The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a report showing that after 40 years of decline, the smoking rate in the U.S. has stabilized over the last five years, with 21% of Americans still lighting up on a regular basis. If lung cancer, heart disease, tobacco taxes, and public smoking bans won't get them to stop, it may be time to take more drastic measures...
