Smoking Bans are Not About Health

Why are cities and businesses banning e-cig?  Simple.  Because you can’t ban smokers themselves.

Smoking bans aren’t about health.  The studies claiming a link between second hand smoke and cancer are bullshit.  This is not about health.  This is about signaling to “those people’ that they are not wanted.  Mansfield isn’t saying that there is a problem with e-cigs.  They are saying, “we don’t want the kind of person who uses an e-cig around.”

Smoking bans are about banning smokers, not smoke.

It’s class warfare, and it’s ugly.  E-cig opponents are bigots.

(Once you’ve internalized that one, it’s time to realize that gun bans are about outlawing gun owners, not guns.)
