    I finally figured it out.Smoking is bad for you and secondhand smoke is bad for non-smokers.Alcohol fines are higher than smoking fines.You get stopped for DUI,but not for smoking.So its all about money.Sundays is the LORDs day,its also the only day some children get to spend a day with parents not drinking.I hope SUNDAY ALCOHOL SALES DOSE NOT PASS.
