Last week I saw a report about flavored tobacco potentially being banned as a result of a new law passed by congress. I wasn’t sure if I was overexaggerating or being my normal paranoid self but I wasn’t. President Barack Obama signed the “Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act” into law this week and as a result, there will be no more flavored tobacco (except menthol). This includes all of your cigars that you use to twist up blunts. Smoking will never be the same.
Here is the part of the bill that mainly concerns weed smokers….
“A cigarette or any of its component parts (including the tobacco, filter, or paper) shall not contain, as a constituent (including a smoke constituent) or additive, an artificial or natural flavor (other than tobacco or menthol) or an herb or spice, including strawberry, grape, orange, clove, cinnamon, pineapple, vanilla, coconut, licorice, cocoa, chocolate, cherry, or coffee, that is a characterizing flavor of the tobacco product or tobacco smoke.”
I suppose Barack is doing a decent job. I am sure he is doing the best he can but this is crazy. First he flips the script on legalization and now he is taking away my vanilla dutches. He is definitely NOT stoner approved.
Shout outs to Spark Report for updating me on this one.
