Cigarettes should be a low priority

— After reading all the articles about the banning of cigarettes, it became confusing to me. What about alcohol, DUIs and drugs? What could be worse?

I thought we were living in a free country of speech and whatever goes.

Who’s to decide what one should do? However, I do think there should be limitations.

If more people looked into the problems of their own households, would they be so quick to judge outsiders? This pertains to poor to rich.

I think people should look into the mirror first and cigarettes should be at the bottom of the list. Let’s take a poll. Drugs, cigarettes or DUIs?
