I Wonder Why My Doctor’s Office Only Asks about Cigarette Smoking?

When I did my recent physical one of the questions the nurses asked was if I smoke cigarettes.  It wasn’t smoking in general, just cigarettes.  I asked her how about the people who smoke weed or vape or even cigars.  She told me she doesn’t get it either but the form mentions cigarettes.

    Those forms haven’t been updated in ages so that’s why weed and vaping isn’t on the list. 

    Back in the 80s before homosexuality became widespread, it didn’t ask what your sexual orientation is. Now it asks whether your homosexual, heterosexual, or bisexual.
