    What blows me away, is that the same people who want to ban flavored cigs are the same people that want to legalize dope.

    I suspect it has something to do with the HNIC. they do seem predisposed to menthols, in my experience :shrugs:

    FWIW, I'm sick of having obese smokers who spend their days eating fried chicken and watching soaps tell me that the rest of society should be paying for their healthcare.

    I think a significant hike in cigarette taxes is preferable to an outright banning, but I don't think this is particularly outrageous.

    I don't know why those two are logically inconsistent.

    Not everyone who wants to legalize dope supports this. I hate bans or illegalities on any substance, I think this is just as dumb a pot prohibition. I don't smoke tobacco, and while I will say I enjoy going to a facility that is smoke free (don't leave smelling like an ash tray) I think it's absurd for the government to tell businesses that people can't smoke in their establishments. I think the government has done there jobs in preventative measures such as DARE programs, television ads and labels on the box. There is no doubt that the message is pretty clear that they are bad for you. Beyond providing credible information though the government is completely overstepping their bounds.

    Explain how dope is more unhealthy than cigarettes? Do I really have to go into all that?
