San Francisco Bans Smokeless Tobacco At All Sports Venues

Via- Time

On Friday, San Francisco became the first American city to ban smokeless tobacco—chewing tobacco and “moist inhalable snuff”—at sports venues.

The new ordinance, signed by Mayor Ed Lee, goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2016. Violators will be asked to leave the playing fields (where cigarette and cigar smoking is already banned), the Associated Press reports.

 

 

Well I guess it was only a matter of time before this happened. Not to sound like one of those old school baseball purists, but what a grown man wants to put in his own body is his own business. If you think injecting HGH into your veins until your arms explode is going to make you a better player or the buzz you’ll get from that tennis ball sized chaw is going to help you get a base hit, who am I to say that’s wrong? So what if you only have 1/3 of your jaw left by the time you start cashing those social security checks. That’s just grown men doing grown men things. Maybe the tobacco ban will run smoothly in the Bay Area, but good luck telling that to those good ol’ boys down in the Lone Star State. I’m sure that will go over really well and no one will be upset whatsoever.
