64. You are seeing this
from a safe place with your insurance policy in your pocket. There are a lot of low income people who have no way of paying for the expensive pills or patches to help them beat their addiction and they are paying for this too out of their meager budget.

You are paying for cardiac and blood pressure problems for people who are overweight and complications of diabetics who can't stay on their diets to keep their sugars in line. You are paying for people with illnesses that have a genetic component as well as kids in risky school sports that get injured.

What do you suggest be done about them so you don't have to help society by forking out a few more bucks? Should all these people be fined too? Are you for financing antismoking clinics for these poor people who can't afford it? Then when the funds dry up the program will be cut back. We will be right back where we started. I like to think of us all being in this together as a society as opposed to just myself.
