18. This is ridiculous
Edited on Tue Jun-21-11 10:50 AM by ThirdEye
I find smoking repulsive but I think this is over the top.

It reminds me of the constant stream of anti-smoking ads on TV. They always make me wonder, "why is *not* smoking something I have to hear about and think about every single day? Since when was *not* smoking something I have to reaffirm regularly?"

There are so many other places we could divert some of that effort and money towards: how to eat healthy, how to identify over-processed foods, promoting the importance of voting, teaching kids how to think critically and see through marketing, making it cool to be "into politics", understanding how our government runs, warning about the environmental affects of product packaging, etc etc.
