This guy would be in prison.
He's the poster boy for the state's new anti-smoking campaign. But 48-year-old Skip Legault is still smoking _ despite an amputated leg, two heart attacks and a stroke. The state Department of Health confirmed Friday that they chose a smoker for the ads, saying it helps underscore the risks associated with nicotine addiction.
In the ad, Legault, looking into the camera and supporting himself on crutches, recites a litany of health woes, including a first heart attack at age 28 and another at 29, then says: "Every bit of this is from smoking."
But they’re not so he isn’t, but people with similar unconquerable addictions are. This guy picked the right drug. Going to kill him, but the right drug. How is any of this sensible and fair?
