South Dakota state lawmakers once again stand up to defeat the Nicoderm funded smoking ban rent seeking activists

Anti-tobacco bill goes up in smoke
Jan 17, 2008 11:29 AM CST

A bill to let South Dakota cities and counties adopt their own smoking and tobacco regulations has died in the House State Affairs Committee on a 9-4 vote.

Clearing the Air chronicled South Dakota's stand for freedom here, excerpt below:

"...A couple years ago the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (Nicoderm) funded American Lung Association, American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, and the rest of the Nicoderm marketing department attempted to get local South Dakota cities and counties to pass smoking bans. So the legislature of South Dakota stepped up and said to the pharmaceutical company pawns, "Ok, so you want a statewide smoking ban, we'll give you a smoking ban.......First off, no local government may enact a law which supersedes our statewide smoking ban; second, smoking is banned in all public and quasi public places, with the following exemption........ those establishments with a liquor license are exempt....."

South Dakota may indeed be the last bastion of hope in an ever increasing socialist nanny-state nation. And is perhaps the last remaining state steadfast in its stance for freedom, limited government and common sense.

I personally one day fully intend to move to a large acreage plot of land in South Dakota, far from the light rail loving, Birkenstock (light in the loafer) wearing, white wine and Brie swilling liberal lawmakers and over-taxation that is Minnesota.
