I had just left philosophy class and I was thinking along the lines of good karma and bad karma that I hear people make constant reference to, I was wondering...

If someone asks to bum a smoke off of me, and I give it to him, am I garnering good or bad karma? Because, I'm giving someone something that they want, but I'm also contributing to their having a higher chance of getting lung cancer later in life.

Anyone wanna take a stab at this?

Side Note: I was aware that the word karma itself meant action. Because I'd just learned that in class, but in the sense that the word is commonly used, its bastardized American version, I was wondering what the merit of that act would be.

Thanks Girlface. I feel one step closer to enlightenment.
