Smoking The Same As Nudity In Movies?

Well according the the MPAA(Motion Picture Assn. of America), scenes that glamorize smoking can now earn a movie an R rating. Smoking can take a G or PG movie and make it an R. Are parents really this incompetent today?

(L.A. Times) Under a policy announced Thursday, the Motion Picture Assn. of America said its movie raters would take into account "depictions that glamorize smoking or movies that feature pervasive smoking outside of a historic or other mitigating context."

That makes smoking a major factor to be considered alongside violence, profanity, nudity and drug use by the MPAA's rating board, the Classification and Rating Administration, when deciding the warning parents will get.
The dumbing down of America is almost complete.
