Marlboro Smooths

I went to Indiana yesterday to get 2 ML menthol cartons, and one Newport 100 carton. And I bought a pack of both sizes of Marlboro Smooths.

Everyone is right. Marlboro Smooths smell and taste like peppermint. They taste like a candy cane to me. Smooths even make Newports taste like a non-menthol cig.

Well, Newports do taste more like a non-menthol with a touch of mint flavoring. But this candy-cone flavoring in the Smooths is a lot different than the average taste of a menthol (ML menthols included).

The inside of my mouth feels like I sucked a peppermint-flavored breath mint afta smoking a Smooth. I like that peppermint feeling in my mouth.

I normally hate peppermint. But the peppermint/candy cane-like taste in these Smooths is cool.

Next time I go to Indiana, I gotta see if Smooths are available in cartons. This brand is a lil stronger than ML menthols. Nowhere close to being as strong as a Newport.

I smoked the king-sized Smooths first.

Should smokers be shot?

(My comment from a blog post at Smoke Screens)

"Should smokers be shot?" Nope. It seems like we live in a time where lots of people don't seem to understand we all live once. And people who shoot/stab smokers to death are no exception. I don't even know how resorting to violence is gonna encourage smokers to quit. What it WILL do is encourage the serious smokers to give the "snipers" a taste of their own medicine.

I was right when I said we are approaching an era where smokers may have to literally defend themselves with a gun just to simply smoke outside. I do know the violence should be enough proof that smoking bans don't work.

No smoking bans = No more violence from antismokers

I can't see a sniper shooting/stabbing a smoker in an indoor place where smoking is permitted.
