Je hebt een kantoor.. Er wordt gebeld. De secretaresse laat de politie binnen die vervolgens je hele kantoor door gaat snuffelen.

En wat vinden ze? Drie op elkaar gestapelde asbakken!

Fout! Dat komt je op een fikse bekeuring te staan.

Utopie of werkelijkheid?

“It’s like making a household glass tumbler illegal during Prohibition because you could pour whiskey into it,” he was saying.

Farley was commenting on the latest outrage committed by the nicotine Nazis.

At 3:30 p.m. on Monday, two inspectors for the Health Department “raided” the time-honored Players Club on Gramercy Park South.

Operating on an anonymous tip, the inspectors called on Players Club Executive Director John Martello.

Martello was out of the office and so was his assistant.

“When my assistant returned, the inspectors demanded she open my locked office. Of course, she was intimidated, and indeed opened the office,” Martello said.

“There behind the desk, on a low shelf, they found three stacked ashtrays.

“No cigarettes, nothing. No evidence of smoke, just three stacked ashtrays. I wasn’t even there.”

Martello said the reason the ashtrays were in his office is because the Health Department makes it illegal to have ashtrays on the bar since the smoking ban.

“I didn’t know ashtrays were illegal,” said Martello.

Farley said: ” If you have a kitchen license, the Health Department has the right to inspect you at any time.

“Clearly, the law wasn’t made for going into a private office, seeing stacked and stored ashtrays and giving you a citation. Previously, the Health Department in this regard was limited to food and beverage establishments for this law. But now they can go anywhere, they can go into your office building, a psychiatrist office, a hospital.

“Could you imagine if a cop on an anonymous tip went into a private office without probable cause for a search warrant, what would happen?”

  • I've alllllllways said that asking smokers "do you want to quit?" and reporting the results of that question, as is, is horribly misleading. It's a TWO part question. After asking if one wants to quit it must be followed up with "Why?" Ask why and the majority of the answers will be "because I'm supposed to" (victims of guilt and propaganda), not "because I want to."
