    Why not just quit and not have tobacco control your life? There are several /Nicotine Replacements that can help

    Tobacco takes it's highest toll on the mentally ill and those addicted to other drugs. But baning it would only add legal problems to there list.

    Because sucking on an e-cig gives me time to reflect.

    If they made it illegal, how would they explain people still getting lung cancer or other diseases associated with smoking?

    The taxes that the government collects is a big reason tobacco will remain legal.
