Nicotine Is Good For Your Brain

Yup, it increases cognitive abilities and delays the onset of Alzheimers syndrome. The medical establishment keeps harping on the fact that it causes heart attacks and lung cancer while clinical researchers are discovering all the good things it does. The choice comes down to having a healthy body while turning into a babbling idiot or retaining your thinking abilities as your body falls apart. Thrillng, huh?

Of course the government uses all of this as an excuse to tax the hell out of cigarettes. "It's to pay for the extra health care costs" they tell us. If it was really that much of a killer they'd encourage smoking! Less Social Security costs that way.

Well, I just roll my own! Somebody in government must have come up with the concept of a lower to middle income tax break. Bulk tobacco is taxed at a much lower rate than ready rolled cigarettes. I just love tax breaks, don't you?

It gives me something to do in the morning before I wake up enough to read the Herald. That and drinking coffee, another thing that increases cognitive abilities. No wonder I'm so damned smart!
