    Smokers Flee From ISIS – Terrorist Organization Beheads Cigarette Users

    Posted: February 15, 2015

    According to an article by International Business Times, ISIS has imposed a strict ban on alcohol, cursing, and other acts considered to be deemed sinful, which they call “haram.” However, the one sin that seems to be most offensive to ISIS is smoking. This seems to be enforced by a disgusting display of a severed head found with a cigarette in his mouth...

    ISIS has burned millions of cigarette packs in Iraq and Syria in accordance to the smoking ban. ISIS even seized marijuana fields and posted videos of them dousing the plants in gasoline and setting them ablaze. As for punishments, the minimum penalty is forty lashes with a whip. Repeated offenses can be as severe as prison time or execution.
