    It's a choice...just like buying alcohol...smoking cigs. It drives me crazy seeing people at the store pay for food with food stamps..then turn around and buy cigs. If you can afford cigs u can afford to pay for your own food.

    wolfman is 100% right on. I get angry whenever I see this happening in the stores--pay for foood with food stamps, then lay down the cash for cigarettes. Pay for your own food and get off the public dole!!!!
