This has been an issue of much contention lately. Now, the Fremont Parliament passed a bill regulating the packaging of tobacco products with the goal of discouraging their use and decreasing their marketability. A lawsuit was, quite foolishly, brought against the bill and was quickly thrown out by Fremont Circuit Court. The purpose of this legislation is to protect the rights of regions to make whatever changes to tobacco product packaging they feel fit, in order to protect consumers. Anyone who supports regional rights should support this legislation.

The First Minister of Fremont, the namesake of this bill, is invited to make a statement.

Just for the record, I actually do not agree with the fart box law in Fremont, which doesn't provide consumer information and only creates an unnecessary hurdle to obtaining cigarettes. Eric Gardner was murdered by police simply for selling "loose" cigarettes, because the taxes in New York City are so high that there is a small black market for cheaper cigarettes. I can only imagine similar problems in Fremont. Not to mention the environmental impact these fart boxes have once they are disposed.

But I want the Senate to settle the question as to whether authority over cigarette packaging lies with the regions, or with the federal government under current law. At the moment, I am leaning towards signing the bill. But we have a 50/50 Senate now, so we can have a fair and inclusive debate.

I encourage both Truman and Mr. Reactionary to make their case.

Bizarre and inaccurate claims about police violence in Frémont aside, regionalizing our tobacco laws allows for vigorous and stimulating debates to take place at the regional level rather than concentrating all the power and activity in Nyman. Anyone who is in favor of activity and regional rights should vote for this bill.

Does the bill imply that federal regulations still supersede regional ones, or am I misreading that particular addition?
