Does anyone else find it ironic that as a society, the us is punishing tobacco users while giving pot users a pass?

The us federal stance is that pot is illegal and tobacco is legal

They are giving tobacco a pass, as much as they can control nature and all.

Call me Kreskin. MJ will be fully legal soon, and regulated so they can tax it. Just like cigs. ANoyone who believes in the .gov just think about that. Cigs accomplish zero other than a slight buzz, and cancer. However the .gov allows them. Gee, I wonder why?

I don't care what you want to smoke, who you want to poke. I don't care what you want to shoot or how many bullets you can have.
I just want people to mind their own business and leave me the fawk alone if I'm not fucking up thier shit.

No, I find it ironic that the FDA seems to be fighting the innovation of vaping.:smokin:

ironicaly this country was practically founded on tobacco money and is still to this day the primary income of the fed gov via tax rev. if cig/gars/pipe/tabac was band out right this country would be bankrupt with in a week.

we are tied to tobacco harder than we are to oil.
Glad someone got my vague point :)

FDA is in charge of legalizing tobacco, but spends money advertising against it

I love watching old movies. Tobacco smoke and booze everywhere. I don't smoke or drink, but I love the freedom that used to exist.

Newsflash: This nation has been bankrupt for many decades. We just refuse to notice it.

FDA didn't legalise it. It was already legal. IMO, the blame for it's legality falls on Congress, the holder of the FDA's pursestrings.

It was a fine time to enter the workforce (1968). Smoke at your desk, drinks after work, dollar shots at the bar.

I miss my all-to-brief mis-spent yooth, but I'm making up for it in my old age.:grinpimp:



^^Reminds me of clubbin' in Malibu.:massey:

Any link to back up these claims? Not the bankruptcy part (because we are), the tax dependency part.
