    I just really don't see the point in arguing that something shouldn't be taxed because it shortens the lives of those who choose it. What should be taxed?

      I'm not someone who's averse to taxes, but unless you're able to prove that shorter lives create a cost burden on society (and you won't because the opposite is true) then there is no justification to tax it.
