Maybe we should ban baby dolls too, since they might encourage little girls to drop out of school and become single mothers. You know how easily children can be influenced...especially without parents involved enough to explain the difference between real and make-believe.

@gemie1 - Those rock candy swizzle sticks look like crack on a stick. Get rid of those! Notify the grocery stores while we're at it. Those bags of powdered sugar look just like Blow. Utter nonsense.

Dad bought us those, all 14 of us kids, they're minty, we loved them. Not a one of us smokes and most of us have tried tobacco, but we are able to, because we were educated about smoking, tell the difference. I still eat minty things by the way.

The land of the free - led by social engineers who know what is best for me... The same crowd that doesn't want to be socially engineered by the right wants to socially engineer everyone... How about both sides leave us alone and go get a life?

So glad a resident from Bloomington is looking out for the welfare of St. Paul residents......isn't it enough St Paul small businesses are losing money due to the lock out? Now citizens from other cities are complaining about a $1 items? And apparently winning their arguments? Where should I complain about the hooligans that make my shopping experience scary at the MOA?

Candy cigarettes suck. Taste like dried toothpaste. Eat some decent candy, not this garbage.

What’s next? Root beer, jerky chew cans, and virgin daiquiris? I could site a study “showing that these products encouraged youngsters to take up” unhealthy habits

"ginger ale"... yup, that is candy ale - I agree - we have to ban it in case kids think that ale and beer, which are gateway drinks to alcoholism, is cool.

It's St. Paul city government. Nothing more needs to be said.
