We all should love tobacco. It promotes ecomomic growth and reduces the world population without the side-effects of alcohol and drugs. Of course, I've never been a smoker but I'm glad others are.

Guess, there will be new type of tobacco smugglers.
Idiots haven't learnt from "dry laws" in US and USSR.

Good, ban this evil vice. Now all we need is a strong enough police force who will strike fear into the heart of anyone who even thinks of starting a black market.

Shredder could've done more than blow up the Channel Six building. I don't mean as far as murdering Splinter, but think of the possibilities if censors were not an issue.

Shredder and Krang combined had the biggest arsenal of any villains in all of the cartoons.

Wonder when we'll start hearing about the new "Al Capone" and the new Prohibition era in New Zealand and all the mayhem that will follow. I'm not for tobacco usage, but history has shown what complete banning results in.

As long as we leave cigars alone, I'm good.

But the truth is that having any of that banned in the U.S. is next to zero for SO many reasons.
