Was this an assault tobacco? Still legal in NY, but the tax on non-reservation cigs is pretty high. Glad I don't smoke, I think it is smelly and unhealthy, but if someone really wants to, maybe they should have the freedom to do so. How far do we go? Ban butter, eggs, bacon, large soda, any soda, salt, cookies, candy bars, gum? Some of those things may be unhealthy, especially in large amounts. Some of those things you don't "need". But this is America. We have freedom to have things like that, right? Do we need a big brother nanny state to tell us how to live our daily lives?(P.S. don't smoke, it is neither sexy nor cool and it will kill you and diminish your quality of shortened life and costs too much, just sayin')

If you smoke after sex then you're doing it too fast.

Yes, they will be different. You're confused.
People don't smoke a pack a day of marijuana. Marijuana is not nearly as chemically or psychologically addictive as nicotine.
This entire matter is so simple, so obvious on the face, so backed by data...and then we get unmoored people ruminating our of their blowholes just ignoring what is know perfectly well.
Marijuana is far, far less odious than alcohol and tobacco use by any metric. There's no complex mystery, nothing for idiot tee baggrz to muddy the waters with.
Maybe so.....but it doesn't do a lot for your nasal passages. Peace man!
