Tasmania To Ban Fag Sales
In a plan that is destined to fail (if it is enacted), and bring about a major increase in revenues for organised crime, Tasmanian Nanny is considering banning the sale of tobacco to anyone born after 2000.
ABC News reports that Legislative Council member Ivan Dean wants to make it illegal for people born after 2000 to buy tobacco once they turn 18 - meaning they would never legally be able to buy cigarettes.
The proposal was passed unanimously by the Upper House on Tuesday night.
Is it not an individual's right to decide what he or she chooses to put into their body?
Why does Nanny insist on trying to legislate about what we are allowed to eat, drink, smoke, snort etc?
Needless to say there are those who will come up with the "passive smoking" argument, yet far more damage is done to us by the passive ingestion of pollution (airborne and waterborne) from cars, lorries, factories etc etc.
I am sure that Nanny states around the world will be watching this with interest, and will be itching to do the same.
It is a bad/dangerous idea, and it is destined to fail. Yet Nanny never learns that banning things makes them ever more attractive.
