anything that gives of harmful fumes and any other activity that people
get enjoyment from.

Every summer people drown here at the local beaches, ban that?
How about alcohol? How many does that kill a year, want to ban that too?
Been there done that. Those people know the risks and still engage in those
And paradoxically the libs that want to extinguish all smoking of tobacco
are almost all in favor of making marijuana legal. Go figure.
Research is revealing that the refined carbohydrate and its resultant diseases (metabolic syndrome) is going to bankrupt healthcare in 20 years
Type II diabetics and dementia patients are its most expensive victims.
I tend to agree. Smokers generally delay medical care until they are
on their death bed and die quickly. It is nothing compared to the cost
of the typical hypochondriacs who bleed medicare every day, linger
into their 90s and use far more medical services.
To be clear, I don't smoke but I am also not offended when people do
and I know their smoke is not harming me. Simply smelling a whiff of
smoke is harmless, it just offends a few people looking for a reason
to be offended. There seems to be a pretty long list of things that
offend these people. .

If that is true, and it sounds like bullshit to me, what is the effect
of the carbon monoxide from lawn mowers, smoke from BBQ grills and the
pollution from wood burning stoves? Should we ban all of them too?

Wouldn't you agree we should use caution and good sense when it comes to
exposing ourselves to such things?
