Unfortunately, this is not an April 1st joke. Years of a taxpayer and pharmaceutical industry funded 'denormalization' campaign against people who smoke has predictably led to worrisome episodes of intolerance. In this case, a doctor seems to have forgotten his Hippocratic oath and faces felony charges for assaulting someone smoking near his car.
In case anyone was wondering if it's a good idea to just assume that the medical community is always a good source of advice regarding legislation to promote 'healthy behaviour,' this should serve as a wake-up call....
