It’s hard to believe this but, “it’s OK, they’re organic”, comes from a conversation I actually overheard between two women at the outdoor Farmers’ Market.

This comic is one I’ve been back and forth on for a long time. I’m pretty sure it’s going to ruffle some feathers, but a good friend of mine’s father passed away last week, after a terrible battle with cancer and it’s been at the front of my mind. Partly out of a desire to pay my respects and partly because, according to the lung association: “tobacco is the only product in the world that kills half of the people who use it exactly as directed”. That sad statistic is as painful as it is unnecessary.
