I think the National Center is surveying the wrong people on purpose... free advertising for their company.

I use social networks daily and don't have one care to do any of that.

Yea me neither. The only effect it has had on me is that I want to party more, but that's it. no smoking, drugs, etc.

Well, I use facebook, google+ and twitter and I think smoking is disgusting, drinking is unhealthy and bad(and gives you a big ass gut that's hard to get rid of), and drugs are just plain stupid (Although I have smoked weed twice a long time ago which is kinda contradicting but still...)

How does you having smoked weed contradict your statement? (that drugs are stupid.) At least when you tell people that drugs are stupid you can verify it because you've tried it yourself :)

Smoking Cancer sticks should be Classified Under Drugs cause they hurt you, and will kill you , and Alcohol Should be under drugs also cause it gets you acting retarded and your a danger to society, some people get more violent drunk then smoking weed and cigarettes have nicotine that makes it habit forming when you can leave the chronic at any time you choose

Smoking should really be illegal imo.
1. They cause lung cancer which is one of the hardest cancers to treat. Plus it's extremely painful.
2. They hurt other people. Second-hand smoke causes cancer to innocent people who choose not to smoke.

And it smells like ass...
