This week's online poll: 'Should we outlaw smoking?'

By Staff | Aug 28, 2014

This week we are asking if smoking tobacco should be outlawed?

It has devastating health consequences, and it tends to start among teenagers who are not prepared to make major life decisions.

Should we raise taxes on these products to discourage their use? Should employers be allowed to say, "No, we do not hire smokers?"

Let us know what you think.
