No more flavored blunts.... Governor Quinn outlaws all flavored tabacco papers in Illinois


It’s now illegal to sell flavored tobacco papers in Illinois under a measure Gov. Pat Quinn signed into law Thursday.

The law, which takes effect immediately, bans the sale of all tobacco wrapping papers including cigarette papers, blunt wraps and cigar wraps that are flavored with anything other than menthol.

Supporters argued the papers, which come in flavors including grape, chocolate and vanilla, were marketed to children and young adults who use them to roll drugs such as marijuana and crack cocaine.

Anyone caught selling flavored papers will face fines that start at $100. Like any of the hundreds of new state laws passed each year, it will have to be enforced to be fully effective.

The law also establishes tougher penalties for the sale of heroin by lowering the amount of the drug someone must sell to be eligible for prison from five grams to three grams.

Also Thursday, Quinn signed House Bill 3819, a new law designed to strengthen bilingual education in Illinois.

Our pension syatem is in the sewer, Madigan and Cullerton are stealing miullions by the truckload from taxpayers, hundreds are being shot, wounded, and killed in the streets of Chicago, and this is all Quinn has to worry about. No wonder this state is bankrupt. Both financially and morally.

"roll drugs???" are you kidding me with this shit? Does this cock really think that by getting rid of these papers, that kids are gonna stop smoking buds? They're making it too easy. Tickets for weed which is too much trouble for zero return, and now taking away flavored wraps? Why not just get rid of the whole law and make it legal. Not like they're gonna study, get jobs, or be productive either way. To stop anyone for a blunt when there is no possibility of court is just a nuisance... Sort of like pissers and drinkers.

Obama just loves Governor Quinn for skirting the real issues and passing the little stuff. Very Obamalike.

Ban, shoes! 98% of druggies and dealers wear shoes.

If there were no shoes no crime!

Ban electric power. Then the criminals could not watch T.V. and get high. Ban lighters too.

Ban cars! that's the ticket. Without shoes cars or electric
crime would be reduced.

Water! No water and everyone would die and there will be no crime except from the Govenor's office.

Freak'n brilliant.

So online sales of the goods will take the place of physical in store purchases.

http://www.rollingpaperdepot.com/Flavored-Rolling-Papers

If not from that site from 100 more like it.

Any way some clever bootlegger or smuggler will be selling these out of the tailgate of his SUV in the hood, by the box load. The same with stolen sneakers or other illicit or illegally obtained merchandise.


Dear Quinn:

HINT! Unlawful weapons and drugs have been prohibited from sale in IL. One can buy dope and guns in the streets in IL will no issue and with great ease.

So special rolling paper is going to somehow be different in terms of your outlawing it as a way to end it's presence and access to it? Dream on!

I hear Obama himself loves the flavored rolling papers.

Way to turn traitor against the Magic Negro! Repercussions will follow!

I love the caption on the photo about the flavored rubbers. Classic! Shaved is one crackling wit.

Lord, I hope the governor is not a fan of the Pedobear.

Our last two governors went to prison. Quinn will get there eventually; his conduct will be his undoing.

I just hope his trip to Club Fed is not for fucking kids or anything extra sick such as that.

Why does Mall Santa Quinn need to be surrounded by kids to put pen to paper?

Cheesy photo op much Gov?

Most of those kiddos are white... Lets see Quinn go to the hood and sit among the many black tweens and teens who are the real users of the flavored rolling paper the Governor now seeks to criminalize.

Less of a warm reception there, I'd suspect.

Lil Mouse can perform at the signing ceremony as well! He can do a cover version of Monday, Monday in honor of Quinn and Quinn's crusading efforts to make like Rahm and 'do it for the kids'.

Perry F'ing Mason said...

Quinn is an embarassment. He is a dreamer if he thinks the violence and crime are going to somehow disappear.

Concealed carry should be passed to give those faced with violence a fighting chance.

The best Quinn's legacy can be is that he didn't go to jail after his four years.

We'll see - there is still time.

Next Case.

This guy is the next gov to buy soap on a rope. He is corrupt as well, he plays dumb and hides it well but just wait.

Notice how the biased media report casually slips in a one-liner about "strengthening bilingual education" at the end there.

No prohibition, of any kind, at any time in human history, has ever achieved it's intended purpose. None. Ever.

Might as well outlaw those little itty-bitty zip lock bags that are littered all over the curbs. That's how the weed and crack is distributed.

Mayor Harold Washington once said , "Quinn is the dumbest Son of a bitch he has ever met and would not give Quinn a political spot, stating Quinn didn't have enough sense to be a dog catcher.

Quinn will NEVER pass Concealed Carry as long as he's in Office. If you want it, get 100,000 Illinois Voters to March on the State Capital in Protest. Unless something Massive is done, he won't budge. Either that, or a Tax Revolt by all Illinois Voters wanting Concealed Carry. I haven't seen a single petition or ANYTHING organized to protest no CC in Illinois. The strength is in the numbers. You can rant all you want, NOTHING will happen, you might as well be pissing into a fan.
