    Well with tobacco it's reasonable because when you smoke you don't only affect yourself like everything else he's banned but everyone around you.

    No, because you can smoke in designated smoking areas. They have those at businesses.

    Here the only loophole is Indian reserves where they are really cheap.

    Those still affect other people, have you ever had to walk past a designated smoking area? Unless it's an airtight locked room (which would kill them) it still affects other people.

    Typical Progressive that feels he can think for others. Myself I am tired of him interfering in other States Elections. Just to get one of his stooges in. I don't see how NYorkers voted him in for a 3rd term. Now they are wishing they hadn't.

    But you can bet he wouldn't want to lose the money that the State of NY takes in with Cigarettes.

    He's a big government Democrat.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    I seriously don't think you inhaling cigarette smoke for 2 seconds is going to affect anyone in a serious manner.

    No but its it's horribly unpleasant. It is also in society's best interest to reduce the rate of smoking. All the other products do not necessarily cause harm if you moderate consumption while there is no such thing with cigarettes.

    So you admit that people smoking doesn't do anything harmful to anyone (besides the smoker of course)?

    EDIT: You say that there is no such thing as "moderate consumption" with cigs. That is quite untrue as my mother smokes cigs every once in a while and isn't addicted. I just recently smoked two cigs and before that I hadn't touched any in over a year.

    I was referring to just walking by a designated smoking area it doesn't case any harm to you but is incredibly unpleasant and just being around a smoker in general is unpleasant. Addiction to cigarettes is extremely easy you might not be now but it doesn't take much to become addicted, not to mention it's still extremely for you and anyone exposed to second hand smoke. The main point I'm trying to hit here is that its ****ing disgusting and harmful to not only your health but to those affected by second hand smoke.
