    The Clueless Crusade to Ban E-Cigarettes

    But as the percentage of Americans who smoke has stayed relatively stuck in the high teens and low twenties, the anti-smoking movement has turned to increasingly paternalistic, dictatorial, and infantilizing measures to achieve its goals. From statewide bans on smoking in more and more places to the censoring of marketing terms such as light and mild that have ushered in an age of childishly color-coded cigarette packs to plans for scrubbing smoking in movies and TV shows, thereís no logical stopping point for treating us all as moral defectives incapable of making our own choices.

    And now, the prohibitionists are taking on e-cigarettes because... because... because... smoking tobacco is bad for you. And they donít think you should decide how to live your life.
