Officials in Westminster, MA want to make it illegal to sell all tobacco products to anyone, including adults. Would you want this rule in your hometown?
Everyone should be free to choose, I hate the health nanny state with people like Michelle Obama.
Why don't they ask law enforcement from the 20s and 30s how prohibition worked for them.
Freedom hurts, doesn't it?
I'm all for choice, but I can't stand having to breath in smoke from other people smoking. My fiancé is worse, she's allergic to it and gets head aches
God no. Prohibition never works. It just makes criminals out of people and raises prices.
No more nanny state. Let people be stupid.
No I wouldn't alcohol causes more deaths
There's enough programs to show that smoking is unhealthy, that it's impossible to not get the message. If you don't like smoking, don't smoke.
Didn't we try prohibition once? Adults will, and should, make their own decisions...and then not whine and expect someone to bail them out if they chose wrongly
I'm against making it illegal, but I hate running through a cloud of smoke when I'm exercising. I can't breathe
I'm sure it'll end the use of tobacco in that town. Not.
what a great idea. just give the sorrounding counties tons of extra business...
Im okay with people ruining themselves long as they don't destroy others because of their choices. Plenty of people get cancer just from being around those who smoke.
I'd be much happier if tobacco would just disappear, but I that's not the way to achieve that.
We already tried it, almost a century ago. It was called "Prohibition", and it was as miserable a failure as was the more recent attempt, the "War on drugs". This nonsense would fail as well.
Heck yes, try walking outside, with any breathing problem, all you get is smoke, unless they have one of those smoke sheds,
Do I want it, yes.
Is it legal, no.
I'm the opposite.
Of course it's legal to regulate and ban commercial goods for moral reasons, but the city should not do so.
It's their body.
No. And that's a waste of resources to prosecute people.
No, but, don't rise any tobacco products
No they keep some people employed in the tobacco business and pay a lot of taxes. As long as they don't smoke near me I'm happy.
If "YOU'RE GOING TO DIE" isn't enough to deter people what's this going to do besides hurt business.
I wouldn't support it but it's hard for me to say no because I detest smoking so much. I'd be happy if there were no more smoking, but I'm not advocating a complete ban.
