New York City Mayor Bloomberg Wants Cigarettes Out Of Sight
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is at it again trying to make his city healthier. First it was creating laws about large sodas, now he wants tobacco to be out of sight in stores throughout the ‘Big Apple.’ I guess a study shows that kids who don’t see cigarette displays are less likely to smoke.
My question is, has this gone too far? Are smokers supposed to know which stores sell if the smokes are concealed. I see it now. “Psst, got any butts?” I know he probably means well, but I think where it’s still a legal product, displays are okay. I’d like to see, for selfish reasons, advertising signs showing prices for tobacco products eliminated. That’s just because I’ve recently quit. The fewer the reminders the better.
Should we conceal ‘Kwikies’ and alcohol too? Those products aren’t the best for society either?
