MASS: Town may become the first US city to ban tobacco sales

While this MA town may become the first US town to ban tobacco sales in the 21st century, this would'nt be the first time a city or state banned tobacco sales of any kind period in USA history.   Some states actually banned cigarette sales in the 1900s-1910s era.  Of course, those bans eventually got lifted by the 20s.

This blog is still getting a decent amount of hits

I'm a lil bit surprised my blog is still averaging 15-17 hits per day despite me not posting in here as much as I did in the past.  Oh, I still smoke (and I'm still not interested in quitting one of life's greatest pleasures).  I used to smoke various brands to try em and for my smoking fetish.  Like I smoked ML''s in the past partly because ML's were a popular brand for sexy smokey chicks in my college days.  BH Golds actually taste like a stronger version of ML's to me.

I wouldnt mind trying different brands if cigs werent so high in price in modern times.  Because of that, I only smoke the brands I like the taste of the most.  Maybe I'll try a pack of Reds 100s again one day since I think of Nicole on the Smoking Ladies Board when I hear Red 100s.  But I'm happy with BH Golds if I ever want a non-menthol pack.

Benson and Hedges Menthols

Benson and Hedges Menthols taste a lot more like the older BHs from the pre-FSC days.  Not as strong as a Newpoort but has a nice menthol taste.  I prefer BHs in the box.  I'm not really a fan of soft pack cigs.  When a soft pack of cigs gets low, then the few cigs inside can get crushed a lot more easier..

I dont even remember the last time I saw someone with a soft pack outside.

The one negative about the sexy all-white BHs is they cost more than Newports and Marlboros.  The higher price is worth it to me for someone who wants to treat BHs as an alternative brand to smoke occasionally.

NYC cops choke man to death for selling untaxed cigs, despite him being cig-free at the confrontation

It's sad to hear this man lost his life over nothing.  Especially since he never had cigs on him or in his car when the NYC cops confronted him.

Since ballparks are smoke-free, being outside of Wrigley still has lots of smokey chick sightings

The smoking rate of US adults would be much more than 20 percent if it was based on the amount of people I saw smoking outside of Wrigley Field,  When I went to a Cub game last weekend

I saw LOTS of ladies smoking cigs outside of Wrigley today. Most were smoking all-whites that smelled like MLs to me. It's hard to get a look at the cig when some ladies take fast drags. But I definitely didnt smell any menthol smoke from anyone outside. Except for two men asking me for a light so they could light up their Newports.

One lady was wearing shades and she had a slim cig dangling in her mouth while walking past me. It certainly looked like an all white 120 baby she was dangling since her cig is longer than my Newport 100s.

The US adult smoking rate is low? I find it hard to believe the smoking rate in Chicago alone is the lowest in IL (based on how many people I saw with cigs at the Cub game). Unless most of the Chicago smokers are Cub fans. lol I felt like I was outside in downtown Chicago in 1994 instead of outside of Wrigley in 2014!

I thought I'd be lucky to find a lady being a bad girl in Wrigley itself by sneaking a smoke like on one of the ramps or the patio the Cubs have. So I can join her instead of stepping outside for a few mins. But the Cubs got no smoking signs all over the place (including on the patio). I was disappointed to see they even have smoke cops on their patio to catch anyone smoking. And to catch intoxicated fans getting violent of course...

For the record, I saw nobody with e-cigs in Wrigleyville.

Teen smoking girls article

I found an article about some teen smoking girls. LINK TO PAGE I doubt a modern newspaper would interview teen girls who enjoy smoking or a mom who is glad to give em cigs. I woukdnt even rule out the idea of girls starting a few years younger than 13. And of course, there are teen girls who smoke both cigs and weed.

