Could Smokers Licenses Be Coming!?


Tobacco control advocates are now calling for smokers to have to apply for a smokers license in order to buy cigarettes. One advocate called for the card to be monitored by the government and it would cut you off once you’ve had your allotment of cigarettes. Right now this is theory, but what kind of person advocates for this? Bet they can’t wait to propose their sugar and tans fat cards next.

    Wow…it’s open season on tobacco. I don’t think these scientific studies quite factor in the power of making a choice in their standards of health. I would feel like a pussy if my city council determined I had enough cigs for the month.

    They can have my tans fat, but I still want my trans fat.

    I’m sure Fez will be all for this, and Pepper is just gonna yell and complain about his baby neck.

    This fucking persecution on tobacco is what opened the door for King Bloomie to ban smoking outdoors in parks… Limit drink sizes… Its not gonna stop folks!

    The only thing that kinda makes sense in the tobacco control argument is the amount of money spent on health care for to tobacco related illness.
     
    Sure it’s someones choice to smoke but the figure as far as the cost in insurance costs and all that to the rest of us is substantial 
     
    I just don’t know

      @K Dubya that’s the only argument I can imagine, cholesterol and sedentary lifestyle are at least equally burdensome.  This will not look like some Orwellian govt mandate, in the US it will be enforced by insurance companies through prohibitively high premiums for smokers and discounts if you have a gym membership

      @K Dubya
       Then why doesnt the Govt ban it entirely?  Of course we all know the answer to that question

    the final quote from the professor is the epitome of paternal academic liberal thought: the public doesn’t know what’s best for them, luckily we’re here to show them

    wonderful first they tell you where you can smoke, then how much. Thankfully the folks at phillip morris will be more then happy to throw money at making sure this kind of bullshit wont happen. Because if Peppy centaur and the likes can only smoke a pack a week it will hurt their bottom line.

    See these fuckers don’t really care about smoking. They just want to see how much money they can squeeze out of smokers.
