The smoking didnt kill her, did it?
Saying that smoking is hazardous to your health when someone died from causes unrelated to smoking is silly. She was killed by falling from a 17th floor balcony. There's no reason to be outraged by the cigarettes, but rather the outrage should be focused at her building management. Seriously.
Nice change of subject from what was said in #43 and my response to it.
I'll bet you anything that for statistical purposes this will be ruled as a "tobacco related death." A few years ago in Louisiana there was a group pushing for some major restrictions/bans on where you could smoke. I looked at some of their literature, and my eye was caught by a graph showing the ages of "tobacco related deaths." It seemed strange to me that any kids under 18 would have used tobacco long enough to kill them, and yet the graph made it looked like a handful of them had one year. I did a little research on my own, and found that the minors had died in house fires that were suspected of having been started by a lit cigarette.
They were listed as, "tobacco related deaths."
