I don’t smoke cigs, or as a friend likes to call them “coffin nails” but even as a non-smoker banning the ability to sell them is just ridiculous. The argument is people might think they aren’t bad for you because they are being sold in a pharmacy. If that is the case, the person is so dumb they have more problems things to worry about than just being a smoker.
I am completely against legislating morality / behavior if it isn’t affecting other people. Second hand smoking and drunken driving laws I get because that can affect somebody else. Fundamentally that is why I am against legislation targeting gay’s, trying to impose Christianity on Middle East countries, banning drugs and ‘dangerous’ activities like cliff jumping.
