1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    I actually said "no" out loud when I read that. I'm not totally against the scheme - so long as there is some catalogue that people can look through I don't really see a problem with putting cigarettes out of sight, but the idea that enforced protection of health should come above individual liberty is something I certainly don't agree with.

    Couldn't have said it better myself.

    I think everyone is being a bit illogical when it comes to the cigarette war. Yes, cigarettes are carcinogic, but I don't remember being a kid and deciding to smoke because I saw packs of cigarettes in a styore. I started smoking at 17, because my friends told me about it giving a cool head buzz plus I was always facinated by it for some reason even though my family is mostly non-smokers. Now I am addicted, but it's my fault and when I decide I really do want to quit I can quit it. It just seems like the government always wants to get overbearing on both ends of the political spectrum and not just in the USA, but worldwide.
