  1. Your article made me think about all of those companies which are willing to sell their cigarettes in USA. Those types of companies are not well welcomed in USA. Nowadays, 80% of the population in USA does not smoke. Americans always try to stay healthy even there are so many American laws that protect the non smoker for example you are not allowed to smoke at work, you need to go outside in a special smoking area just designed for smokers and this area has to be in a distance from your working area. The employers are charged fees if they allow a smoker, to smoke wherever they want. You can not smoke in a restaurant unless the restaurant has a special sign to allow you. You can not smoke in your hotel room unless you check in a smoker room. There are even more and more hotels which do not provide accommodations for smokers. Smokers are really "outsiders" in America, since the law is pushing them in the corner. Thanks for the great article, Regards Terrans
