F.D.A. Bans Sale of Flavored Cigarettes

• NY Times
Federal health officials banned the sale of flavored cigarettes on Tuesday in the first major crackdown since the Food and Drug Administration was given the authority to regulate tobacco.
The ban is intended to end the sale of tobacco products with chocolate, vanilla, clove and other flavorings that lure children and teenagers into smoking. The agency will study regulating menthol products and hinted that it might soon take action against the far larger market of flavored small cigars and cigarillos.

Filthy God Damned Bastards treating adults as if we were children. The tree of liberty is getting mighty dry. Tobacco smoke is far less dangerous than government. This pendulum will swing the other way one of these days. We need to remember the names and addresses of the filth that oppress us so we can bring retribution on them when it swings the other way. Micromanagement is the identifying hallmark of the psychopath.
