In their never ending crusade to keep our children safe from the evils of this tempting world, our benevolent legislators are teaming up with concerned lawyers and setting their sights on those horrible dens of iniquity known as Hookah Lounges.
According to authorities who know a lot about stuff; hookah lounges must be shut down to save our children from these shops of ill-repute. Alternatively, hookah lounge operators can begin engage in the political process by first bribing -oops… sorry, we mean "lobby" their elected officials and then submit to "regulation" and keep their businesses open.
"Lounge opponents say that hookah with its flavored tobacco smoke bubbling through cooling water is the gateway to cigarette smoking.
‘There’s a risk that people who are non-smokers will be drawn to these places, enjoy the social aspect of using hookahs in these lounges. Then find themselves addicted to nicotine and needing to buy packs of Marlboros,’ says Mark Gottlieb, executive director at the Public Health Advocacy Institute."
