Legal Smoking Age in Texas
This just in from the ‘Politicians Without a Clue’ file:
Apparently the cure for underage smoking is to raise the legal age. “The further you can put this (legal age) off, there’s a much better chance that people will not start to smoke,” said Sen. Carlos Uresti, D-San Antonio, whose Senate Bill 448 was approved 26-4.
Senator Uresti has proven the point that politicians have no idea what’s going on in the real world. Everyone I know that smokes didn’t start at 18 (when it was legal). They all started in high school and some before high school. That’s 13 to 14 years old. So they’re already doing something illegal. Why not just enforce the laws we have?
Uresti couldn’t get a clue if he was naked, in a field of horny clues, covered in clue musk and doing the clue mating dance.
More and more I want to get into politics just so I can tell these people to their face how stupid the are.
