May we get real for a second?? Tobacco is not going to be deemed illegal. Just isn't going to happen. There are too many tax dollars attatched to it, for gov't to ban it totally.We all know what these are meant to do, protect children. I don't think anyone is against that. But these laws that are being brought in(Ontario is considering one) won't be enforcable. The police can't keep up with all the idiot punks with guns, where are they going to find the time to stop people they think are smoking. Stopping every car with someone holding a cigarette won't work because you can't always see the kids in the car. Until a politician can stand up and state a true solution to this problem, it is a total waste of time trying to enact these laws.
And, especially during an election campaign... it helps the canidates focus on smoking instead of the many REAL issues.
