You just proved something about the libertarians, in California cigarettes are even banned outdoors at beaches and parks, and the libertarians haven't made a peep, yet they are rightly famous for constantly harping on pot.
When confronted, the liberaltarians will of course say that they are pro-cigarette, we assume, but why after 40 years of being identified with promoting ALL drugs, do they even have to be asked?
They have been uninterested in 30 years of a new and increasing banning of cigarettes, of the imposition of a NEW prohibition against tobacco, yet frantic and screaming on the importance of legalizing drugs.
Exactly. It’s one of the reasons I can never take libertarians seriously. Not a peep about cigarette bans, but loud obsessiveness over dope.
I call absolute BS on your argument. Libertarians are not silent on smoking bans. If you notice their connection to other drugs more, I don’t know. Maybe it’s that the drug debate is more noticeable. Maybe it’s confirmation bias. Maybe they actually do spend more time and money on pot, but that’s because prohibition is worse than restriction.
There’s also the fact that anti-prohibition has a longer pedigree. The libs’ antismoking crusade didn’t explode until relatively recently. Here in MN, ground zero of tobacco lawsuits, libertarians have been more consistent than any others on our side of the “public health” debate.
you do not know many, if any, libertarians do you??
However, you seem to have no problem trying to drive a wedge between conservatives and libertarians...
and you appear to do it often..
perhaps you are simply a republican party hack, who wants to keep the conservative / libertarian wing of the party in check???
