You'll get charged more if you smoke

Starting next Jan 1, if you smoke, be prepared to pay mo for health insurance under Obamacare!

Note how it's illegal for insurance companies to charge more if a person is overweight.  But it's ok to charge smokers more.  I call that fascism at its finest.

Getting cigs by prescription only?

I'I heard IL politicians are entertain the idea of makin ppl get cigs by prescription only. Even if I pretendm a nonsmoker I'd still CTFU at dis idea. I cant imagine a doctor prescribin me to smoke a pack of cigs every 2 days. Neva mind the fact I'd have to get the cigs from him. Gettin cigs by a prescription sounds like a way to totally ban smokin (which would include bannin cig sales.....but bannin cig sales means a lot less moolah for the politicians unless they heavily tax junk food and candy, notha idea I heard of).

If I ever need a prescription to get cigs, then no problem!  I'll just travel next door to Indiana where you can get cigs the normal way!  I dont even know how a cig prescription law would be enforced when cops see anyone smoking outdoors.
