Apparently, the stress of the Pandemic has helped out big tobacco.
A survey of 2,000 British adults last fall that more than half of cigarette users were stress smoking more than before the pandemic. Some 10 percent started smoking again after giving up. Overall, 30 percent of the smokers surveyed reported lighting up more regularly since the outbreak.

Yep, an ad guy named Julian Koenig came up with Earth Day. Then I thought, hmmm, that name seems familiar… Julian Koenig wrote the tagline for the VW Bug - “think small” which was voted the most successful ad of the 20th century by Ad Age Magazine. Crazy!
In honor of 420, Kicstick would like to acknowledge that licorice root is also 100% natural, and history shows that it’s been in use as long as Cannabis.
We know licorice has been used for thousands of years in ancient China, Egypt and Greece and has been documented for 3,000 years. Ancient Egyptians created a drink from it. Licorice root was also found in the tomb of King Tut (1356 to 1339 B.C.E.)
