What’s colossally obnoxious and idiotic about this is that there have been laws in place for decades banning the sale of tobacco products to minors. The antis are so dependent upon crying about how they are "saving the children" to try to give themselves some semblance of legitimacy, that they become blind to the fact that minors already can’t buy the stuff.
Organizations like the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids shouldn’t even exist. I’m wondering if in this day and age with all the militant brainwashing if you could even find a minor smoking a cigarette anyway.
And speaking of cigarettes – here’s another HUGE problem that’s been going on for ages.
In the antis minds – Tobacco = Cigarettes.
I seriously, truly believe, and I even bet that it could be proven (if we were allowed to do so) that people like Matthew Myers, President of Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids has major psychological problems that drive his misplaced, ignorant activism.
The annual report, titled "A Broken Promise to Our Children: The 1998 State Tobacco Settlement 13 Years Later," …
Again, utterly ridiculous just with the title. Save the children! Save the children!
How about we enforce the current law against "children" being able to buy or use tobacco products?
Oh, I get it.

Here’s what it’s really about – 3 things –
3. Tobacco Prohibition
