Shisha Tobacco… thoughts?

Hi hi!

So I came upon this interesting article from CBC today and it got me thinking… Shisha Tobacco is a very contested issue and with the practice gaining in popularity lately,  the issue of legality was bound to pop up sooner or later.

Although I am not sure where I stand on this issue, I thought that this may be the best place to throw it out into the inter-webs and see what I get back. PLEASE weigh in… I would love to hear what you have to say!🙂

Thanks everyone!

  1. I think Shisha should DEFINITELY be covered under the law. I’ve talked to people who use this type of tobacco, but really have NO IDEA the effect that it has on them and their bodies. They don’t understand that it is just as harmful as cigarettes and that the effects on their body can mimic that of smoking cigarettes.
    Also, this point wasn’t mentioned in the article, but I think that there needs to be more laws for Shisha “restaurants” too. Canadians are not allowed to smoke cigarettes/cigars etc. in buildings- but there are establishments that are 100% dedicated to smoking Shisha. This doesn’t seem right to me- and I think that as Canadians, we really need to fight to have these types of establishments put under some kind of law- or abolished all together.
