And even more lets not forget. Portions on taxes on cingular which will raise bout $2 soon will help fund government. Which pretty much means it will NEVER be illegal the way this debt is going. And even more peoples keep saying stuff like the the rate of smokers has dropped significantly in the past 10 years and blah blah. Where do these stats come from??? And sadly, does this include underagers starting NOW? Is there some kind of government survey census that asks are you a smoker? I've never seen it. I think those stats are imaginary if you ask me.

Good idea.

At least they won't have to worry about cleaning up the beach.

I agree. If you're a smoker keep your car window shut. If it's so great why do you have your window open when its 0 degrees?
Someone I know quit smoking late last year. About 2 weeks after she quit she was in a restaurant and complained to her husband about the horrible smell (they were in the non-smoking section). He laughed and said "that's cigarette smoke". She had no idea how obnoxious it was until she quit.
She realized it, she just didn't give a shit.
