What a waste, many lives later, that it has taken this long to get smoking under the purview of the FDA.  We can’t regulate away people doing things that are bad for themselves.  That’s not the point:  people can find any number of ways to hurt themselves, accidentally or on purpose.  What is unconsionable is that so much  money was made, and so many lives were lost, well after we learned about the proven dangers of smoking.
