NYC bans sale of tobacco products to under-21-year-olds, but not bongs and other dope paraphernalia. Alcohol and tobacco no, marijuana si!

  1. Smokers Segregation Movement?

  2. Brings to mind an old joke: A drunk, a tripper and a pothead are walking along when they come upon a cabin in the woods. They discover the door is locked. The drunk says “let’s break down the door.” The tripper says “no way man, let’s just float through the keyhole.” The pothead says “c’mon man, we can’t float through keyholes; let’s just wait till someone comes and opens it for us.”

      You left out a fourth possibility, which is to merge and mesh with the molecules and pass trough the wall, much as Superman learns to do at 12:15 of this “Mysterious Cube” episode, and actually performs at 24:05. This episode also features a lot of Lefty Louie, who in all appearances is an identical twin to former Stamford Mayor Louis A. Claps.

    I think that’s fantastic! I’m not sure on your take on this but the only reason you wouldn’t support this is if you worked for the tabacco industry.

    • Well no, that’s not it; if 18-year0-olds are deemed to immature to make a decision whether to smoke tobacco, they are also incapable of deciding whether to alter and evade reality by ingesting another, far more powerful mind-altering drug. As a libertarian, I figure people of a certain age: 18, perhaps 21, whatever – should be pretty much free to do whatever damn fool thing they wish, but I’m offended by a government picking winners and losers among the drugs available – heroin no, oxycontin yes? Tobacco no, super-strength marijuana yes? Give me a break.

        At eighteen you are old enough to go to Afghanistan and die for your country (‘s agenda which includes protecting the poppy fields), then you are old enough to smoke, and drink I might add. So what’s next? Will eighteen year old soldiers sitting in their foxholes be prohibited from smoking? If we want to make sure that none of them die prematurely, that answer should be a resounding yes!

        I hate smoking as much as anyone….but I agree, if 18 yrs can vote and fight, then they can smoke and drink. I really think our misguided attempts to prohibit our kids on these two fronts, particularly alcohol, has pushed kids further into drugs and other dangerous hidden drinking routines.

          You’d be right too.

      Fantastic? You can’t smoke what you want but you can die for your country. What are you smokin’ chick? Although part of me does agree with you since we are now all paying for the healthcare…

    Remember back in the sixties when you could smoke at the office? Lot’s of people did, and no one thought much about it — no one seemed to care. But now people begin to cough even when someone lights a cigarette outdoors, twenty feet downwind, like a hypnotically planted, subconscious trigger.

    This was at about the same time (1966) that the government commissioned “Report from Iron Mountain” looked for alternatives, other ways than war, to keep citizens loyal to government and make sacrifices towards its agenda of enslavement, and came up with the idea of controlling people through environmental protection, without which the certain destruction and end of life on the planet would occur. Whether or not what was presented to the public was factual or not was immaterial; what was important was could it be made believable.

    In my opinion, the anti-smoking movement was the spearhead of this movement and brainwashing on a grand scale. In addition to all of the above, it had also been one of Hitler’s earliest actions in control of the masses.

    “A wealth of overlooked yet frightening literature concerning the Nazi crusade against smoking provides a clear parallel to contemporary developments and an alarming warning that state restriction of personal habits is the pre-cursor to dictatorship.

    Beginning in the early 1930’s, as part of the Nazi agenda for racial purity, Hitler spearheaded a national campaign to ban smoking in all public buildings, and denounced the practice as a betrayal of the fascist drive for bodily purity.

    “Brother national socialist, do you know that our Führer is against smoking and think that every German is responsible to the whole people for all his deeds and emissions, and does not have the right to damage his body with drugs?” stated one magazine. …”

    Did you know that the WHO’s first study of second had smoke “found no statistically significant risk existed for non-smokers who either lived or worked with smokers.” and that “The only statistically significant number was a decrease in the risk of lung cancer among the children of smokers.”

    “The World Health Organization’s first study on SHS is a textbook example of the right way to conduct an epidemiological study. Unfortunately for them, it yielded unexpected results. They responded by doing a second one, a meta-analysis, that allowed them to extract the results they wanted.”

  5. the good news is that, under ACA, smoking is a pre-existing condition. So, until the government establishes rules, regulations and penalties within the new Department of Lifestyle Guidance, enjoy.

    In Austin, Texas, police are arresting people for smoking while walking down the sidewalk. To impatient to wait for someone caught smoking, undercover cops are out offering cigarettes to people and asking them if they need a light.
