What's worse: Secondhand smoke or alcohol?
Down in Olympia, they have a problem. If they crack down on drunk drivers, they would have to build a new prison to house them, and that could cost millions of dollars. So they decided that it is cheaper to allow multiple DUIs. Its just a misdemeanor, and after all, a lot of important people drive drunk.
But we must prosecute smokers (even though smoking is legal and we depend on the exorbitant taxation) because secondhand smoke kills. Yet secondhand alcohol kills much quicker and whole carloads at a time. It destroys families, orphans children, costs many millions of dollars in medical and insurance claims, and makes vagrants out of previously normal people.
So whats the problem?
