"The Massachusetts Appeals Court yesterday upheld the City of Boston’s ban on the sale of cigar wraps or 'blunt wraps,' the rolling papers that are used by some youths to make marijuana cigars. The court said that the Boston Public Health Commission’s 2008 regulation was a 'permissible exercise of the commission’s expansive authority to safeguard public health and is constitutional in its origins and operation. The regulation is rationally related to its permissible purpose of protecting residents of Boston, particularly young residents, from the harmful effects of tobacco use.'" [editor's note: Clever; they get to claim it's "for the children" and not "against the potheads" - SAT] (07/27/11)
