Newly drafted tobacco bills leaked by the Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association (CASAA) reveal NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg’s plan to wage war on electronic cigarettes.

If the ordinances were to be executed, the display of smokeless tobacco and e-cigarettes would be prohibited in retail stores and would require 21 years of age to acquire.

The bills, which were drafted by the Health Department at the request of Mayor Bloomberg, define electronic cigarettes, their parts and accessories as tobacco products.

Tobacco and menthol flavored e-cigarettes would still be available in retail stores, while all other flavors must be sold at age-restricted tobacco bars.

Since Dec. 31, 2001 NYC law has prohibited any new tobacco bars from operating.

Michael Bloomberg relentlessly continues his nannying by attempting to executively rule over the behaviors of NYC businesses and consumers.

Bloomberg’s attempt to prohibit the sale and consumption of large sugary soft-drinks recently was shot down by a state appeals court.

Even though the court found Bloomberg’s effort to ban large soft drinks in NYC unconstitutional, the state is still pushing for the law's passage.

Nanny Mike has vowed to decided what is best for other people through the use of force his position as mayor illegitimately grants him until he is replaced as mayor at the end of the year.
