Who said I was against regulating alcohol? In fact, you miss the whole issue here, tobacco is finally going at least become as hard for kids to get as alcohol. Of course, the bigger question, is, why is the issue even being brought up here? Start another thread. And as far as addiction goes, its a hell of a lot harder to become addicted to alcohol than it is to cigarettes, and purpose of this is not to "tell people" what they can do with cigarettes, it's to keep it out of the hands of kids.
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
