Well, we know "the one" must be right because well, they say he's a great speaker so, um, well.....

Anyway, as much as dislike FDR I have to give him credit for ending prohibition. While the U.S. doesn't have tobacco prohibition between ever rising taxes, public bans, propaganda campaigns, add bans and junk science you guys are well on the way to that sort of situation.

I'd be more then willing to buy tobacco products illegally that became my only alternative.
