16 other states, including Iowa, also have smoke-free policies in place at their state-supported schools.

Also on Saturday, Governor Quinn signed legislation that restricts the display of e-cigarettes. Starting January 1st, 2015, the products have to be sold behind a counter in an age-restricted area or sealed case just like regular cigarettes.

    Another law, another regulation to stifle the freedoms and liberties of the People of the USA. One day, the Progressive Machine will be no more and we can live free once again. The Commies in this country will be prosecuted and stand before the Constitutional Law to reap their justice they so deserve.
