Pushing Back on Bans
There are towns, cities, counties (parishes) and even states, where extreme tobacco bans are proving to be less popular than expected. Over in the Stupid Bans thread, we see that Long Beach, California is sixteen years into its ban, and the city council is now realizing that they're marginalizing cigar and hookah smokers and have proposed to roll back the ban in tobacco shops.
Now, New Hampshire is realizing a similar predicament. An editorial in the Union Leader urges the legislature to approve a bill that would allow tobacconists to obtain liquor licenses so smokers can have a place to get a drink when they smoke.
