Sorry for the folks in Haverstraw NY. Legislated by ostriches it would seem...

I love the fact when I clicked on the link...a tobacco add for Nat Sherman appeared...actually I don't know if I like that, because that's most likely a result of those damn tracking cookies :( !

But one of these days, these people will ban everything to death that there will no longer be a population due to starvation...I mean in NYC, among some other cities, there is a trans fat ban...I'm sure soft drinks and anything with any kind of sugar will be next.

Then, well...why not ban water...by drinking/using water, we may deplete the overall supply...

Damn, just as I said everything will be banned, up pops this article:

Display bans are the norm in BC here... all stores have to have the baccy behind curtains and doors so you can't see them... unless your store has a age limit of 19 years or older
