  •  free samples (none)
    The ttobacco companies have
    a history of giving away free
    samples of their addictive product
    in the less developed countries.

    I witnessed pretty girls giving away
    cartons in Brazil. CARTONS!

    The free samples came without
    a warning saying that studies
    show on average three cigarettes
    is enough to get you hooked.

    No one needs to force anyone
    to smoke when three freebies
    will create an addiction.

    They are still pushing it. I saw their
    marketing again this year in Ghana,
    where smoking has dramatically
    increased since I first visited
    in 2003.

    Tobacco companies are drug
    pushers. They are still marketing
    death to the Third World.
