Federal officials meet at U-M to call for tobacco-free college campuses nationwide

 “This restores the smoke-free and tobacco-free campus as the social norm in our society,” Koh said Wednesday, noting that the number of young people who have started smoking after the age of 18 has increased in the U.S.

Since when is the government's place to institute societal "norms" in a "free" society? If there are more young people taking up the habit, maybe it's because there are too many little Mussolini's everywhere trying to dictate their lifestyle preferences to what are otherwise free and autonomous citizens. Has it ever occurred to these people (our servants in public office) that dictating to folks can have the opposite effect? No, of course not.

So says Howard Koh, assisstant secretary for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services:


“Let’s make smoking history.”

Right...Just like it worked with alcohol. Nationwide discrimination is the only sure thing that will result from this ludicrous idea, not to mention the brain drain that is sure to follow at a campus near you.

  1. So American students are not rebellious then? Or is it that they are, but it does not get reported in the brainwashed media?

  2. Of course they are rebellious Junican. However, draconian bans like this give faculties across America an excuse to get rid of people that they don't like.
