as a smoker who does NOT seek to 'impose his choice on others not so inclined', I still endure the measured apoplexy of control-freaks who walk up to, and inside, the fumes of burnt foliage to pillory me about it....I've still never been thanked by one for filled-in potholes, teachers that get paid, or for keeping the complainant's property (et al) taxes affordable. I've been called a lot of things for smoking tobacco, but never a "tax-hero"....consideration and tolerance seem to be expected only from the smoker in these circumstances. They *could* be using some of that time and will to, say, collect petitions for electric buses (instead of the diesel amidst whose fumes they're happy to stand while they denounce my 'air pollution' 's effect on their health).
P.S. Ansu---I thought that was a hand-rolled cigarette in your latest avatar-pic(!); must be teeth...or one of those 'medical' smokes we hear about in 'dry states'!
