Yes and it also killed George Harrison at the ripe old age of 58. Your point is?

Tobacco is one of my preferred drugs

But, then I really am not a regular user, very much.

It is odd how many tobacco Nazis there are around these days.

Some people rant about it,
and then argue for relaxing pot laws. Can people take them seriously?

it's quite possible to support the legality of both products and still think that both are harmful to health (though one is far more harmful than the other.)

P.S. -- i can't believe Bono didn't make the list!!!

I think they both smell horrid and make the person smoking it smell bad as well.

I don't think either should necessarily be criminalized, however.

But you'll find that the "ranting" about cigarettes is more common because obviously most people find themselves around tobacco smoke regularly as opposed to marijuana smoke. (Remove the college-age crowd and you've probably got a good 80% of marijuana smokers gone).

I agree.....smokers are being treated worst than "crack addicts." I don't smoke anymore, but if my 80 year old mother in law wants to smoke a cigarette in her own home, on her own property or outdoors and away from others. Let her.

That's not the best list. I would never put Clapton or Elvis in a top greatest Rock and Roll smokers list. First of all, Clapton isn't cool period. Elvis was obviously a bad motherfucker but do you associate him with smoking? No. Not at all.

I'd put Slash up there maybe just because of the iconic image of him playing a guitar solo, drunk as hell with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth. I even think of Cobain with a cigarette more so than Clapton or Presley. Although, Dylan and Richards being the top two is pretty appropriate.

By the way, I am a cigarette smoker and any law or rule of this sort that can potentially keep a kid from picking up the habit is a good thing.

Practically every high school baseball player dips in this area, so that would be something if it was criminalized.

Marijuana should be legal, and this is coming from someone who has never smoked it and has no intention to.

I'm not a tobacco smoker and likely never will be. I think the habit's gross and pointless, but if somebody else wants to do it, who am I to stop them? A good chunk of my friends smoke, and they all know how stupid I think it is, but I'm also not going to lecture them about it. I'm sure they get enough of that as it is. I think some of the smoking bans that are coming about are getting ridiculous. Inside, and in some public areas? Sure, ban smoking. But, out on the sidewalk or in one's own lawn? Let it go. It's not illegal, as much as some might wish it to be.

As for marijuana, yeah, it should be legal. Considering there's never been a proven case of lung cancer associated with that, and there's been thousands upon thousands of cases from tobacco (not to mention the deaths linked to alcohol), I think it's safe to say that marijuana's the less harmful of those. Of course, that isn't to say that smoking pot isn't harmful, because, quite obviously, smoking anything is damaging. But, I digress, since that isn't really the issue at hand here.
