Cancer Society At It Again
The local nanny- staters at the American Cancer Society are at it again. This time they want to stop a new business from opening in Arcata- that business being a lounge of sorts where people smoke tobacco using hookas (water pipes).
I can't say much about the business idea. I've never been impressed with water pipes. I've never used them for tobacco but did use them a few times for pot back in my younger days. I wasn't impressed. I guess it might have seemed cool, though.
The Cancer Society needs to back off. This isn't even a business involving other things that just allows smoking. It's a business in which the main attraction is smoking. I have no problem with the Cancer Society's spreading the word about the dangers of smoking but, should people choose to smoke anyway, the Cancer Society should leave them alone.
