The FDA has approved a new, "nicotine lollipop" to help smokers quit. What is this for, 5 year-olds? Who loves ya, baby?
Heroin, one of the most addictive substances known, was first developed as a cure for Morphine addiction. Morphine had produced many addicts during it's widespread use as a pain reliever, especially during wartime. (Isn't that one way cigarette smoking spread, during WWII? Remember those Red Cross packages?)
So, now smokers can budget the money they used to set aside for cigarettes toward nicotine lollipops.
Do you get the feeling that tobacco companies have a controlling interest in drug companies? Hey, there's more than one way to skin a cat.
Am I being too negative? OK, what's the difference? One thing:
you can lick your nick inside, where smoking is not allowed. Cool, huh?
