On the San Antonio tobacco ordinance…

*knocking the rust off*…

I just saw an ad for the new San Antonio ordinance prohibiting tobacco sales to people under 21. Part of it had a woman saying, “and you don’t need it anyway.”

Excuse me, but who the hell are you to tell an adult what s/he needs and doesn’t need? “Brains not fully developed at 18, blah blah blah.” Well, brains seemed to be fully enough developed at 18 to send their owners off to the meat grinders of Southeast Asia against their will, so what’s changed since then?

“Well, let them join the military if they want to smoke and drink.”

No. That is every bit the bullshit argument that “if you want to have guns, you should join the military” is. Really, how about we try freedom for once?
