Will they ban alcohol and junk food next?

Bill you should support this ban since it is not governmental regulation at all but rather the free market that imposed this ban. Or do you oppose free market bans as well????

I love it when the "libertarians" have the free market exposes the shallowness of their arguments.

lol, of course the two non-libertarian posters don't even understand that bill was pointing out that CVS, a "drug store" that sells health and wellness items, besides cigarettes has also been selling alcohol and junkfood.
I wonder why they think that libertarian arguments are "shallow", perhaps it is because they don't really understand them to begin with.
Of course bill supports the right of CVS to sell whatever they want, or not sell whatever they want.
Personally, I would have liked to see them stop selling all cigarettes except for American Spirits and electronic cigarettes. The ill health effects from cigarettes come from the hundreds of added chemicals as well as the radiation found in the chemical phosphorus fertilizers used in the production of tobacco that ends up sticking to the leaves. Of course people who smoke radiation are going to get cancer, DUH.. They have been using that type of fertilizer since the early part of the last century and that is why lung cancer among cigarette smokers became such a huge problem. You think Native Americans got lung cancer from smoking organic tobacco?? Nope...
But at the end of the day, they can do whatever they want, they don't have to pursue the truth if they don't want to.

Bravo!!!! t's a dirty, smelly, nauseous, unattractive detestable habit; and no one has smoked seductively since Lauren Bacall. Except Jon Hamm, who just acts and has never smoked. A smoker's hair and clothes smell and their teeth turn yellow. And if that's not enough, it rots one's lungs, wrinkles, yellows and eventually turns one's skin grey.
How's that for turning off a date?
