The Impact of Tobacco Cultivation

Like I've said many times before, nothing good EVER comes from a nicotine addiction.

Not only does using tobacco or smoking cigarettes hurt yourself and others around you, but there are many often underreported health consequences a nicotine addiction causes.

Thanks Big Tobacco

When we talk about Big Tobacco, or any other corporate entity, it extremely important to keep in mind that people, like you, your friends and neighbors, are the driving force behind any corporate veil. Those corporations cannot function without the help and support of people just like you and me.

So, I can't help but wonder why people will still continue to work for a corporation when it's a known fact that their products are killing us? I wonder how someone can face their friends and neighbors when they know that what they're doing is enabling their addiction, ruining their health, and hastening their deaths?

Think about it. If you work for the tobacco industry, have you ever considered that your job could be endangering your soul? Is your job really that important?

Born Free From Nicotine

You know me. I throw this shit in your face when I see you, cause I got something to say.

If you were born free from nicotine, why become a slave to it and enrich the corporate powers that want you to become addicted? Yes, you do want to live for tomorrow.

Enjoy a long and healthy life without cigarettes. Spit that shit out and remain free to be the beautiful, creative, independent, and happy young person that you were meant to be.
