So far the, following states have approved the use of vaccine passports: New York, Hawaii, and Illinois. Those states that have outlawed vaccine passports (all GOP-lead) are Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Montana, Nebraska, Tennessee, and Texas.

PJ Media: Biden Administration to Ban Menthol Cigarettes Because They’re Racist or Something
The Biden administration will propose canceling (banning) menthol cigarettes because they attack more black people than white people. Menthol cigarettes are racist.

So, when someone is arrested, unless it’s a severely violent crime, they are cited and released and turned back out onto the streets. I actually heard someone who had been arrested walking down the street laughing that this was the perfect time because these are mandates to commit crimes.”
