Juz like I thought, Obama signed the PACT Act under the radar.
I agree with everyone (including in the comments) who called Obama is a liar. I know if I turned my back on anotha grpup of minorities (Indians in dis case), dey would be very welcome to shoot me, cuz I'd deserve it.
I hope Obama loses in the 2012 election.

Video: Pubs are dying because of one thing, the smoking ban. Scrap the unjust and unwanted smoking ban, and the pubs will recover immediately. Had the majority of customers really wanted smoke free pubs, then pubs would've voluntarily gone smoke free to cater to that demand. The fact that they didn't is proof that such demand never existed. And remember, in a free society, landlords would still be free to CHOOSE to remain smoke free if they so desire. And the law could serve to protect their choice.
Video: Save the children. The smoking ban ushered in an increase in drink spiking. Women forced to go outside for a smoke were made all the more vulnerable to sex offenders who could easily spike their unattended drinks. Not content with aiding rapists, the anti smoking lobby are now trying to help peodophiles gain access to children.

Listen: War on Smokers and the Rise of the Nanny State. American Freedom Radio. "When people begin to accept dictates from governments of what they are not supposed to say and do, for their own and collective good, they begin to forget all the liberties that previous generations knew. The Nannies are out to remake our society, and smokers are their lab rats."
Big Pharmaceutical: Three B.C.women file class action lawsuit over Pfizer quit-smoking drug. Champix causes depression and suicidal tendencies. "Champix was sold in Europe and the United States for about a year before it was put on sale in Canada, and in that year there were reports of psychiatric side effects and suicide, and yet the warnings are very mild on the Canadian product." Klein hopes to either see Champix withdrawn from the market, or to have the warnings significantly strengthened on the drug. Pfizer has not yet filed a statement of defence in the class action suit.

WASHINGTON—A panel of health experts will begin studying the health effects of starting Tuesday as the government grapples with how to regulate the products.
The , which has new powers to regulate tobacco, wants the panel's help in determining how menthol cigarettes affect the public's health, and whether they induce people to smoke and make it harder for them to quit.
The panel will be closely watched by tobacco companies such as , Altria and Reynolds American, all of which make menthol cigarettes under brands such as Newport, Marlboro and Camel.
The panel's recommendations will go to the FDA and the FDA is expected to publish a report on the public health impact of menthol by the end of the year. The FDA could ban the products or take less drastic steps such as restricting sales and advertising.
The FDA last year got new powers to regulate the tobacco industry and heavily restrict how the products are advertised, particularly to children. Many health experts have, over the years, raised concerns that the minty flavor in menthol cigarettes induces people to smoke and makes it harder to quit.
A ban on cigarettes flavored with fruit or candy took effect this year.
Tobacco companies have challenged some of the FDA's powers to restrict their advertising and lost in key areas.
