Todays society is a dangerous and corrupt place. People would lie , cheat , and steal just to make a

dollar. People are even taking there parents to court these days . How ludicrous can a person get ? A

person would sue a tobacco company because they had developed cancer . This is outrageous ! For one

reason , how could a person just pick on one company in particular . Because of the fact that a person

could not smoke just one brand of cigarette . Now if that isn't money Hungry I don't know what is.

The consumer is at fault for buying and using the product

anyway. On the package of cigarettes it states that the surgeon general warns everyone of the harmful

effects that cigarette can cause. The case does state that the cigarette can cause cancer, emphysema, and

also lung cancer.

Even if the reader is illiterate it still shouldn't matter .The information on the boxes

gets around by word of mouth . Second of all , it's no one else's fault for them smoking . The smoker,

picks up the cigarette,light it up ,and puff. Also the cigarette doesn't just jump in your mouth . Anyone

who would try to sue a cigarette company should be put away , because they are most definitly insane.

I am a smoker , but I still can't understand why any person

would do that . It saddens me to know that people would sink so low just to get some money. The world

is getting worse everyday.Maybe someday we'll realize that with out each and every one of us working

together the earth wouldn't have any thing left.
