If they are going to allow cigarettes, which are linked to more deaths than marijuana and several other street drugs, then they shouldn't tax them so heavily. It's basically a right to smoke cigarettes, but they are simply picking on smokers, it's crap.
Same with cities that make smoking indoors illegal. I'm with the South Park guys on this, they basically said, "If I own a bar, I should have every right to allow people to smoke in my bar."
This is America, Land of the Free, but it's quickly becoming, Land of the Free, well, kinda. I can see our new slogan in 2 years, "Hey, at least we're not China." 5 years, "Hey, at least we're not China, yet..." 10 years, "Hey, we're the Western China."
