Stebbijo: Ban Cigs, Taters, Too

Stebbijo: I think the city should ban cigarettes for sale. While they are at it, they should also ban potatoes and cheese. Then, everyone will be so happy! However, when this happens you cannot clap about it because clapping is also banned. If you are caught smuggling any of the goods in from the State of Washington or growing spuds in your garden, you will suffer the consequences of mandatory cholesterol screening for 6 months at your own expense and a diet of romaine lettuce for 6 months with probation visits to Weight Watchers. It’s for your own good. A new judicial court will be formed to take on the excess of violators. It will be called the Physical Health Courts.

Question: What would you ban in Coeur d'Alene, if you were the despotic king/queen of the place?
