Well, first for your cigarettes, then salt, then your french fries, then your cokes. Now your cigars.
What next? What next?
The biggest problem with America is a too big, too power-mad, overweening government which refuses to leave the people the heck alone to make their own choices in life.
It's a sickness, the desire to control one's fellow adults. What neurosis motivates such things? A normal American detests such jerks, by homeland instinct.

Here's the quote:
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. Their very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be ‘cured’ against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.
—C. S. Lewis, God in the Dock
