Iwouldnt mind betting that the revenue derived from tobbaco would more than pay for a few warships and some new aircraft. in the eyes of the pollies its better to die from an enemies bullet, than the possibility of cancer
Raymond...in case you missed it...Smoking is the single largest preventable cause of death and disease in Australia killing 50 Australians daily, 350 each week, and around 19,000 every year.
Smoking causes 20% of all cancers, 21% of all heart disease and costs $12.7 billion a year in health care, lost productivity and other costs. So you’re right, if you didn’t smoke, every Australian could indeed have his own personal aircraft!
