Sometimes I wonder, why is drinking in public, like at the central station, forbidden but smoking is not?

I know at least one politician in the riksdag who was working toward a ban on public smoking, or something along those lines. Henrik Ripa, from the moderate party, who would've known?

Wait, why? I don’t mean that everybody should drink in the public, I just mean it shouldn’t be forbidden.

I think both drinking in general and smoking should be completely banned. If any of them were invented today there is no way they would be allowed. I realize of course that it would probably be hard to realize such plans, but I'd rather dream :)

I dream the opposite :) http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/23/who-drug-decriminalization_n_5606609.html

Obviously, but sugar is naturally a part of anything you eat, neither alcohol nor smoking would have been unless it was invented. Also I do agree quite a bit with the WHO here, which I understand can seem contradictory to what I previously wrote.

Yeah perhaps kind of, but not granulated sugar, and then I’d kind of say that alcohol is a natural part of many things we eat and drink too. And yes, like sugar too, not in the amounts we use it in processed foods/drinks.
