    The world of politics and how they handle issues has changed and got so advanced so much in the developed nations. If our politicians cant keep up with the times we are going to be far behind as a Nation.

    What a stupid comment. Never mind no tobacco by 2020 but there won't be food to eat by 2020. Please sir when making statements think before you spit them out. make promises that you can keep. You will be violating human rights to do so.
