Congratulations pot smokers...

"Beginning with the first report in 1964, smoking has been the single most important issue for all the Surgeons General of the past five decades. The reports of the Surgeon General on tobacco have alerted the nation to the health risk of smoking and have transformed the issue from one of individual and consumer choice to one of epidemiology, public health, and risk for smokers and non-smokers alike."

Probably something to do with deficit. It seems that it does matter.

And who was that idiot that said it didn't? Though I must admit, he did help Obama win 2 elections.

No one gets arrested for smoking cigarettes. But try and light up in a nonsmoking zone - which is almost everywhere - and see what happens.
People do get fired for smoking in their own car on their own time. Some companies now won't even hire people who admit to smoking. And smokers are labeled social misfits thanks to the politically correct hysteria.
Just doesn't seem fair. Or right. Especially in light of all the other crap that's going on that's deemed acceptable or at least tolerated.
Designated smoking areas should be everywhere for people who happen to like smoking. It's their right to do so.
I agree, what one does in his own time, car, home etc should not be grounds for firing.

Mitt was Mexican; Bush AG was Mexican wasn't he ? Or perhaps Guatamalen, anyway, we are All Americans!

Jeb Bush wife is Mexican, Rubio is Cuban, so? We are all Americans! It is ignorance like yours that caused you, in part, to lose the election.

You are sadly mistaken. When I was in college the teachers/Professors smoked in the classrooms and at the lecterns. Students were also allowed to smoke in the classrooms. Lol,,,and it wasn't 45 years ago.

This exemplifies the whole federal system. When services are not only freely offered but actively given, people are going to sign up without the least hesitation. Then, the government construes these elevated numbers to manipulate public opinion. Our government is now running radio and TV adds in Mexico, informing prospective 'immigrants' how to take advantage of all the services we offer. What kind of sh!t is that? I think 49% of us know what it is, but 51% are already signed up.

You now own it and you can't blame Bush.

The next terrorist attack you own it.

Can't get a job after graduation, you own it.

A nuclear Iran, you own it.

Bowing to Russia, you own it.

Another severe recession, you own it.

A volatile border with Mexico, you own it.

Trouble getting good health care, you own it.

Higher health insurance costs and health care costs, you own it.

No budget, you own it.

Our allies mistrust, you own it.

Another trillion of debt, you own it.

More Benghazi situations, you own it.

No one willing to join the military, you own it.

Trouble getting a loan to buy a home, you own it.

More dependency on food stamps, you
own it.

Trouble finding good employment, you own it.

Several part time jobs instead of a good job, you own it.

A World Government, you own it.

In a way, I am relieved that another good man will not be blamed when it was impossible to clean up this mess you voted for.

Have a good day.

I can't wait to see how you react to the national legalization of marijuana.
Actually, I was going to say marijuana will eventually be legalized in all 50 states and you can bet people will be puffing away anytime and anywhere.

Even though it distorts perception and affects one's ability to think clearly, those of us who don't like the smell of marijuana will just have to tolerate it - and those stoned on it.

Wait and see.

Wasn't that the main criticism of the far left? That Obama didn't spend enough his first term?

Now they have four more years to make up for that discrepency.
