Demonizing the Leaf

Lubbock, Texas is poised to become a history maker. The city council may install a city-wide smoking ban that would be the strictest measure of its kind in the entire state.

In addition to bars and restaurants, the measure would also prohibit smoking inside personal vehicles and some residences. The ban includes all tobacco products, as well as e-cigarettes.

Citizens of Texas and elsewhere, take heed! Do not sit idly by and let your misguided lawmakers impose a nanny-state — one ordinance at a time. Do not let them set precedents that will systematically remove your rights one by the one. Do not let your civil liberties go up in smoke!

Write and call your members of Congress… and let your voice be heard at the voting polls!
