Expect cigarette sting operations to be in full swing in the peoples republic of Ann Arbor this winter

Got-A-SmokeOne thing that the Democrats are good at, is ‘Nanny Statism’

If in any particular form it poses a health risk, you better damned well believe it can fall under a federal mandate, state law or local ordinance.  Democrats, progressives, and big-government little-minds know what is best for you.  Even if they can hardly manage their own lives, its for your own good.

So it comes as no surprise that Ann Arbor, bastion of elitist progressive nincompoopery has decided that unless you have obtained the age of 21, you cannot buy smokes in their little Utopian safe-space paradise. From Cap-Con:

“The Ann Arbor City Council last week voted for an ordinance that will ban the sale of tobacco products to people under 21, making it the first city in Michigan to raise the legal purchasing age from 18.”

So, has Ann Arbor made the statement that its population does not mature quickly enough to make such decisions?

Next up, no recruiting by the military of anyone under 25?

Oh..

UPDATE: as you can see, State Rep. Margaret O’Brien has pulled her nanny state propaganda video from the Michigan House GOP YouTube account.

JHFC! Is there anything these authoritarian Nanny Government types don’t want control over?

As an aside to all the 18 to 21-year-old voters out there stuck with your Zero Tolerance driver license situation – especially when they’re now regulating rope – why you haven’t voted out the mentality above is way beyond my comprehension.
