Considering the fine men and women of the NYPD have no legal authority in Arizona, Mayor Bloomberg's questionable judgement wasted more NYC tax payers money while justifiably angering Arizona State Officials. Even the Federal Government shook its head in amazement.
"Reclaim the world's greatest city": how will Bloomberg react to what he will no doubt see as a personal attack by Reynolds on his fascist style of leadership? The ad to the left telling NYC smokers to Rise Above the Ban will certainly be taken by Bloomberg as a snide reference to his short physical stature. He is very sensitive about his lack of height, I'm told.
I would not rule out an invasion of Winston-Salem by New York City SWAT Teams or a helicopter assault of Reynolds' Tobaccoville factory. In fact, I would advise any Reynolds executives in NYC today to quickly leave before they are taken hostage or hung in Central Park on orders of the Little General himself.
Speaking of General, while I much admire and strongly support RJ Reynolds' efforts to steer cigarette smokers towards more discreet and less harmful sources of nicotine, I am not and have never been a fan of so-called American snus; be it Camel, Marlboro or any other. In taste, quality and especially bio-available nicotine, Swedish snus is the finest snus on the planet and has been for hundreds of years.
General Snus by Swedish Match is the largest selling brand of snus in the world today. According to the General Snus US store locator, there are 24 authorized General Snus retailers in the NYC area: two of them safely in New Jersey by the border. There probably are more but the retailers were afraid to have their stores listed fearing Bloomberg's wrath so check around discreetly for more General Snus dealers.
If you haven't already, give snus a try, New York City smokers. General Snus was the first real snus I tried and I recommend it to you. Its not that you have much to lose: Mayor Bloomberg has taken away almost all your rights and money already. Stay out of jail and switch to snus while you still can. I haven't had a cigarette in 4 years and most importantly, don't miss them a bit....and I was a Camel smoker for 37 years.
