That measure is so wrong on so many counts, not the least of which is the pursuit of my happiness, but i guess more non smokers voted for the folks that raise cig taxes for their pet projects, because oregon health plan wont see it, it will line some pockets administratively in salaries and awards. If your not prepared to stand up for free will, there will come a day when your favorite things will be equally banned, beginning with alcohol of any kind, than perfumes and than round it out with sweat shop made clothing over american made, now you can complain to the hills that those things arent fair, but in all fairness who're you to say about my cigs?? another thing is simply this, without the tobacco crop this country wouldnt be this country !! put that in your pipe and smoke it
