Bunch of guys puffing along, enjoying the scenery, stopping & supporting local businesses. Could they bring along their own sticks? Or meet at a smokeshop, to buy sticks? Is it illegal to buy cigars outside of a shop? Sure, they can wail, "Think of the children." This didn't look "Kid Friendly." So what's the problem?
This was done to stifle fun. Pity, it looked like a good business model; How are we supposed to help "grow" the economy with BigBro in our way?
