    The ultimate 'chemical death sentence', by any standards.

    You're completely sidestepping the point, John: your 'argument' in the smoking-ban thread is even much more ridiculous than someone demanding the banning of all cars, buses, motor vehicles, not for their contribution to greenhouse gases, but because you might be injured or killed by one of them. We can't have nasty, dangerous motor vehicles threatening your precious rights whenever you go for a stroll, can we?

    Do you like how much tax money cigarettes put into the hands of the current regime in the U.S., HMLT? Cuz it's a lot of money.

    Maybe the poll should be:

    Who's more righteous?

    a) nicotine junkies

    b) speed freaks

    c) skag addicts

    d) stimulant fiends

    e) compulsive net surfers

    Because I know in a poll that asked:

    Which drug is the most likely to cause cancer?

    a) heroin

    b) cocaine

    c) marijuana

    d) amphetamines

    e) tobacco

    The answer would most certainly be "e."

    You're a bit slow tonight, Nomad. The poll above is a joke, a response to the ludicrous poll Zhou put up on 'D R U G S' last week, remember? the one you were so eager to defend?

    So you're in favour of banning drugs on the basis of their associated medical risks? Presumably, then, you're totally in favour of banning all drugs, especially heroin. But you want them legalized too of course ... Charming.

    I never defended the poll as such (if you'll go back, you'll see I admitted it was silly), the only thing I defended was mine and other poster's messages written in good faith, stories about experiences, against the railing accusation that everyone who does drugs and/or admits it is somehow evil and has given themselves a "chemical death sentence."

    I am certainly in favor of banning heroin across the board with tight regulations--in fact, I would prefer if there were much tighter regulations than there are now) on medical use and distribution.

    The only illegal drug that I believe it would be overall beneficial judicially to legalize would be marijuana. Too many people are given permanent records and felonies that ruin their lives based on childhood indiscretions based on the use or sale of what is medically known to be a perfectly harmless substance.

    It depends entirely on whether you think that passive smoking can be hazardous to workers, in general, not me personally. If someone does believe that (and we can discuss it) then the legislation is identical in intent to the laws protecting workers against other hazardous materials such as asbestos or carbon monoxide. You are presumably aware that much of the campaigning in the ROI for the ban came from trade unions?

    I've gone to various events since the ban where smoking has taken place so I don't think your characterisation of me as a prissy self-centred egoist are all that accurate.

    Perhaps the ban is "ridiculous", but it has happened. Reducing the use of cars is "ridiculous" as well, as are many things that I would like to see. Demanding "the impossible" and all that...

    what? my original d r u g s poll was imperfect?!?! god damn it! how could this have happened?? i will check with the team of MIT bio-chemists and neurologists that I hired to come up with it and get back to you with an explanation shortly.

    prolly not high on your list at the moment, but have you ever even heard of this thing called "having fun"?

    I get the feeling if I don't answer this question correctly then a bomb will go off in a children's playground or something, thus I say "All of the above! I enjoy smoking in ALL venues!". HA! Foiled you, evil villain.
