    What truly amazes me is the number of people who want to ban tobacco but are all in on weed.
    My understanding is that a host of chemicals can be, AND ARE ADDED, TO E-CIGS. Nicotine, Cocaine, hash etc. Not all of that stays in the inhaling person.

    You don't understand how banning tobacco and celebrating noxious weed makes sense? Me neither.

    I count quitting smoking as one of the smartest things I've ever done. For many smoking years my cholesterol levels were terrible, off the charts. A perfect diet for 6 months reduced it only 6 points, and I never once cheated on the diet.

    Quit smoking, eat whatever I want and now bad cholesterol is low, good cholesterol is high and overall number is TERRIFIC to use the doc's term. [under100]. SMOKING.

    And am now the oldest person ever in my family. Not certain that's a good thing as other parts grumble.

    Does this make sense to anyone because I don't get it.
    Aside from not making sense to me...... constitutional amendments can be a dangerous thing.

    And - Why the hell use a constitutional amendment.........!?! The state’s Constitution Revision Commission has gotta be full of hot air that came from assholes.
