John Staddon says that cigarette smokers are being unfairly targeted by the government.
He argues that smoking is not as risky as many people believe and says the data on second-hand smoke is unreliable.
He further argues that lifetime medical costs for smokers are less than for nonsmokers, so penalizing (taxing) smokers for being a burden on our healthcare system is unjustified.
Staddon spoke at the John Locke Foundation in Raleigh, North Carolina.
