According to NBC News, “A small town in Massachusetts has become the latest battleground against Big Tobacco. Residents of Westminster will get the chance Wednesday night to debate a health board proposal to ban the sale of all tobacco and nicotine products — potentially making it the first community in the country to snuff out everything from e-cigarettes to flavored cigars. But while public health groups are lauding the proposal, smokers, their advocates and shopkeepers alike are fuming.”
Personally I’m not sure that I agree banning tobacco is the true path to fixing the problem. Just as the alcohol industry about how Prohibition worked out. But it’s interesting that there are enough people in a town that recognize tobacco as the problem that it is that it’s gotten this far.
