    I hope they give him a 4th term and a 5th and a 6th. If he stops being Mayor then he might want to go for a higher office and subject the rest of the country to his nonsense.

    If Mayor Bloomberg isn't an example of a man drunk with power I don't know who is. Here is a guy that has been a Democrat, an Independent, and if memory serves me correct, a Republican. He seems to be whatever he needs to be to achieve power. Oh, and let's not forget for all you OWS types out there, he's also a billionaire. In summary, what we have in Mayor Bloomberg is a power hungry elitist pig with no principles bent of fascism.

    Way to go New York. You're getting exactly what you voted for.

    Not to my knowledge because advertisement is illegal so coupons and discounts are pointless since you can't distribute them.

    New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Monday proposed requiring that cigarettes be hidden from view in retail stores as a means to reduce smoking in what he said would be the first law of its kind in the United States.



    Bloomberg plans to introduce to the City Council on Wednesday two bills that would require retailers to keep cigarettes in a drawer, behind a curtain or in some other concealed location.

    Some retail trade groups and tobacco companies criticized the proposed display ban as an unnecessary burden.

    "These laws would protect New Yorkers, especially young and impressionable New Yorkers, from pricing, discounts and exposure to in-store displays that promote tobacco products," Bloomberg told a news conference at a city hospital.

    "Such displays suggest that smoking is a normal activity and they invite young people to experiment with tobacco. This is not a normal activity," he said.

    Stores would still be allowed to advertise and display pricing information but the actual tobacco products would only be visible during a sale or restocking.

    Under current federal and state laws, cigarettes must be accessible only to a store's cashiers, and in many city stores they are prominently stacked on a wall behind the cash register.

    The proposal would also increase penalties on stores that illegally resell cigarettes smuggled in from states with lower tobacco taxes, which Bloomberg said cost the city $30 million in lost tax revenue every year.

    This guy is something.....huh? Is he willing to give up all the money that is made off of Cigarettes? Ready to give up those taxes over cigarettes? He will decide for all New Yorkers.....huh? How can NYers put up with this guy? To top it off they give this POS a 3third term. First Salt in foods, then Sugary Drinks, and Now Cigarettes. What's Next Beer and Alcohols?

    I am really, really, really getting sick of Bloomberg wanting to shove his beliefs down everyone else's throats. Seriously, why does this guy feel the need to control everything?

    Yes.....18 here. But then the article said they had stores where their parents had to be with them in NY. Its not like that around me. But people do look for discounts and a lot in Illinois run over the Border and buy Cigarettes in Indiana.
