“Smoke Nazi” Bloomberg raises the smoking age to 21


NEW York’s controversial Mayor Mike Bloomberg has caused outrage yet again – by green lighting a move to increase the city’s smoking age to 21.

The Mayor, who was also responsible for introducing the hated ban on smoking in pubs and restaurants in New York, was unrepentant, claiming it was a vital measure.

His City Council approved the legislation 35 to 10, with the Council’s four Republicans voting no. The legislation will take effect 180 days after Bloomberg signs it.

“We know that tobacco dependence can begin very soon after a young person first tries smoking, so it’s critical that we stop young people from smoking before they ever start,” Bloomberg said in a statement released after the vote.

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the
    internet the simplest thing to be aware of. I say
    to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that
    they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole
    thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