PM hopes their smokeless cig will be "the cig of the future." LOL

Philip Morris International has spent $650 million in the past three years — and is ramping up spending by $100 million a year — to launch a volley of next-generation cigarettes at a market of smokers who have thus far mostly taken a pass on e-cigarettes. The objective is to produce something that looks like a cigarette, tastes like a cigarette and satisfies smokers’ craving for nicotine and oral stimulation without all the side effects of burning tobacco. PMI plans to launch the first such device, which it now calls Platform One, later this year or early 2015 in a country yet to be named. It’s an updated version of technology that has been around a long time, which heats tobacco to around 400 degrees Fahrenheit instead of the peak of 1,600 degrees during a long, satisfying draw on a conventional cigarette. After that it plans to introduce a different version with a glowing tip that is separated from the tobacco, and a pair of products that create nicotine vapor. CLICK HERE for full article page.

OT: For visitors looking to advertise sites and make money online

I used to have some ecig banners.  I'd love the idea of posting some smoke shop banner.  But thanks to Obama, the days of buying cartons online ended in 2010 with the PACT Act.  You can still buy cigs from the international-based online smoke shops.  But I never tried buying cartons from them.  I heard some of those shops are actually scammers.

The banners I placed on my blog may be off-topic.  But for a reader who's interested in looking for an advertising site (where you can post/share ads of ANY product, including e-cig ads), you can check out My Advertising Pays.

Pic of a leather lady with a cig

I dont post pics on here often.  But I cant resist sharing this one with a hot smokey lady with some leather.  I wish I knew the brand of the cig she's holding.  I looked at the cig closely but I cant see the brand's name on it.

Walgreens will continue to sell tobacco products, some small good news

Walgreens will NOT join CVS in banning tobacco sales.  It's pleasant to hear Walgreens believes in respecting and accommodating ALL of their customers.   I even heard this store still sells tobacco pipes.  I remember seeing lots of pipes being displayed in a Walgreeens during the 80s.

CVS will stop selling tobacco products (including cigs of course)

CVS decided to drop selling cigs and tobacco products in all of their stores as of October 2014.

The media says this decision will make CVS lose at least 2 billion bucks in revenues per year.  But I never bought cigs from CVS anyway.  Feel free to discontinue selling em CVS.  At least Walgreens believes in accommodating ALL of their customers (even with having their own clinics) by still selling cigs.

I agree its hypocritical to drop cigs but not liquor if CVS is really concerned about having clinics in their stores.  If they really concerned about getting rid of products that can affect their customers' health, they need to take the liquor off of their shelves as well.  And all of those candy bars I've seen in an aisle once.

Will Walgreens discontinue selling tobacco products?  At the time of this post, I heard Walgreens is thinking of the idea.  But they have no plans (at least for now) to drop cigs off of their shelves.

"Cigarettiquette!" officially released

A new book on smoking has been released!  "Cigarettiquette" by fellow smoker Sandy.  This book focuses on the glamor side of smoking.  While it's certainly a prosmoking book, I wouldn't specifically call it a book that focuses on mainly the smoking fetish.

The glamor of seeing women smoke cigs is only part of the big smokey pic (so to speak).

This book can also be purchased at Amazon.  More info on the book can be found at the URL below.

New IL cig butt law: $1500 fine for flicking/dropping butts on the ground

This article makes it sound like this new fine for "littering with cig butts" only applies to flicking butts outta cars.  But the new fine actually applies to dropping butts on the ground anywhere.  Including dropping and discarding cig butts while smoking outside.

$1500 is too steep for a fine.   I agree with those who dont consider dropping cig butts "littering."  It sounds like an indirect way to force people to quit smoking.  Modern cars don't have ashtrays.  And every street corner doesnt have a trash can let alone an outdoor ashtray.  So a smoker has no choice but to flick butts on the ground.

Some smokers actually keep the butts til they find a trash can.  Throwing cig butts in trash cans is a common way for trash can fires to start.

NYC: Smoking sctivisits light up in City Hall in e-cig ban protest

Smoking activists light up in protest

Audrey Silk led this group of NYC smoking activists.  I admire her nice work over the past I think up to 10 years now.
