It seems, in so many ways, America is being turned upside down. What seems logical is illogical and vice versa. I can think of no better example than that of cigarettes and marijuana.
One may purchase cigarettes in New York City for between $11 and $14.50 per pack, but there is practically nowhere in the city to smoke them. Makes perfect sense.
There is an interesting phenomenon happening in this country. It seems the legal substance cigarettes, is being regulated into illegality, while the illegal substance marijuana, is gaining legality.
At the same time more states and municipalities are outlawing the use of cigarettes, they are enacting legislation to legalize marijuana. I say outlawing the use of cigarettes, not the sale, for governments could never go without the tax revenue.
