Good point, i wouldn't even consider that a conspiracy theory either. It's within their rights to lobby for things that will help thier business....whether we agree or not.

Companies and private organizations spend billions each year in advertising.

Heck, there are a number of groups that try to restrict the alcohol and cigarette makers. Over the years they have restricted advertising (Fred Flintstone has an infamous commercial for cigarettes lol) age of use and added warnings. Heck, look at all the DUI laws.

That's why I'm voting for Ron Paul in 2012.

He's the only one in touch with the people.

And what part of the constitution gives them that authority?

Give it up and grow up IMO.

They are not addicted.

They don't kill anybody. The war on drugs is killing thousands.

So educate yourself on this topic and grow up.

Both major parties are driving and getting rich off the drug war gravy train. And they've fixed it so we have no viable alternative...what a racket..
