A question of Smoke

Is it just me or does it seem like the crowd that protests for litigation against evil tobacco companies is the same crowd that's in favour of legalizing marijuanna? Believe me I am against drug prosecution, as it is in contradiction to individual rights, but it is asanine for these people to champion law suits against tobacco companies and at the same time defend the local dealer. It's as if what makes it morally right to sue them is the fact that they were good at selling cigarettes. They claim on one hand that cigarette makers manipulated the puiblic, tricked them into smoking knowing it was harmful and in the same paragraph they celebrate the local dealer who fights against arbitrary persecution of fascist lawmakers. The pot dealer's only crime being that he provides a service that helps people relax; a product people want. Well what difference is there between stoned Jonny and Tobacco pickin' Pete? there is none except that Pete eventually got good at tobacco farmin' and eventually became a coorporation and switched his name to Players, thus logically making him evil. Could you ever imagine sueing your highschool dealer when you hit 40 and you're memory isn't as good as you think it should be. "Well he offered it to me at a party and i was too drunk to say no." Ridiculous! This is just another example ofs young activists who are unable to intergrate their thoughts and form a complete uncontradictory philosophy.
