Reader's view: Cigarettes aren't a problem, they're a windfall

I am fed up with all the complaining that cigarettes are a problem. What about all the tax money from cigarette sales and the things that money pays for? It is even helping to pay for the new Minnesota Vikings football stadium so that a bunch of men can go out and kill themselves over a ball plus get paid millions of dollars.

I have been smoking for 46 years. I wish I could get back all the money I paid.

Plus, I can breathe just fine.
