That's the problem though, Lily. Overkill.
People are being fired from their jobs for smoking in their cars on their own time.
Students can't even smoke anywhere on some entire college campuses or anyone in a hospital zone outside no matter how far away they are from anyone else.
Once you open Pandora's box, it's almost impossible to shut it again.
But thanks for the good post. You got it right. It's the overkill that's causing the hysteria. That's the whole problem.
Look this has been enforced in Europe and most advanced countries now for decades. No one can smoke within 15 meters of a doorway to any building. Not even in open air sports arenas, nor any resturant , nightclub or any enclosed area. I think in Australia now if anyone is caught smoking in the car with children its an $250 on the spot fine. Some companies actually deduct money from employees who duck outside the building for so called smoke breaks. So in otherwords if you smoke you are treated like a leper which is how it should be.

Well reap it in, who makes the profit from that ? American & Western tobacco companies and at the same time are killing off potential enemies as well as the competition while making money. Right up the Republican's alley.

The other thing that is enforced as well is no cigarettes cannot be displayed anywhere in a retail outlet. They must be covered at all times in a draw or cupboard. In some countries no packets can be branded and must display pictures of rotten teeth & diseased lungs etc. All trying to stop the younger ones taking it up

I guess it depends on where they are sold__different strokes for different strokes kinda like.

Marlboro Reds are the best selling smoke in thirty countries, Newports also popular abroad but those products are likely made differently than those sold in the US___same with Coke, Pepsi and other soda, same with other products__Cadillacs for instance and Buicks made in China are not the same products built in the USA but a stripped down version that couldn't be sold here.

What appears to be universal in quality is Tyson's frozen meat products which are exported in astronomical volumes.

CORRECT, the crappy ones are sold HERE (fda regulations) NOT overseas.

Nuff to make me want to re-enlist for some overseas duty just to get a decent smoke!

Oh well, Pot is better for you anyway.
