking and such, it may be worthwhile to browse elsewhere.
A few years ago, cigarette and tobacco ads were banned in most countries. Because it was law, most tobacco companies resigned to the law and stopped advertising; stopped sponsoring events, and eventually were denied any space in the public eye. It is probably, today, the only legal product available for sale that isn’t allowed to advertise.
It just doesn’t seem fair to me (now that the tobacco isn’t advertised in any form) that there is a plethora of anti-smoking ads all over the place. It isn’t a level playing ground – if you are willing to look at it in that sense; if you are. The effects of smoking have no bearing on this. Anti-smoking ads are just an example. Just. An observation on what seems a one-sided presentation.
I will tie your hands, gag you, and then beat you up.
