MN: Store Busted for Selling Candy Cigarettes

Discussion in 'The Okie Corral' started by NorthCarolinaLiberty, Dec 27, 2012.

  1. The candy was banned by the city of St. Paul in 2009, especially citing a study of how the product leads to tobacco use.

    Robert Humphrey, spokesman for the city's Safety and Inspections Department, said this type of action is enforced on a "complaint basis" and "isn't taking time away from any major enforcement."

  2. What a bunch of moronic retards. I've been eating candy cigarettes for near 23 years now and never had the urge to smoke. I wonder if they enforce it online as well?

  4. It doesn't say anything about online. If you want to get into moronic, get a load of the language in the legislation.


    "One such study concluded that 22% of adults who had regularly consumed candy cigarettes were regular or former smokers,..."

    "Fire setting by juveniles has been identified as the fastest growing fire threat in the United States,..."

    "In 2008, the U.S. Fire Administration made banning novelty lighters the goal of Arson AwarenessWeek."

    "Examples of novelty lighters include, but are not limited to, lighters that resemble cartoon characters, toys, guns, watches, musical instruments, vehicles, toy animals, food or beverages, or that play musical notes or have flashing lights or other entertaining features."

    "No person shall sell or offer for sale any imitation tobacco product or novelty lighter within the city."

    C'mon, be fair guys. Minnesota gave you Harold Stasson, Hubert Humphrey, GOV jesse Ventura. You can't say we are not a bundle of laughs for a Democrat-Farm-Labor state.
