Smokers are discriminated against and so are nonsmokers. So where's the happy medium? If people are against smoking, then take the taxes off cigarettes, and put it to good use. Put it on alcohol.
I don't see any reason why the state or city government should use dirty, old cigarette revenue. Smokers are being told where and when they can smoke. If that's going to be the way it is, then when people go into a bar, they should be allowed two drinks and then they have to leave. Isn't that the law before they are legally drunk?
I wonder how many of these complainers about smokers consume alcohol. I wonder how many stop at two drinks before getting behind the wheel of a vehicle. Let's kill two birds with one stone. If you want to ban smoking, then ban alcohol, too. That seems fair. Maybe then all of our kids will grow up healthy.
