Nanny State: Hawaii Branch

The state of Hawaii has raised the legal smoking age to 21. I suspect other states will follow suit. After all, the drinking age in every state is 21. (I explain the main reason why here.) So, let me get this straight, a young man or woman can vote, get married, adopt a child, pose nude for a website, sign a contract, and join the U.S. military and fight and die for the U.S. government, but can’t smoke a cigarette in Hawaii. Or drink a beer in any state. Or, in many cities, have a garage sale without a permit. And Americans think that this is the land of the free?

Thanks to C.R.
