This is so ridiculous. The federal government pretends to combat the ill effects of smoking by taxing and regulating tobacco, which ends up hurting the very people they are pretending to help.
When the free market took up the challenge of the unhealthy effects of smoking, it invented a cigarette that wasn't unhealthy, and had many other benefits to boot. The invention of vaping is quite literally saving lives, and causing a nice little business boom to boot.
Gee, who would you rather put in charge of this kind of policy?
This is all just more heavy handed protectionism of the cartels that are running our lives.
