How is the pressure working for them to use illegal substances?I'm sick to death hearing about the evils of tobacco products.Do something about it,make all tobacco products illegal and quit harping about the marketing strategies to sell to the youth of this nation.Don't kid yourselves,if the powers that be could collect revenue from street drugs,everything would be legal.They make me sick.

"Fewer teens are using tobacco for several reasons such as vigorous anti-smoking campaigns, Minnesota's smoking ban in bars and restaurants," Huh? How does the smoking ban in bars reduce tobacco use among teens?

@mahoneyt Can't smoke in restaurants either. It gives them one less public option in which to do it. I think that's the idea.
