Bloomberg’s at it Again: Electronic Cigarettes in the Crosshairs

by Paul Lawrance, Activist Post

Newly drafted tobacco bills leaked by the Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association (CASAA) reveal NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg’s plan to wage war on electronic cigarettes.

If the ordinances were to be executed, the display of smokeless tobacco and e-cigarettes would be prohibited in retail stores and would require 21 years of age to acquire.

The bills, which were drafted by the Health Department at the request of Mayor Bloomberg, define electronic cigarettes, their parts and accessories as tobacco products.

Tobacco and menthol flavored e-cigarettes would still be available in retail stores, while all other flavors must be sold at age-restricted tobacco bars.

    Bloomberg is what happens when a billionaire doesn’t get that same thrill from just having all that money and the power it brings.

    They get weird and want to start imposing their will on others and a billionaire has a lot of $$$, er will, to impose. He can buy himself changes in election law so he can keep running for mayor even though that was not the intent of the citizens.

    Nanny Bloomberg is just an egomaniac run amock. I am disappointed in the supposedly tough & independent new yorkers that they put up with him & keep voting him in.

    He definitely qualifies for psychological testing….he is pissed off at the world and nobody knows why…but he is hell bent on beating the shit out of it before it takes him down….
