I've taken a real close look at the provisions in Senate Bill 536 regarding "look-alike" synthetic drugs. It seems to me that a good case can be made that cigarettes with additives of any type will become a "look-alike" synthetic drug unless Governor Pence vetoes the bill today. Only pure tobacco products are exempt from the "look-alike" synthetic drug provisions. Click here for a wikipedia entry on additives in cigarettes.

Here's a link to common definitions of intoxication which includes poisoning. Here's a wikipedia link on nicotine poisoning.

I've always thought that as the Democrats have co-opted Thomas Jefferson as their own, Libertarians should do the same with the generally classical liberal bourbon Democrat Grover Cleveland. He is my favorite United States President. Like me, he generally fits into the old "classical liberal" paradigm. Classical liberalism still has many adherents in the Democratic Party.
