Put That In Your Pipe

Leave it to the City Council to not see things all the way through.

Last week, City Council members voted to raise the age for buying tobacco and e-cigarettes from 18-21 – without bothering to restrict the sale of pipes and bongs.

The irony of the City law is that young adults may not be able to puff away on cigarettes, but can still purchase smoking pipes, most popularly used for marijuana.

The anti-smoking legislation, part of the City’s ongoing “War on Big Tobacco,” is supposed to keep kids from getting hooked to the bad habit. But according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, more teens smoke pot then cigarettes.
