Congress on Light Cigarettes

I sent this to Senator Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey after watching his hearing on C-span. It was just him and "Bridge to Nowhere" Sen. Stevens of Alaska conducting the hearing. They are trying to regulate tobacco through the FDA, whose Reps said they didn't have enough information.

First, an appropriate quotation:

Regarding your hearing on the effects of light cigarettes on smokers, it is obvious that tar intake will increase with more smoking. The whole hearing was redundant.

Smoking in general, was discussed with a good knowledge of junk science with no opposition.

I've been a heavy smoker since I was 10 years of age. At 71, along with millions of others, I have no health problems associated with smoking. I now am forced to roll my own, because of the price. A quarter of Americans smoke. Most have been brainwashed, like you, about smoking. Please don't allow this anti-smoking propoganda to undermine our great democracy. The truth will come out in time but meanwhile, health nuts are doing their best to destroy America for purposes of money and power.

The Response:

Thank you for contacting me. Due to the volume of e-mails, I can only respond to constituents with New Jersey mailing addresses. If you need further assistance, please contact the Senator from your home state.
Thank you
