23. My $.02....

I think that if public money is involved in the treatment of tobacco-related illnesses, the holder of the purse strings gets to make some decisions therein. Of course, this is a stronger argument in Canada, where all health care costs are part of the public purse.

And on a more.....musing level....how many lives have to be saved, or massive suffering avoided before some perceptional discomfort on the part of any or all smokers is outweighed?
