Because those warning signs on cigarette cartons and tobacco cans have really curbed smoking/dipping... :rolleyes:
It's certainly not all due to the warning labels, but the rate of smokers in the US has dropped fairly dramatically since 1965. That year, almost half of Americans smoked (42% according to the CDC) & the rate in 2018 was 14%.

At first glance, it would appear people are getting smarter.

Then you see some shit like this.

As if this first tweet isn't laughable enough, then comes the second.

As if denigrating and belittling an entire group of people is the high road? Conservatives are attacked verbally and physically and they are taking the high road????

I hope they stick it to their ass in the punitive portion of the proceedings, the place has to close their doors, and everyone involved in the sorry situation from the college winds up shoveling shit at the local horse stable for the remainder of their working lives. My apologies to decent horse shit shovelers the World over.

Second best solution, they stick it to their ass, but they stay open and this and other colleges wake the F' up and stop this shit and fire every employee that engages in this kind of crap.
