Tobacco, a Powerful Deadly Force

What if our corporations weren't so powerful, and did not exert so much influence towards our laws and our society? Would that mean we would have an easy way to save more lives?

While we spend so much money on many programs to save lives, what about the most obvious one? How about standing up to the tobacco lobby and stop their ability to kill?

Tobacco use is killing more people in the US today that substance abuse, firearms, and traffic accidents. Is it time yet to hold the tobacco industry accountable, or will they remain part of our corporate structure whose actions towards people are fine as long as the profits are up.
