The company that sells Marlboro, Chesterfield and Parliament just officially announced it will strive for a smoke-free future. That’s as astounding as Donald Trump giving up getting rich, Rosie O’Donnell giving up excess eating or the Kardashians just giving up.
Of course, there’s a catch to the promised cigarette-free future. The big tobacco companies will get into hawking smokeless vaping, dripping and other ways that allegedly delay killer cancer’s arrival at throats and lungs for a couple of years. And even more obvious, the move is intended to continue the never-ending greed to make bucks on killer weeds. They’ll jump into the soon-to-be total legality of good, healthy marijuana.
