what next then?

I totally get it about second hand smoke, i honestly do. That said, obesity and drinking are just as bad. In fact, you could say that obesity is worse...so what? next ban eating in public? or regulate just what we can/can't eat? How about booze? how many people die every day cause some schmuck can't hold his liquor and gets behind the wheel of a car? If they're going to do this, about about mandatory interlocks on every car...you must breathe clean or your engine doesn't start....seems like a win/win, yet DUI's never go down and those that do drink and drive just get slaps on the hand and do it over and over and over.

The health problems of the obese cost all of us on our insurance, yet cures to obesity are nothing more than a get rich quick scheme. If it's that much of a problem, shouldn't there be free and accessible help? No, can't do that, cause various companies are making too much money off them.

I don't smoke, and I never will. But, it seems to be one hell of a slippery slope into us - in a generation or two - being nothing more than mindless drones, living how some self-appointed group tells us to live, doing only what they think is appropriate for us to do.
