Very few making these law's are getting some rub down from anti smoking or drug companies to start with.
it's total bs.
It will lead to the FDA controlling how much sugar you can buy and put in drink's and snack cake's.
and even stuff i can;t imagine.

There just way to stupid with there clean lung's to figure that out yet..
those fat non smoker's... will get taxed to death for there deep fried chicken
those McDonald burger's.
By allowing them to do this opens a flood gate on what they can call AKA bad for you and in turn make more money of it.
I can't wait till the OMG!!!!!!!!!!! they raised my junk food up 2 dollars a bag for chip's...
I am going to cuss them like there aint no tomorrow.
