Gee, you sound like you work for ATS.
I posed this question earlier. Where does the madness stop? Someone else suggested the government will be dictating what sexual positions we use.
I'm at my wit's end trying to figure out how to get these legislative wackos under control.

Yeah. I think Beeezer once got my thread banned and got me kicked off the site before....
One of the mods told me to clean his desk. I used too much Windex on the computer screen and it got fried.

I can only speak for myself, but i've smoked cigs before, one I decided one day to turn the tables, everything seemed to improve when i decided to go clean! never looked back!
But I agree, a fine cigar or some fine tobacco is nice on the occasion. So maybe we need to really focus on the laws properly. Make it perscrption, people who smoke a pack a day need to be regulated. So maybe enforce some sort of system that limits the amount of cigs released at a time? maybe force people to grow their own (so the companies dont fill it full of chemicals)
Honestly, i find all the people jumping up and down about cigs are usually the ones too scared to try quitting.
I mean, why would you want to continually pump your body full of toxic CRAP that does nothing but ruin your health and bring misery in the long run? People want to quit, its just that most are too scared!
There are compromises to be made if people didnt just jump on the cig haters are bad bandwagon. I have friends who smoke, they are dear and close friends, myself, my other friends and their family are always encouraging them to quit, they want to quit, but there's a reason cigerettes are addictive.. because the CEO's want to make money! or does this point get lost on people?
sorry mod! just making a point!

The easiest way to end smoking would be to say that starting next year, tobacco is illegal for someone turning 21.
All those who don't want to give up the habit and are over that age could continue to smoke. Al those younger would not be able to purchase tobacco legally.
The health benefits to society from eliminating smoking would be huge.
