Most people can have a few drinks, and it doesn't give them cirrohsis. Tobacco on the other hand is the most powerfully addictive substance on the planet. What other drug do you know of where the addict needs it once an hour or the cravings begin? Myself, I want it available to adults as a way of improving the gene pool, because only idiots would start smoking after the age of twenty. But I want it strictly restricted from kids. Tobacco addicts should have to get it by prescription, because they are sick, disgusting, cancer-fume spewing reprobates.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
