The cigarette companies have carried on like criminals forever. They tweak the ingredients to make it more addictive, they tweak the ads and promotions to hook kids, they start losing customers here so they sell stuff that is more lethal and more addictive, to developing countries, they avoid taxes by sneaking product across the border using aboriginal land that lies along the US border, they lie about the way they work in unison like organized crime, there is just no end of it. But boo hoo for them? Wow. I have no idea how these fuckers sleep at night. They should happily fork over 100 billion to try to make ammends.
