Reuniting Cigs with their Native Land


The fight to put cigs back where they belong: in the bar
In a desperate attempt to reunite cigs with their native land — i.e. the bar — Jason Rehs has started an online petition to push for a less restrictive smoking ban in Ohio. Rehs is asking that smoking to be reinstated at bars, pool halls, bowling alleys, night clubs, and strip clubs. His goal is to get 5,000 signatures. The last time we checked, he had 4,205. Most of them were made anonymously. One was from "Martha Stewart." What Rehs plans to do with this petition isn't exactly clear. Maybe he has a large scale paper maiche project in mind. Either way, a little false hope never hurt anyone — especially those with massive nicotine addictions. -- Denise Grollmus
