To the Editor:
I am a non-smoker. If I go in a business that is smoky, I leave, take my business elsewhere. My question is why smoking?
What about alcohol? Alcohol is society’s oldest and most popular drug.
Drunk driving is the nation’s most frequently committed violent crime.
Half of all teenage fatalities are alcohol-related. Someone is killed by a drunk driver every 40 minutes.
