I agree with this. Cigarettes are as available as ever, but the percentage of people who smoke is at an all-time low. It's not as if drugs would be on the shelf right next to the Snickers. Give everyone accurate information on the dangers and health risks, then let adults make the decision for themselves, like we do with other drugs.
