I am also questioning the need for both teeth and dentistry. –  Sam I Am Jan 8 '13 at 20:35
    
@SamIAm can you make a separate answer for each tag so the community can discuss them? at the moment it's not clear what the consensus is :-) –  Ebenezer Sklivvze Jan 12 '13 at 11:04
    
@Sklivvz done... –  Sam I Am Jan 13 '13 at 23:11

actually this might fail, if users agree or disagree with many of the answers, the serial voting script might kick in. meta.stackexchange.com/q/150180/203115 –  Ryathal Jan 14 '13 at 16:04

we have [heart-attack], maybe we can make a more generic [cardiology] tag? or even [heart-disease]? (done)

cardiology would be consistent –  Ebenezer Sklivvze Jan 14 '13 at 20:24
    
I tagged a question with cardiology so now it exists. –  Sam I Am Jan 21 '13 at 15:34

Bicycles, trucks, or trains, are vehicles too. –  gerrit Jan 17 '13 at 13:58
    
Swap that synonym. [vehicle] is more general and international. Or go with 'automobile' –  freiheit Jan 20 '13 at 19:01
    
@gerrit then maybe we should just retag all the vehicle questions with the correct type of vehicle. :) –  Sam I Am Jan 21 '13 at 15:36

I suggest keeping for prescribed medications and keeping for illicit drugs.

is more specific than so this one should go the other way.

is not a synonym of U.S. it should be left alone or just removed from the one question and possibly recreated if a larger amount of questions are asked in the future.

seems to be used responsibly and classifies the handful of questions better than alcohol would

should be the master tag not

seems a bit to general for the current questions, might be better. I would hesitate to generalize too far when there aren't really any general questions that would benefit.

For the drug tags perhaps merge into and leave . I think we should have separate tags for legal prescription medication questions and illicit drug use.

Of course congress isn't a a synonym of united-states but it is being used in lieu of united-states when that is the more appropriate tag to use. Maybe it is just a few mistagged questions. I remember retagging a few of them, a while ago, but looks like it is currently being used only once. –  Sam I Am Jan 8 '13 at 20:18
    
I don't feel there is much of a value of having both beer and alcohol, as well as having wine, vodka, rum, cider, ... –  Sam I Am Jan 8 '13 at 20:22
    
    
having beer as a separate entity doesn't mean every other alcohol needs their own tag, its alright to have a popular subsection have its own tag and have a general category tag –  Ryathal Jan 8 '13 at 20:54
    
@SamIAm I suppose cardiology would be ok, even though 2/5 of your examples would fit under heart-attack :) –  Ryathal Jan 8 '13 at 21:22
    
I'm only going by precedence here. We have dentistry, psychiatry, ophthalmology, neurology, dermatology, etc... :) –  Sam I Am Jan 11 '13 at 7:32
