    Yup, it's been proposed to stop selling alcohol and porn on base before. It's just a matter of time before it comes up again.

    I think it definitely has its place in combat and you don't have individual rights while wearing a uniform :hs:

    smoke when you can, dip when you can't. it'll never get fully banned. and even if it does, smokers always find ways.

    i don't like smokers but that will never fly. If military enacts something like that 30 minutes wont go by until a court says fuck you military you cannot do that.

    I don't understand the issue anyways, military is super strict on smoking as it is. Smoke deck on the ship.. if you cant stand the shit dont go near it. Designated smoking areas on shore commands. Same thing.

    Man, I don't see this flying. They didn't let people smoke during WLC until 2000 hrs. They were going bat shit crazy for the first week. My roommate would sneak in one during lunch. He said he couldn't take it.

    Why not ban alcohol? Almost every sitrep that goes about domestic disputes, attempted rape, suicide, crashing a vehicle, etc had alcohol involved. "Drunken Sailor" image in foreign ports is something they hate.

    I understand we signed the contract, they can do whatever they want, etc etc... however the the courts still hold power over the government AND the military, and something like this wouldn't last a day before civil union groups and pro-military groups are flooding the system with anti-constitution lawsuits.

    Not to mention tobacco companies would have it changed in a heartbeat in congress. The military is a huge user of tobacco products.

    I realize that being in the military you arent the free US citizen you used to be...but banning something like that is way over the top nazi bullshit. I can see making them regular price. But not carrying them at stores and having no smoking areas blah blah blah is a terrible idea. (i smoked for maybe 1 year out of 6 in the military and chewed for about 3)

    Yeah, I really want people smoking next to me at the chow hall, hospital, restaurant, any enclosed area. on the other hand, I'll go to a bar and I don't mind that people are smoking next to me. That's one of the few places I don't care for either way.

    Doctors say second hand smoke is more dangerous. Fuck, I don't want none of that second hand shit, pass me the cigarette instead! :mamoru:

    I think he meant no designated smoking areas. If they did away with those, people would just find somewhere else to do it. At least with designated smoking areas there isnt cig butts everywhere.

    True, true.

    I hated how on field days, they would make me pick up butts. Fuck that shit, I'll make the smokers police call the smoke area. I'm not gonna pick up after a nasty fuck because he can't place his cigarette butt in it's proper receptacle after he's done smoking.

    Yea my first 2 years in they would muster the duty section to clean the smoke deck every night. That pissed me off a bit.

    Generally, in the AF only smokers pick up butts and have to clean the smoke pit.
