If you did organise around it and it became a popular cause at your school smoking would become seen as cool and a statement against authority when in fact it is anti-social and serves to enrich tobacco barons and destroy the health of workers and waste their money on pointless shit.
And all of the things that non smokers spend their money on instead of tabacco doesnt enrich the capitalist class? where does your electricity petrol electronics and everything else come from? your food? Your advocating drop out/self sufficiency lifestyle politics not libcommunism.
Woah there, I might smell like a hippy but don't read too much into that comment. I'm not saying 'boycott tobacco and grow your own tofu'. I'm a smoker, I don't know how to grow tofu. Obviously under capitalism lots of stuff makes the bastards rich.
I still say don't promote smoking by making it the cause which is associated with radical politics at your school. I don't want to (and I hope I didn't) make any point in favour of lifestyle politics but some things we buy are genuinely useful and others are addictive health destroying substances that do nothing but make someone else rich at your expense. I see the logic of the arguments to the contrary but I still don't think organising around the right to smoke in schools is the best course of action for a fellow comrade who is eager to make the most of their organising energies. I got addicted to smoking at school, I regret that.
