Huh? There are more opportunities to use marijuana legally in the U.S. now than there have been since the 1930s.

I think what he/she means is the silly federal law that makes marijuana illegal. Yes 16 states have it legalized for medical purposes, but the feds are not starting to turn up the pressure on that.

Yet I can't go to a privately owned bar and smoke a cigarette.

LOL, anti-smoking Nazi here with a big to the Brits!

We're going after your leisure activities, too:

Woman banned from smoking in her garden - UPI.com

(Notice it was on her own property. Can the bedroom be next???)

Agree fully with Hurricane.

The little, petulant anti smoking liberty chipping libs want to tell me what I can do in my own home or my own car, you're going to have a hard fight on your hands.

I won't stop smoking in my own damn car or my garden or my bedroom or anywhere else that is MINE. You don't like it, don't come over. You're not invited anyway.

If they want to come after my lesiue activites they
need to bring a really big gun.

Only in Sweden or the UK could they pull that off.
That would never fly here in the USA.

This is a little over the top. You should be able to smoke in your car if no one under 18 is in the car and you keep the windows up and only open them after smoking when you get inside your garage, as long as there are no kids in your house or garage.

Still not many. Besides, the person I quoted said "U.S" government. That is the federal government, and the federal government has outlawed marijuana.

However, there's no constitutional protection (so far as I'm aware) for the use of drugs. A state of Oklahoma could outlaw cigarettes (or alcohol) right now, if it wanted to. Indeed, since the federal government is able to outlaw pot under the commerce clause, it could do the same for cigarettes or alcohol as well.
