The whole place is in an uproar. A few well-meaning ‘Nanny-State’ supporters have placed the whole outfit on a collision course with Big Tobacco by planning to ban All Tobacco Products from sale in any store, bar or any commercial outfit in Westminster.
Obviously, it ain’t our Westminster, its the one in Massachusetts, and the local Board of Health smeaked in preparations to outlaw all smoking substances, all the things which some people want to enjoy, even though they know the risks.
But the good Board of Health members forgot one teensy-weensie little item when they proposed this ban; they forgot that this is Small-town America; and no-one tells Americans what to eat, smoke or even chew: no-one that is, who wants to keep their seats on that same Westminster Board of Health!
Where Westminster goes, hopefully lots of others might just stand up and follow.
