Idiocy In Illinois: Anti-Blunt Pot Wrap Legislation Pushed

​Good news, folks. Preachers, police and politicians in Illinois must have already solved all the real and important problems troubling the state, because now they seem to have time to go after blunt wraps.
Clergy and cops are backing a plan being pushed in the General Assembly to classify blunt wraps — made of tobacco leaves, and often used to roll marijuana — as “drug paraphernalia,” reports Kristen Mack at WGN-TV.

​Blunt wraps come in flavors such as cherry, peach and “purple thunder” and are supposedly “used to camouflage the potent smell of pot” (good luck with that one). The wraps, commonly found at gas stations, liquor stores and mini marts, are inexpensive and popular among urban youth.
Because of their supposed “lack of legitimate uses,” the flavored wraps have suddenly become a “crisis” for ambitious politicians and misguided, moralistic preachers.
“Having this product in mainstream stores is like having drug pushers in our neighborhoods,” said the logic-challenged Bishop Larry Trotter, pastor at Sweet Holy Spirit Church on Chicago’s South Side.
“Blunts are an indefensible product marketed to children and entirely identified with illegal drug use,” the hot air-spewing holy man averred.
Trotter claimed he would circulate petitions in 50 Cook County churches over the next week to garner support for the ill-advised legislation. He plans to lead a contingent of annoyingly “concerned,” butt-insky preachers and community leaders to Springfield, armed with signatures, to urge passage of the microcephalic bills.
The anti-blunt wraps legislation is being sponsored in the state by ambitious but dim-witted Sen. Kwame Raoul and blowhard state Rep. Art Turner. Some cities, including Boston, have banned the sale of blunt wraps, according to WGN.
It seems Trotter isn’t going to be satisfied by ridding the state of blunts. The obnoxious do-gooder said he plans to “ask” the liquor store across the street from his church to stop selling mini-cigars, which he claims are often emptied of tobacco and filled with marijuana.
“If it is not removed from the store, then we will shut it down,” the megalomaniacal Turner threatened during Sunday morning’s “worship” service.
