They must have future bills in mind because their is a lot of things that I can think of along the same line that would seem quite enticing to younger teens to young adults. For instance I can see in the very near future flavored chewing tobacco like peach, vanilla, berry, cherry, citrus, apple and all other flavored blends.
“Now for chewing tobacco is something like when you see a green apple can of dip, you would think like “hmm green apple like the jolly rancher I think I could give it a try,” well in my own experience I found that it tastes just like a jolly rancher can hardly tell it’s dip (unless you swallow some). My point is that they are definitely are not stopping their. I agree alcohol (i.e. SMIRNOFF and all of their fruity beverages) will be next too.
“I see you guys talking about purchasing things internationally, but that will pry be taken away soon too now because The MAN with the plan you know what’s his name has control of their internet too now. Yes, I say control with no asterisk or a pair of parenthesis explaining that because when they wrote the bill they must have forgot to do the same when they said “emergency control.” Oh and Catherine Harris, you are the reason why I am registered as independent, I mean not to be too rough on you because I can’t tell if you are either extremely misinformed or just that dense to where you get all your so called *facts [bullshit] from a site called blametherightwingforeverything.com because I believe that President Obama signed the bill. Anyways I’m rambling don’t mean to turn this into a little flame thread.
“I have nothing to worry about though I smoke Newport Cigarettes and dip Grizzly Straight, but I think it was ridiculous to pass or even get this bill up to that point. I have a good friend who has smoked Djarum Specials for the longest now.”

“I think this is an immature, knee-jerk government reaction to “do something about…something” and show us that they mean business!
“I feel bad for the Indonesian’s. Hopefully this doesn’t piss them off enough that we go to war with them next…
“Nothing we can do now except savor what we have left… Those of you loyal to the clove…perhaps we run into each other in Indonesia, hang out and smoke a bit.
“PS Little strange that you can still buy smokes called “cigars” that are flavored…. for now. I smoke to you friends. But, i’ll have to butt it out soon to save some for tomorrow”

I live in Florida and they are 6.50 a pack. This is crazy. Why don’t we focus more on regular cigarettes. They are all over the US but no we focus on cigarettes that are already hard to find as it is.You don’t see ad’s in magazines or tv for cloves.
The bigger picture is focusing on American made cigarettes. Ban them! Alcohol probably takes more lives. Focus on the diferent vodkas they have to offer than cigarettes!(cherry,grape,apple, and etc!! They appeal more to children.”
