"You may be confusing his 'favorable treatment of tobacco use' with his belief that business owners should have the right of self-determination about whether or not to allow smoking on their premises."
Could be. He is right on that score, of course. Yet tobacco is such a scourge that I hate to hear him spend so much time defending it. But yeah, you are right, if businesses aren't permitted to allow their customers to use tobacco, which is legal, then total control of those businesses by government seems well within the bounds of possibility.

On the subject of tobacco. A trend I've noticed in the last couple of years is that more and more young guys seem to be chewing. At times, the juices on the floors of job sites are truly disgusting. I preferred smoke.
