If Sam Hoyt is so concerned about saving lives, his first order of business should be to ban abortions. After all, at least one person dies in each and every abortion. Now, that would be saving lives.

Wonder how Sam Hoyt and the other politicians would feel if the sale of alcohol was banned in the state.

Since you do not take ANY medication because it is made by the evil pharmacies, I guess you are able to argue that point.

The things you mention are normally enjoyed in moderation, unlike cigarettes, which are not. Therefore, there is some rationale to banning cigarette sales in pharmacies. Of course, you can also campaign to have the other things removed. That is your right to do that. You will probably be unsuccessful just like the 100 pro smokers who showed up on the capital steps in Ohio a few months back to protest the smoking ban.

Actually, other than an occasional Advil, you are correct. I do not take any medication. Why does the protest bother you so much that you mention it often? I believe the SmokeFree rallies started with a whimper, not a bang. All movements do.

Bans, deceitful studies and propaganda:
'Root financing and planning by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation'.

Free Enterprise, Free Choice & Signs are a WONDERFUL Invention. What a novel idea!

Save Your Rights, Freedom and Businesses before the next ban on 'THE AGENDA' starts!

Ever notice ALL no smoke bans are the SAME?
Big bucks organized them and passes out BONUS CHECKS!
What have your politicians arranged for?

What & who is behind the bans, along with WHY.
