See folks...repression and prohibition don't work...


From an article about scrounging fags in New York:

Although smokers are an ostracized lot, New York smoking rates are, it turns out, on the rise. There are more than 1 million smokers in the city, according the New York Department of Health, up two points from 14 percent in 2010. So, you might think smokers would have an easier time avoiding these situations. But the fact is there are simply more smokers to bother.

Nearly a decade of Bloomberg-induced health fascism and smoking rates have risen? Perhaps a new approach is needed from public health (and I don't mean escalating smoking control to 'shoot smokers on sight').
