I'm trying to make sense of the flavoured tobacco ban just put in place in Alberta by the new NDP majority.
Is this really the most pressing issue in the province today?
And why ban menthol cigarettes, which research shows are preferred by African-American smokers? Why not ban all tobacco products if they're unhealthy? Why the paternalistic, nanny state focus on the flavoured kind. That seems weird.
Then again, the answer is obvious: tax revenue.
