The fact is cigarette smokers seem to think cigarette butts are exempt from litter laws and are incapable of even making sure they are out before throwing them out the windows of their hoopties.

I object to the second hand smoke from the forest fires these arrogant thoughtless people cause.

That alone is cause for a ban in my book.....

It pains me to say it, but I agree. Research has shown long-term cellular damage to the brain from pot-smoking. Of course, in some cases it's hard to tell the difference.

18% of Americans still smoke.
Think of the Federal taxes they pay!
Probably float the ACA on that revenue alone.

I stopped mourning for the Laughing Liberal. The many brain dead Topix contributors we have today have helped me forget.

The nearest town has many, many, snowboarder types. I dislike stereotypes, but legal weed really isn't for everyone. But hey, they're kids, hopefully it's a phase and not a long-term lifestyle choice.

As an Ex-longhair, I can't believe the stuff available over the counter here.
