I'm sure that I read somewhere that non-smokers get to inhale a fifth of the smoke from a cigarette. This is great news for smokers on a tight budget!
Here's the plan:
1 A group of 100 smokers club together to buy a pack of 20 then go to a large room.
2. five of them light up at once
people are smoking a cigarette at a twentieth of the cost (and, as a bonus, 5 of them are smoking 2 at once)

||Would a fifth of the smoke equate to a fifth of the desirable part of the smoke? Your Uncle Nutsy has never gotten a contact buzz from tobacco the way he's gotten contact highs at Dead shows.
||(In fact, a friend of mine who was trying to cut his cigarette budget tried to deliberately inhale secondhand smoke. He said he found it unsatisfying and strangely irritating, much as nonsmokers do.)
||Even more cancer for the masses! Woohoo!
Just don't do this anywhere near *my* insurance plan.
||Great suggestion, but you need teeth to prove it.
Devise a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test to do so, specifically to detect instances of the tobacco mosaic viral genome in the gene pool. Balance that trial with a strong math link to the dispersal pattern worldwide, then (back away from the gene pool, since that is a 'cheap date') go for the $ payout from insurers in the west. Good luck.
