Legalize Tobacco Now

Funny (to me at least) story from Wired. Apparently nicotine is the new wonder drug. Two questions: will the persecution end so I can smoke a fucking cigar in peace? And will the hippies add tobacco to their list of things to legalize alongside “hemp?” And yeah, I got this via Slashdot; but I’ll be fucked if I’m going to link to those nerdlingers.
