Smoking and Jewish Law

The Rabbinical Council of America has come out with a P'sak Halacha (legal ruling) regarding smoking. And wouldn't you know it - our own R' Dovid Gottlieb is on this Va'ad Halacha. It's a must read, and you can link to it here.

Does that mean that the Rabbinical courts in Israel will come out for smoking, since they and the RCA don't seem to see eye to eye on things?

Haha, good one. Unfortunately, I'm sure that the right-wing chareidi world won't pay too much attention to the likes of R' Daniel Feldman and R' Gottlieb - although I could be wrong.
