SHOCK!!! THIS COULD BE THE END OF "BLUNT WRAPS" IN KANSAS CITY!!!
Here's some background on "Blunt Wraps" from the world's most accurate encyclopedia.
"Individually packaged Blunt leafs have been available for many years. These are tobacco leaves that because of their nature and appearance are used to roll a cigar in one continuous sheet (thus the name Blunt is used). The United States Tobacco Taxation Board has classified all individual cigar wrappers as "Blunts" and taxes them as roll-your-own tobacco. Many US States classify Blunt Wraps as tobacco and a license is required to sell them and collect tax. Canada defines a Blunt Wrap as "a sheet or tube made of tobacco used to roll cigarette tobacco in - similar to rolling paper". Use of these single continuous sheets is closer to the original Blunts of the 19th century since it is not a spiral wrap."
Now, the latest from Kansas City's "Nanny State" and mostly useless City Council.
THERE IS A CITY COUNCIL EFFORT TO OVER-REGULATE "BLUNT WRAPS" FROM KANSAS CITY'S WORST CONVENIENCE STORES!!!
Take a look at ordinance: 120818
Here's the ordinance language:
WHEREAS, the Council finds that blunt wraps are primarily used for the consumption of illegal drugs; and
WHEREAS, the Council finds that access to blunt wraps by minors contributes to their use of illegal drugs, including marijuana and synthetic drugs; and
WHEREAS, the Council desires to restrict access by minors to blunt wraps by prohibiting self-service sales of blunt wraps; and
WHEREAS, the Council of the City of Kansas City has determined that it is in the public interest, safety and welfare of the City of Kansas City to amend Chapter 50, Code of Ordinances, to prohibit customer access to blunt wraps prior to their sale to reduce the use by minors of illegal drugs; NOW, THEREFORE,
So . . .
KANSAS CITY IS NOW PUSHING MORE REGULATIONS TOBACCO PRODUCTS BECAUSE OF THEIR DRUG CULTURE AFFILIATION!!!
I don't smoke so it's not a big deal to me . . . But this is a great example of City Council solving a problem that didn't really exist and taking part in the never ending drug war.
