I don't know but if anyone noticed this... but ...If the ban on this wins... what could be next?

Candy smokes can also be compared just the same can about Violent Video Games...

Similarities to the Candy smokes.

Targeted to Children (14+ for most games) = Targeted to Children
Commercials where people shoot the bad guy= Commercials depicting smoking.

Not to mention also in Magazines as well-- NO advertisement here though

But then again will say candy smokes = smokers due to advertising but directly defend against the suggestion that Violent games= Violent Youth based upon advertising.
(I am sure this will be argued)
Just a thought...

But I do feel they should just Re-Label them as Candy Sticks (not bones or anything like that ) And should just say--

"CANDY STICKS" That way they still can be marketed and sold.


But then again I remember when they took the Smoking Advertisements off the Air and also Disallowed them from sponsoring Racing Events as well as -- "BAR GAMES"

I on the other hand grew up in a household where both my parents smoked and I smoked for quite some time and have quit going on two years now.

Anything they want it to be. This began several years ago and won't stop until they take away every one of our freedoms.

Yes but consider this law for now if you gave them to your kids by these laws -- you could be arrested for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Now mind you this is giving candy that is round and shaped like a stick.

Had something typed out, posting on this site is a lost cause though.
