Whoever is angry face emoji (most unmanly thing, just tell me you don't like my opinion and why) I don't think anyone should smoke. I smoked for 17 years until I quit. The smell diusgust me. But let's be perfectly honest. If government feels it's ok to send my 18 year old child to fight and possibly die and be responsible for multi million dollar equipment, but think 18 is too young to smoke. Obviously the bigger issue is the govt thinks fighting in a war is safer than cigarettes. That's what you should be piss ed about

If that is your take I understand but why did they raise the legal age to 21 for alcohol? Think about it. The developing brain grows way into the early twenties. Protecting the health of our youth is important to most people. Protecting our country is a complete different issue.
