Fortuna Joins the Dark Side

Very disappointed to read in the Times- Standard of the City of Fortuna considering more smoking restrictions in their city. I'm not all that fond of Fortuna but felt it was run with a little more common sense than most other towns up here. I guess I was wrong.

So why are they going after the most rapidly declining minority in the country? I can only assume for the same reasons everyone else does: Because they can, and it's probably fun beating up on a group that is least able to defend themselves.

Easy, it costs less compared to going through consumer affairs and the fda to go after the producers of cigarettes, tobacco. Ya see, the sales will still create taxes and the business taxes still exist, so ya, it makes sense.

Is it fair in a public setting........yes and no.

For every restriction, should there be equally an allowance.........YES. If the government takes away a privilege, it needs to be held accountable to give back a privilege in exchange for a taking.

Why? To promote public health by preventing exposure to carcinogens. That's the only reason they need.

The more places I can take my kids without being acosted by vile smoke the better. Try to walk down main street past the playroom, you have to hold your breath for a whole block to get out of the cloud. I am glad to see them include e-cigs and 'vape,' the users of those products are usually the rudest and most entitled.

Politics using children to get results.

Notice Anonymous does not care for adults because adults really don't care until children become a tool.

By that logic, fossile fuels is a carcinogenic conspiracy fueled by you type consumers after carcinogenic creationists are allowed to poison you on behalf of your own government and Obamacate for tax collection motives.

Roses are red, violets are blue, carcinogenic smoke poisons the head, that you know too.

Next up, ban all fossile fuel vehicles wherever children go, including the school bus.

Anyone who doesn't already know that they are breathing, eating & drinking motor vehicle exhaust is not paying attention.
If motor vehicles were not constantly spewing toxins, there would be no need for an exhaust pipe that vents the poisonous gases to the rear of the car.
I wonder why these people aren't doing something that would really make a difference.
Perhaps they're just suffering from the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning.

They're attacking vapor because too many smokers have quit smoking, reducing the excise taxes California needs for paying back their bond.
Also, the foot soldiers, the ALA, are big pharma pimps. They assume that if people can't vape, they'll switch over to their master's smoking cessation products or go back to smoking. Win win for them. (chemo, gum, pills)
Plus, most cities receive special award bonuses for turning against their citizens liberties.
Fortunately, vapor is easy to do stealthily. Stealth vaping, the new naughty. Oh you rebellious patriots you!

This recent article shares why the vapers are the most rudest of all.
Tsk tsk.

Don't forget the methane gases either!

In Oregon, gas pump employees should sue the state for bei g exposed to carcinogenic fumes while pumping gas.

Instead of allowing motorists to be poisoned while pumping, employees of a gas station are forced into a test lab scenario without full bio hazzard protective equipment to protect health.

Americans can be such hipocrites and plaster saints in a country full of mirrors.

New bills at state level to raise smoking age to 21, passed Thursday.

Bill at governor moonbeams desk.

Bill at a time where smoking by 21 and under is at all time lows for recorded data.

Some say this is typical tactics - a bill when the private sector is already reducing impacts.

On a libertarian view, 18 is a legal adult, so wtf.
