I believe it should be up to the individual to decide. I also agree that it is simply about revenue. On a side note this is one reason I object to socialized healthcare ( one of many reasons), because the government will identify habits or activities that they deem "unhealthy or dangerous" and legislate it out of existance so that the government does not have to pay for it. This is happening with smoking right now except it is done by taxation. The justifications I always here are "why should we have to pay to take care of someone when they are old because they chose to smoke?" I agree that smoking is nasty and unhealthy but why does the government get to decide how much it should cost a person?
