Bhutan sends people to prison - even Buddhist monks - for smoking tobacco. Tobacco use (except in one's home) is banned on religious grounds. Tobacco cannot be legally grown, although one can import a small amount if a heavy tax is paid. I find it interesting that all theocratic (or God-inspired) States - even Buddhist - make the obliteration of personal pleasure their number one priority. Whether they ban alcohol, tobacco, music, "pornography", consensual adult sexual relations or drugs, the principle is the same: the subordination of personal happiness to the whims of the theocratic elite.

Thank you Michael Stamper.
The article itself is like most of what I expect to read when mainstream journalists cover it.
