A Hawaii state lawmaker has proposed legislation to effectively ban cigarette sales by raising the minimum smoking age, currently set at 21, to 30 starting in 2020, and to 100 by 2024.
I don't really mind walking through (or in some cases, around) clouds of smoke in designated areas. The libertarian side of me thinks people should be able to smoke as much as they want, so long as they're not affecting others' health.
The problem I have with smokers is them tossing their butts out of the car, making piles upon piles at every intersection. Also: starting fires.

As an aside about smokers being irritating with their smoke from someone who’s smoked for far too long. For reference, I’ve smoked on planes.
Even then, smoking was considered bad. One of the knock-on effects was there was no way to learn good etiquette. No “smoking mentor” if you will. Everything I’ve learned has been from years of pissing people off.
For example, if I’m on the sidewalk I make sure there isn’t anyone a good 20-30 feet behind me, so they’re not stuck in my smoke cloud just for walking in the same direction.
Embarrassingly, I’ve only been doing this for a few years now.
I do still throw cigarettes out the window, and I have no defense for it, though there was a 10 year stretch where I didn’t smoke in the car.
Cigarette butts on the ground or out the car window is stupid and avoidable. I have known smokers who carry a little tin for putting them in until they can get to a trash can. If you smoke and don't want to keep the butts in your car then why do you think anyone else wants them?
Heh. I'm kind of wondering if he (or his attorney) didn't get the brilliant idea from a Doc Martin episode that his PBS station recently aired? My PBS station aired just such an episode in the past couple of weeks.
When I want your opinion,-
I'll read it in your entrails
A man in Germany has been sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty of poisoning his co-workers' sandwiches over several years by mixing heavy metals into their lunches
When authorities searched the defendant's home they found a primitive chemistry laboratory in his basement and a substance that Judge Georg Zimmermann described as "more dangerous than all combat agents used in World War II."
The leader of a bizarre group that claims to be able to cure conditions such as cancer with breast massages, vaginal manipulation and burping has been branded a monster by a woman who says her mother was groomed by the 'cult.'
I mean, let's give them some credit for coming up with cheap and original solutions to curing cancer. All you have to do is join a cult, get your privates massaged, and.... uh... get burped by a magician?
You know what, if I was a woman with terminal cancer I might just take my chances and do it anyway. Imagine how much money I would save.
I wonder how famous I would get for inventing a cure:

And.Reg claims he can cure migraines by picking your nose
And then there's the part where I promote my clan:
AND, for the first week of spring, you can join Clan And.Reg for just $99.99
The best part!! Your first five nose-pickings are FREE !!
Honestly I had not heard of the eagle and squirrel until you had mentioned it... I had no idea what that was and had to go search online. Apparently it's been reposted all over social media. Meh... I don't really care that it happened in the same state.
Hey, with me you just never know what craziness I'll find in the news, I'm unique like that.
