You guys still can't spell and think you're going to rally people together to protest a hookah bar?

The mayor is an idiot that is a sure bet, but you guys are acting silly.

Thank you for replying to "sour grapes."

Here is some additional information on the dangers of HOOKAH smoking, please read.

IT IS THE TIME TO GET REAL FOLKS, WE WILL NOT LET THE MAYOR OR THE HOOKAH BAR OWNER DISREGARD OR DISRESPECT THE RESIDENTS OF JUSTICE.

HOOKAH SMOKING IS! DANGEROUS.

Eventually the taxpayer ends up footing the bill for medical treatment that could have been avoided had the public been warned about the health hazards of some businesses, in this case HOOKAH BARS.

Further more, in an era when parents are trying to be role models to their kids, up pops up the head of the DEATHLY HOOKAH serpent with our local official’s benediction.

The argument that proponents of HOOKAH bars use, is that it is legal, so they have no problem enticing youngster to this very dangerous and unhealthy habit. However, there is no law against poking yourself in the eye either, but if you see some child doing it or attempting to do it, I am sure, that you will warn if not stop that child from hurting himself or herself.

In addition, I see nothing wrong with warning the public about health issues, since our village politicians are not interested in doing it, especially those issues concerning young people.

Further more, as you very well know, the village politicians only concern is themselves as they are trying to connive their way out of a financial hole that they got themselves in to.

Health Effects from the CDC.gov

Hookah Smoke and Cancer

The charcoal used to heat tobacco in the hookah increases the health risks by producing high levels of carbon monoxide, metals, and cancer-causing chemicals.1,4
Even after it has passed through water, the smoke produced by a hookah contains high levels of toxic compounds, including carbon monoxide, heavy metals, and cancer-causing chemicals.4
Hookah tobacco and smoke contain numerous toxic substances known to cause lung, bladder, and ORAL CANCERS.

Irritation from exposure to tobacco juices increases the risk of developing oral cancers. The irritation by tobacco juice products is likely to be greater among hookah smokers than among pipe or cigar smokers because hookah smoking is typically practiced (with or without inhalation) more often and for longer periods of time.
