Flavored Tobaccos (Incl. CLOVES) are ILLEGAL to sell as of Sept 1st

As of September 1, it won’t be illegal to possess flavored cigarettes, but it will be illegal to sell them. As a result, clove cigarettes, which have been imported from Indonesia and sold in the U.S. since 1968, and cigarettes flavors like cherry and chocolate mocha are about to become a controlled substance.

Philip-Morris—the tobacco giant who controls fully half of the U.S. cigarette market share—had its tarry hands all over the passage of this legislation.

Great alternative available

I smoked for about 24 years. As a result I had a cronic smokers cough and would wake up wheezing in the middle of the night (some part is due to mild asthma but not all). I just started "vaping" (AKA e-ciggs) 7 weeks ago. My cough is completely gone and I sleep soundly through the night. I think I had one asthma attack in almost 2 months. Anyone who is still smoking dried vegetable matter (the brown kind) should absolutely consider switching. Not only is it vastly better for your health but it costs less than half what tobacco does now. And speaking of the price of tobacco, as we all know, the lions share of what you pay goes to taxes. Switching to vaping is a very effective method of taking your money out of uncle sam's pocket and putting it back in yours where it belongs. Oh yeah, almost forgot, it doesn't stink and you can partake in public without offending anyone or violating any ordinances.

Illegal to possess?

To clarify, it will not be illegal to possess but sell. I am very bothered by this even as a non-smoker.

I suppose flavored cigars are next? Might as well make blunt wraps paper flavored too, we wouldn't want to make weed more enticing...
