Teen allowed 'calming' smokes

A Year 10 student has been given permission to take cigarette breaks while at school because her doctor says she is clinically addicted to nicotine.
Tara Lewis, 16, who smokes as much as a packet a day, is allowed to smoke between classes to relieve the "stress" of her Year 10 studies.
Stromlo High School has granted the amazing concession to the Canberra teenager despite the ACT Government boasting of its plans to tighten laws to stop underage smoking.
It is also illegal to supply cigarettes to anybody under the age of 18.

this reminds me of the time i tried to get medicinal marijuana to help me pass my math test. what kind of doctor prescribes smaoking to a teen. i wonder if this doctor has a bone through his nose.
