Tobacco Company Sues Over Rolling Papers Ban in D.C.

KY Tobacco Company Sues Over Rolling Papers Ban in D.C.

What’s good homies, this story is coming from my favorite, and maybe your favorite maker of rolling papers. The company that produces Zig Zag rolling papers are sueing D.C. over they’re unconstitutional ban over rolling papers in D.C. Full story here.

Now, they aren’t exactly fighting for our right to party. Although most of the consumers that purchase rolling papers only use them to smoke weed (which is why they are banned) The National Tobacco Company is fighting for just what they stand for, tobacco. They say that this ban has caused “direct injury” to the company.

When the city’s lawmakers passed this ban, which wasn’t enforced, they said the only purpose of these products where for illegal drug use. Lawmakers said they were concerned teens were using these to smoke marijuana. Damn straight they are.

Since National Tobacco only wants papers to be legal so people can smoke tobacco and get cancer, it’s hard to root for them to be victorious. But just because many companies are motivated by greed doesn’t make D.C.’s paper ban right.

To be honest with you all, I believe it is total bullshit that they “attempted” to ban papers in that area. Even further I think its stupid that other cities are following this. Hopefully soon this ban can be lifted, amongst other laws, and we can all puff in peace. Until then, stay up greenies.
