Poop And Hypo Laden San Francisco Looks To Ban Sale Of E-Cigarettes

Sure, why not

OK

San Francisco is on the verge of outlawing the sale, manufacture, and distribution of e-cigarettes within the city. City supervisors voted unanimously to approve the ordinance to update the city’s health code. The ordinance is set for a final vote next week and is expected to pass, which would make San Fransisco the first major city in the country to ban e-cigarettes.

City officials say that they are trying to curb the “growing health epidemic of youth vaping.”

“This is about thinking about the next generation of users and thinking about protecting the overall health and sending a message to the rest of the state and the country: Follow our lead,” Supervisor Ahsha Safaí said.

Do these Modern Socialists realize that this will cause businesses in SF to close/relocate? Daly City, Brisbane, Oakland, Sausalito, etc. Further, the city idiots can’t stop the Internet. You can order from one of my favorites, myfreedomsmokes.com (have a great coffee flavor). Or plenty of others. Oh, wait, they want to interfere with lawful interstate commerce (from the “outlawing” link)

Under the proposed law, residents would not be able to buy e-cigarettes in San Francisco stores or receive online orders to addresses in the city until the U.S. Food and Drug Administration reviews the products.

The first would be lawful. The latter would not. The product is legal in the state of California at this time, and, if you want to consider that the state has said that even cities that ban the sale of marijuana within their jurisdictions cannot block the delivery as one reason, well, there you go. Further, SF would have no legal authority to block a lawful order, nor UPS, USPS, or FedEx. If they want a quick, painful monetarily lawsuit, go for it.

      Isn’t this where John jumps in and gives us a commercial about how progressive and successful CA is and how along with NY carry all us deplorables across the fruited plain with their taxes and good intentions alone? Of course he conveniently forgets who provides the military and the muscle of our country. For some reason leftists just can’t admit they are citizens of the same country as we lowly plebs. They are just too, too good for us fly over folk.

      Here’s a little ditty on CA. It’s 14 min but it’s worth it lots of ammo. (Which CA won’t have soon).\

    Because, after all, it’s just so much healthier to have them smoking actual cigarettes!

    If they’re so concerned about health, wouldn’t it have made more sense to ban real cigarettes, and allow ‘vaping’ to continue for those addicted to nicotine?

    Alcoholic beverages are a deadly toxin, killing thousands, and ruining the health of millions, but the Pyrite State would never consider banning alcohol — something any state can do under Section 2 of the 21st Amendment — because the state makes so much money not only in taxes on alcohol, but in the production of commercials encouraging alcohol sales.

    Marijuana has some poor health effects, but lawmakers legalized it.

    California legalized physician assisted suicide, which had fatal health effects.

    Hollywood glorifies violence and death, and the state makes a ton of money off of it, and wouldn’t dream of curtailing it.

    And, of course, state lawmakers want abortion legalized up to the point of birth; that’s OK with them.

    But vaping? Hoo, boy, now that’s a step too far.

      Dana,

      The concern is that children get addicted to nicotine via these strawberry, chocolate, mint, caramel etc devices and then switch over to tobacco. And it’s still not clear that even vaping is safe.

      Why not remove all the restrictions on oral or transdermal opioids so that kids can get addicted to them. They’re safer than heroin. We’ll hope they never switch to heroin +/- fentanyl.

      Are you really in favor of banning cigarettes?

      • david7134 says:

        Jeff,
        I seriously doubt that the flavor you allude to would be so attractive. I would presume that if the liberals are getting rid of vaping then they likely have been paid to do so by the tobacco companies, much as they do with most political activities. Then, how did you make a leap from tobacco to opiates? That really sounds dumb. After 50 years in medicine, I don’t think the government should ban anything. If you want to smoke and know the risk, go for it. Same with alcohol. In fact, I would say that we would be much better off with de-regulation of all drugs, just establishing quality. I have many reasons for this attitude, the biggest is that about 50% of the patients in my indigent hospital are there because of illicit drugs and the fact they are getting contaminated product and unknown or doubtful quality. The harshest drug laws on the planet (ours) have not stopped the use of drugs, so allow those of us that might need the medicines to get them without interference (which is not working). As to your children, that is your problem not the governments. I might add that the drugs that are commonly available across the counter carry significant health problems and that opiates may be safer, note the may be as this can bring out a discussion in itself and don’t get yourself pumped up likely you usually do.

        By the way, have you ever come up with a definition for existential? Didn’t think so.

          davy,

          Look it up!

          • david7134 says:

            Jeff,
            I know the meaning of the word. You don’t which means you were trying to look like you had smarts, when you dont. I’m fact, you are one of the dumbest people in have fun up against.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            davy,

            So what are you bellyaching about?

            Did I use the word incorrectly? Nope.

            davy typed: “I’m fact, you are one of the dumbest people in have fun up against.”

            Can you diagram your sentence?

          • david7134 says:

            Jeff,
            You used a word and have no knowledge of its meaning. Then fun is run, dumbass, that is a word you know.

          • Professor Elwood Dowd says:

            davy,

            But I used the word correctly. How did I do that not knowing what it meant?

            You Cons just love to bicker about nothing.

            tRump is a threat to the existence of the US.

            Feel better now?

            Say good-night, Gracie.

    They say nicotine is a gateway drug
    For over 90% of the people nicotine was there first recreational drug
    Many begin like Porter in their teens and are. Ever able to break their addiction
    Many also continue on to other drugs as they search for that “high”

    • Professor Hale says:

      This is a common assertion, but hard to prove. What is more likely is that self destructive people, have a handful of self-destructive tendencies. They all seem to go together. No gateway needed because the user is only awaiting the opportunity to try it out. The logical fallacy that because one happens first, that the first one leads to the second is common in epidemiology.

      Examples: The pool of people who smoke cigarettes has a high overlap with people who abuse alcohol, people who have unprotected sex with strangers, people who smoke weed, and people who don’t wear seatbelts or put their kids in car seats.
