Could be what you hear on your holiday in Hawaii in the next few years to come!

Is this a good idea? Bad idea?

Probably a good idea for health.. a bad idea for freedom.

Sad for those already addicted, but good for society long term. Maybe doctors can prescribe them, or better still, substitutes.

If addicted then don't holiday there.

I am not that keen on freedoms such as - freedom to harm yourself. There seems to be an on-cost. - in a british case, being carted off hospital and being admitted ....

I mean you wouldnt insist on a freedom to incinerate oneself - if you were in a house full of children ? or would you ?

freedom to choose what you consume and what you don't. Some consider fast food as harming your body etc.. I think it's important (as long as you're not affecting anyone else) to be able to do what you want to do with your body.

And no, i wouldn't but i would insist on freedom to be able to drink alcohol.

OG you could take your own there.. it seems it's the purchasing of products that will be restricted.
Never too old to start a new hobby. When you reach 100 ,and can no longer self harm yourself and others, you can pop into the equivaent of Walmart and buy yourself an AR 15 Assault rifle and a few Berettas.
They'll have pensioners hanging around outside the shops waiting for a hundred-year old to stagger by so he can buy some cigarettes for them...

All it will do is increase the demand for 'under the counter' cigarettes. Much to the smugglers delight !
