Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

<quoted text>Alcohol and narcotics are already regulated. As a smoker, I understand that others have just as much right not to inhale secondhand smoke, as I do to inhale the 'first-hand' kind.
High taxes on cigarettes do suck, however...
Pay to play.

Most of the smoke coming from a cigarette is from the burning end and, therefore, is not filtered. The rest of us close to a smoker are getting the worst of the toxins while they strike a pose or leave the crap burning in an ashtray.

Women smokers are the worst when it comes to smoking etiquette because they never ask, "Do you mind if I light up?", like some men do. They think everybody else will be polite and let THEIR rudeness go unremarked on.

Use to work 7 on, 14 off; 7p-7a in the ER. Loved it. Felt like working with family - knew who you could count on, who had your back....

You won't get arrested for doing so
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.

<quoted text>And your point is??? The smoking bans began at local government levels and state governments quickly stepped up the bans. The Florida Restaurant Association fought tooth and nail against designated smoking areas but agreed with the smoking bans__figure that out.
Carol__it's the health insurance companies that are behind the anti tobacco laws as well as the policies that require drug screening for new hires and random drug testing. The insurance companies after all are the ones who get stuck with the financial results of reckless habits and activities.
You've been speaking to lung disease and cancer__smoking causes myriad health problems aside from those, heart and artery disease,
skin disorders, the shrinkage of gums which causes dental and then digestive problems. The list of smoking related diseases and disorders is enormous.
I'm curious about why anyone would put up a pro-tobacco argument.
Homosexual anal intercourse is far more deadly than smoking. Does that mean it should be banned?

Are you pro-choice, or only in favor of certain choices?

It's a second hand smoke argument. It's overrated to the point of hysteria.
Do you know the adverse effects on the body from drugs and alcohol? And the consequences of both on families and loved ones? Or crime and unnecessary deaths associated with both?
Smoking is harmful. But public hysteria about second hand smoke doesn't change one's choice to smoke and harming their own bodies.
You call wanting to live longer AND wanting it to be "quality" living *hysteria*?!!!

Wow.

Standing next to a campfire is just as "toxic" as standing next to a cigarette smoker. Ever voluntarily stand by a camp fire?

Have all the pit bulls you want, but go stand 25 feet away from a door way to smoke. Buy a car that goes 150 MPH but no smoking in here. Drive your car to a bar and stay all night, but get that cigarette away from me.

Or a wood-burning fireplace, or a charcoal barbecue.
