Exclamation Minnesota old-timey "soda shop" forced to stop selling candy cigarettes

Humphrey added: “The Ramsey Tobacco Coalition, which is a program of the Association of Non-Smokers, went before the council with a group of high school students who said ‘research shows that candy cigarettes leads to smoking.’

We still have big league chew, but I haven't seen the dip beef jerky and candy cigs in probably 10 years.

My dad never had candy cigs.
His real ones though...very easy to sneak a pack out of the freezer.

I'm going to go out on a limb, and say only real cigarettes lead to smoking.

The Pussification of America continues.

I miss this stuff. I used to love it as a kid. Although now I am a dipper, I would not say this had any role in my choice to start dipping.

Might as well ban glass bottled sodas. Kids will drink these pretending it's beer and they'll grow up to be alcoholics.

I don't see what the big deal is about candy cigs. I ate them all the time growing up and as an adult I rarely smoke. If any of my friends back in elementary school wanted cigarettes they found ways to get them whether it be from other friends or sneaking them from their own parents. They're influenced by seeing other people smoke (mainly their parents), not some candy..

I never had a candy cigarette but I ended up smoking for a period of time anyway. This is stupid.

It is a good thing. Why don't we give our kids candy joints, or candy heroin? It's just candy.

Beef jerky dip used to be my ****. Sooo good. And I don't dip.

Ban pretzel sticks so kids don't pretend there cigars.

I remember having them when I was a kid, along with big league chew and beef jerky dip. I don't smoke, chew, or dip. I think people give too much credence to kid versions of adult activities. I'm pretty sure we all grew up with toy guns yet I'm not going around blasting people today. And like someone else said, if you can argue candy cigs are bad, then why not root beer in a glass bottle? It even says beer in the name.

Ohh trust me, they're going to ban the toy guns too. Haven't you heard? Biden and Feinstein are weaving that into the new laws they're working on. No more cap guns, water guns, laser tag guns, or rubber band guns for a start.

America has become too politically correct, too willing to give everything away in form of handouts, and too full of people with no spine who think candy cigraettes and the like are going to hurt their kids. Give me a break...

i think it's completely different. You dont spit the gum juice. You actually "smoke" the candy cigarette.
