California City Bans All Tobacco and E-Cigarette Sales – Except for the Super-Rich
 Huston Warner Todd Huston May 25, 2019 1.4k Views
 

A city in left-wing California aims to become the first city in U.S. history to ban the sale of all tobacco products everywhere. Unless you are rich enough to join an exclusive cigar lounge.

Beverly Hills, California, is about to become the first city to ban the sale of tobacco products with an exception that would allow posh cigar lounges to remain in business, according to The Blaze.

The ordinance was passed by the city council on Tuesday to ban all sales of tobacco and e-cigarettes at all retailers.

Me personally?  Nothing.  I gave up the noxious weed ten years ago.

I remember when Del Mar, CA, banned cigarettes in restaurants in the early 70s.   

This is just a continuation of that.  It has been going on a long time.

Why haven't K-Cups been banned?  They are far worse than stupid straws.

California.  You love it or leave it.  I could never live there again.

"Kuerig Cup."  They cannot be recycled.  They are made to withstand high temperatures for individual coffee makers.  Very popular right now.

I refuse to use that particular brand.  Folger's Coffee Bags work just as well, and they can be recycled right into your garden.

WOW! Yuppies are willing to pay up to 300 bucks for a coffee pot that only brews 1 cup at a time?

How do those fools manage to get their hands on that kind of money?

I am utterly amazed how many folks live far beyond their means.
