    I can't speak for Ikari, but I think all drugs should be legal and sold for a profit.

    Personally I believe we need to make changes to our entire economy. But in this economy, yes it would be a logical decision to legalize drugs, and profit from there sale. People are aways going to do drugs, you might as well collect revenue from it. I was just speaking about hypocrisy of our society.

    I don't know a single smokers who's life is a cigarette or cigarette's? I know alcoholics and drug addicts who lost everything to those habits but don't know a single person who lost their job, car, house etc to smoking. Well that is if they did not fall asleep with a lit cigarette.

    Destructive? You want to talk about destructive? Have you seen crack baby's crying for a fix? Mothers prostituting themselves for crack? People starving because they would rather do heroin than eat? People loosing a home because of gambling? You don't know what destructive is.

    Cigarettes destructive because they contribute to bad health? Oh my god man, get over it.

    Dying of cancer or heart disease thirty years before your time is not destructive? Losing your house, car, etc is one thing, when you lose your life you lose it all. That's destructive.

    If someone wants drugs they're going to get drugs. It's simple, we can educate people on drugs negative effects, and we'll still have rehab clinics. But the amount of revenue that's supporting organized crime, should be supporting our economy.

    If one wants to smoke, fine. Just don't subject non-smokers to your cancer-causing poison...

    That would depend on the person, medical history, number of years smoked and if the smoking did actually contribute at all. For example: My grandfather died of colon cancer. Had nothing at all to do with his smoking. My father however died of lung cancer as did my aunt. Neither of them smoked at all.

    Smoking may or may not do anything to you at all. You are speculating at best. What I stated are tangible FACTS. Those things do destroy lives, period. Smoking may or may not depending on many factors.

    Now does smoking increase your risk? Yes. Is it guaranteed? No. That's why it is called a risk.
