Texas Woman Arrested After Calling 911 For Cigarettes, Police Say – Fox News

Authorities in North Texas say a 48-year-old woman called 911 to have a deputy deliver cigarettes to her home.

Hood County sheriff’s Lt. Kathy Jividen says the woman, a Granbury resident, called 911 on Feb. 11 asking for the cigarettes. Jividen says the woman instead received a visit from two deputies and was arrested.

She was charged with a misdemeanor count of abuse of 911. She was later released from the Hood County jail on a $1,000 bond.

Jividen says the caller was “very intoxicated” when she dialed 911.

Granbury is about 65 miles southwest of Dallas.

Leftist Nutbag In Oregon Proposes Bill That Would Make Cigarettes Prescription-Only Drugs

Bill Proposed In Oregon Would Make Cigarettes Prescription-Only Drugs – KPTV

If you’re a regular smoker, you may want to keep an eye on a new bill in the Oregon Legislature.

Rep. Mitch Greenlick, from Portland, is sponsoring a bill that makes cigarettes a Schedule III controlled substance, meaning it would be illegal to possess or distribute cigarettes without a doctor’s prescription.

Under the proposal, offenders would face maximum punishments of one year in prison, a $6,250 fine or both.

Other drugs and substances that are considered Schedule III controlled substances are ketamine, lysergic acid and anabolic steroids.

“The State Board of Pharmacy may adopt rules placing requirements and limitations on the sale or transfer of products containing nicotine,” the bill’s text says.

“I think it’s pretty crazy,” said Juan Silva of Salem. “I don’t see it going through. It’s going to be something to watch for, but I don’t think it’ll pass.”

Others see the proposal differently.

“I hope it passes and I hope people actually think about it,” said Rick Cannon of Salem. “You know there’s less and less smokers everyday because they know how bad it is for them, so I just hope people wake up and realize how bad it actually is for them.”

Greenlick also made headlines this week by suggesting a state committee look into the hiring procedure used by the University of Oregon when it named Mark Helfrich the new Ducks head coach.

Another day, another Marxist Moron

I used to give these awards out every month, but, frankly, I am just going to give them out as they are warranted. And in this case, it is definitely warranted!

 New York could be the first state to ban the sale of cigarettes in drug stores as well as in supermarkets and big-box stores like Wal-Mart that have pharmacies.Sam Hoyt, a Buffalo Democrat and co-sponsor of the bill.

Measures similar to the bill gaining ground in New York have already been enacted in cities such as San Francisco and Boston, in towns and in parts of Canada. But the bill in Albany would be the first statewide ban, according to Assemblyman

Supporters and opponents say the ban would likely lead to further measures to stop the sale of tobacco products.

Like I have been saying, it is all about Nanny-Staters trying to control everything they can. And this is a classic case, instead of just outlawing cigarettes outright, government keeps trying to find new ways to profit off of them, or pass laws to control behaviors.
