I haven't smoked a cigarette in well over a year, but I'm seriously considering buying a carton or two of menthols. I wonder how much a pack will be worth after the ban goes into effect.

I haven't smoked since 2009 and I was shocked when I found out - just a general question - that a pack of smokes costs almost $5 here now.  Buggedout

In the US? Yes. They're heavily taxed to discourage new users and offset the costs of treatment. The cost was a small factor in me quitting.

Ban?

Yes, the FDA banned flavored cigarettes a couple of years ago but made an exception for menthol, and now they plan to ban menthols... probably within a year. Regulatory commenting period just ended so I'd expect a firm announcement soon.

Didn't know that. I wonder if that'll apply to all the flavored vapes out there?

Our government is considering slowly raising the age where smoking is allowed, I guess until all current smokers are dead.

Only menthol and "tobacco" flavors have been legal for a long time, and most legit vape liquid companies already left the business. I haven't heard anything about a menthol vape ban. Doesn't matter much to me, I've been making my own liquid.

It wouldn't be a terrible plan to ban it and grandfather current smokers. Obviously cigarettes would never be approved if they were brought to market today. They're super-addictive drugs that give you cancer and don't even get you high.

I quit after Prometheus came out, & I read some actress couldn't do a running scene because she smoked.,...

Didn't help me all that much... My radio voice got pretty lousy, & I didn't have anything to turn to whenever I would run out of my more addictive anxiety meds....

Funny story....
Met a guy on a temp job who told the story about his 95 year old grandfather asking if he should quit...
The doctor said, "at your age, the fits will kill you".....

Anybody ever try Indonesian Clove cigarettes?

I was just watching a video about the lost episode of Sesame Street featuring  Margaret Hamilton as The Wicked Witch of the West, when it hit me; The Witch is green, The Emerald City is green, and The Wizard's big giant head is also green.....

I am guessing that is the long-term plan. Hopefully, if they go down that path, successive administrations will continue the policy.

Had to look up "jugging." I don't know about hare, but rabbit tastes just fine.

Gets to be a bit messy when you are figuring out how to do it the first time.

Urgh. When you get the time to sit down and watch a slow-burn horror that you've been wanting to watch for a while and it turns out that what you really want tonight is just something fast and mindless.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
