    I suspect that banning alcohol, is also on his EO agenda.
    Along with tobacco, plastic bottles, sodas larger than 16 oz., Big Macs, etc. After all, look how effective it has been to ban heroin and meth.

    1000's of lives ARE being saved by not smoking cigarettes. Smoking is at an all time low, partly because of Govt. action. It seems really heartless that you don't care, and I suspect that is your feeling about reducing gun violence too. You don't care.

    That is most likely the core of the problem...

    Yeah, because there is nothing wrong with taxing people to the point where they are forced to quit. Nothing at all. Oh and great job ignoring the black market it created.
