Candy cigarettes outlawed in Minnesota

I think the best part of this is the Facebooker’s comment:

“I just got through a bag of gummy bears. Now I can’t stop thinking about where to find a REAL bear to eat!”

Hysteria.

Daily Caller reports on this important and much needed anti-candy legislation:

In an effort to stop youngsters from picking up a tobacco habit, city inspectors have ordered as small Minnesota soda shop to stop selling its popular candy cigarettes and bubblegum cigars.

According to the Star Tribune, Lynden’s Soda Fountain pulled the fake smokes after officials said the store would face a misdemeanor citation and a $500 fine for noncompliance.

A 2009 city ordinance bans the sale of imitation tobacco items to children.
