A total abuse of power IMO.
As a non smoker, and an advocate of not smoking, I believe it to be a killer.
Yet to have a law in effect which fines a candy store from selling non tobacco candy (granted it 'looks' like a cigarette, as long as your more than 150 ft away), is unjust.

Geeze, we could buy 'em all the time when I was a kid. Never gave a second thought to it.

Why is it the 'do gooders' assume everyone is feeble brained and can't disaocciate plain candy from tobacco use?

Since they can't think for themselves, they presume everyone else is so afflicted?

Agreed. What is wrong with people? So many want to ban anything they donít like.

I remember buying them as a kid from the country grocery store when we got supples(sugar,cornmeal,flour,s alt & pepper and maybe some more canning jars) once/month. They lasted about as long as a pack does today for me.

PS: What's the difference between 'do gooders' and

OR as Bama Yankee said:

I remember eating those when I was a kid. It never enticed me to smoke and they weren't that tasty.

Yepper...They also want to ban Black Jack gum because kids pulling it over their teeth were insensitive to rednecks, and then there is that whole ILGA movement about Mike & Ike's...it's just another way of takin' candy from a baby..
