    Another mindless move by our politicians.

    There is a charm about the forbidden that makes it unspeakably desirable. Mark Twain

    “Very few people are focusing on the potential damage this ill-conceived and hastily assembled homage to the ability of bureaucrats to conceive of all manner of problems where problems don't exist then apply solutions to those problems that only create new problems without solving the original problems at all will bring to many sectors.

    It always starts in fucking kalifornia and then spreads to the rest of the country. Vaping is a legal product, they have no right to ban it from stores.

    It does seem that many teenagers are into vaping and 'juuling'. Which is nothing but the NATURAL result of the war on tobacco: they just find something else to try, especially since vaping has been touted, even by 'experts', as healthy and non-tobacco.

    They'll have a much harder time suppressing Vaping. Unlike tobacco, the constituents
    of Vaping liquid are cheap and easy to find and once you've bought them it's easy to
    brew up a very large quantity of liquid to your taste that will last a very long time.
    It must take years for a smoker to create a substantial cellar but a vaper could create
    his in a month or two or maybe even less.

    A modest proposal: since it's always "for the children" why don't we ban children from public places where adults are enjoying our fucking pipes? And politicians. Yes, let's not forget the politicians.

    It's so much easier to blame the politician than the voter. We elect them, over and over. Then we blame them for doing what the electorate wants. If you don't like the situation, check 'em out before you vote. For those "one issue" voters among us ... well, you're SOL these days. No one is going to run on the issue of "two pipes in every den or man cave" or "free tobacco products and free health care." What happens simply isn't worth the angst.

    A man without a shillelagh is a man without an expedient.

    I promise. I'm not getting into a political discussion!

    The voters are getting exactly what they want. It just so happens I don't agree with the majority.

    The California Assembly consists of 61 Democrats and 19 Republicans. The Senate has 28 Democrats and 10 Republicans. I live in one of the last bastions of conservativism in the state. But there's not enough of us to make a difference. And it won't change anytime soon. We can't vote out (or vote in) the ideology we want because Los Angeles, San Francisco and Sacramento are so big, they overwhelm the rest of the state.

    So. I have to grin and bear it until the time of my retirement (have a good job and parents are still alive). Then I will move out of the state I've lived my entire life to get some peace from the madness. Until then, I will put up with no vaping but a marijuana dispensary on every corner! And my pipes will be not be seen in the public domain, lest I get fined or arrested.

    Had to get that out of my system. I won't make further comments about California politics.

    I would like to know what this means for cased and topped pipe tobacco, but the reporting covers next to nothing as usual.

    Yep, you can get high as a kite but you can't smoke your pipe in public.
