Someone said :
What more can the government do for them? Jack it up to â‚¬20, it's called tough love
That sort of 'tough love' leads to suicides, child neglect, homelesness, crime etc etc.
You cant simply price an addict out of an addiction, its a stupid and dangerous idea.
There are addicts of all sorts of drugs out committing crimes every day to help feed their habbit, that is what you will get from this sort of 'tough love'
What can the government do for them?
Well they can accept they are adults and choose to smoke and not put up the prices for starters. There is no need to raise the prices, none at all.
How about they offer more help for people who want to quit, instead of trying to force them to quit by pricing them out of it.
How about they have more education in schools on the dangers of smoking and addiction.
