Shouldn't it be my decision if I want to use something that is potentially dangerous? One of the things that bothers me the most about this isn't that the EU is looking at making things more difficult for those who thought they were living in a free society through the removal of the freedom to make an adult decision. The thing that gets me the most is that we're headed this way in the US. There are those in Congress right now who are trying to pass health-care "reform" that will give the bureaucrats control over everything we do that might impact our health simply because what we do that might impact our health will become their responsibility. That means it may become illegal to drive a car because there is the potential for you to die in a fireball, or become a vegetable, and they might not want to be responsible for the meat sac that was once your body.

See, governments that have taken over responsibility for your physical well-being realize its cheaper for them to remove your freedoms, especially those that might hurt you, than to take care of you after you've become hurt. Their making these decisions for you is their health insurance...
