|A smoking Nazi|
Just how accurate is the invective "Smoking Nazi"? Read for yourself (do not limit yourself to the WikiPedia article, look up the references too):
|A German National Socialist Party Anti-Smoking ad.|
The Nazi anti-tobacco campaign included banning smoking in trams, buses and city trains,promoting health education, limiting cigarette rations in the Wehrmacht, organizing medical lectures for soldiers, and raising the tobacco tax. The National Socialists also imposed restrictions on tobacco advertising and smoking in public spaces, and regulated restaurants and coffeehouses. The anti-tobacco movement did not have much effect in the early years of the Nazi regime and tobacco use increased between 1933 and 1939, but smoking by military personnel declined from 1939 to 1945. Even by the end of the 20th century, the anti-smoking movement in postwar Germany had not attained the influence of the Nazi anti-smoking campaign.

Today in the USA, the Nazis are winning almost every battle against individual choice. Even in California, where as mentioned above local communities can ban tobacco smoking in the home, it is may be illegal soon to prevent marijuana smoking in a business, if it is not illegal already.
As with all arguments from Leftist Socialists, their heart-string pulling arguments go up in smoke as soon as they get their way. The war on tobacco was never about people damaging their lungs over a period of decades, it was about someone making money off of a legal product. It was all a smokescreen to take down another segment of profitable industry.
If the evidence is too muddy, then consider this. It is never healthy to fill your lungs with smoke, no matter the composition of the smoke. When nicotine can be delivered with harmless water vapor, the Smoking Nazis are still against it.
Oddly (not really) the marihuana advocates do have a limit to what is acceptable for supplying the legal pot user market: profits. Yes, the folks who will use any (unneeded) Trojan Horse to bring marijuana into mainstream acceptance, including medical use, have a fit if anybody makes any money off of the deal. Jacob Sullum points out they hysterical objection to profit making here.

This is not rocket surgery. All you have to do is listen to what the Socialists say and you will know where they are going.
