Sleaze Summit Joins Kansas City Metro Smoke Out Tobacco Age Limit Increase To 21



Middle-class suburbanite freedom to enjoy cancer stix curtailed . . .

Tobacco 21 movement adds Lee's Summit

Deets:

"Lee's Summit became the latest city to pass a Tobacco 21 ordinance – prohibiting the sale and purchase of tobacco products, alternative nicotine products and vapor products to those under age 21 – following a city council vote Thursday. The ordinance takes effect Dec. 1 . . . Lee's Summit joins Independence and Kansas City, which approved ordinances late last year . . ."

Undoubtedly an important public health effort and another small win for the nanny state.

You decide . . .

They can just replace it with any number of abundant carcinogenic foods available for your ease and pleasure.

I highly recommend the Gulf of Mexico seafood with BP's secret sauce!

Age 21 for tobacco, any age for weed. People pay as much attention to these laws as they do gun control laws.

Further proof that being elected to public office makes you dumber than tree stumps. If 18-21 year olds are competent to vote, let them vote whether to ban sales of nicotine products to persons in their age group. If the purpose is to ban tar-nicotine products, there is no reason besides legislative arrogance to ban vaping products as well.

Well, as the kids say, "Who needs cigarettes when there is K-2 and pot at every school".
