Money in tobacco From Malvern Gazette

Money in tobacco From Malvern Gazette.

Strong words from opposition Councillors in Worcestershire, as the majority Conservative party decided to maintain tobacco investments.  See my comment below the article, where I challenge the slippery slope arguments, that imply that if you exclude tobacco, then where so you stop – alcohol, fast food, cars etc.

Tobacco is the only consumer product that kills tens of thousands of people in the UK, when used exactly as intended by the manufacturers.  A lifelong smoker has a 50% chance of being killed by smoking, and of those 50% about half will die in middle age.  Tobacco is in a completely different class to other consumer products, which is why the only international public health treaty is all about tobacco.
