opium

Why is smoking opium less harmful to humans than the heroin which is made from it?

Stuff is added during the fabrication process to turn opium into heroin. That stuff is also dangerous and harmful.
I wouldn't advise you smoke opium either though...

well...there are two options:
1-start smoking
2-put up with it
i don't know from where i learnt this one but it seems quite right to use it here ''nature let's weaker ones to perish and stronger ones to cherish'' so i guess the only choice we have is PERISHing :cry:

I'm trying to make my bf stop smoking but he behaves like a child. He lights a cigarette as soon as I go to the toilet. :lol: And I really hate to come, see the cigarette, look at him and say nothing. But the good point is that when I look at him he looks like this: :oops:

Banning tobacco would be a great thing... But then you would get a lot of people suing the state for civil rights

Those stupid enough to smoke will remove themselves from the gene pool and be subject to natural selection- so it's ok :twisted:

Main problem I have is second-hand smoke of course, but hey if you chew your "chaw" it doesn't really bother me.

Btw if you ban tobaccy, other taxes will have to rise astronomically. Kinda ironic that tobaccy companies have to pay for anti-tobacco programs.
