Firestorm Erupts in Anti-Smoking Massachusetts Town - November 18, 2014, 08:58 AM

A hearing on Wednesday with the Westminster Board of Health to ban the sale of all tobacco products became so unruly that the board chairwoman could not maintain order; she shut down the hearing 20 minutes after it began, and was escorted out under police protection.

Tobacco is serious business.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

So, it sounds like the number of folks protesting the proposed ban were far greater than the 17% who smoke.

Refreshing to see folks understand the principles involved, right-on Westminster. Ask not for whom the bell tolls...

If they want to be intellectually honest, they would need to ban ALL tobacco products.
That would have to include things like Flavorings, Colognes and Perfumes, ... , ....
