It’s happening: New York to ban tasty looking Tide Pods
 
Quote:



Have you taken the Tide Pod challenge yet? No? Good. Then you have at least the amount of common sense God gave a pigeon. (I’ve tested this theory myself and pigeons don’t eat them.) Unfortunately, the same can not be said for everyone since YouTube is littered with videos of people attempting to eat the highly toxic packets of detergent.


So what do we do about it? Well, if you happen to be an elected official in New York, your first, gut-level reaction to any situation is to pass new laws regulating things. And true to form, New York is doing just that, proposing a law which would ban the sale of the products until the manufacturer stops making them look so gosh-darned delicious. (New York Post)

A new bill introduced in Albany this week would ban the production and sale of candy-esque Tide Pods and any other tasty-looking liquid detergent packets in New York — because toddlers who don’t know any better keep eating the toxic products and teenagers who do are chowing down on them for thrills.

The legislation, sponsored by Big Apple Democrats State Sen. Brad Hoylman and Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas, would require companies to ensure their detergent is a “uniform color that is not attractive to children” and is packaged in an opaque wrapper that is “not easily permeated by a child’s bite.”

The American Association of Poison Control Centers says more than 10,000 cases of young kids being exposed to single-load detergent packets were reported last year — and another 606 have already come in this year.

These two Democrats also sent a letter to Proctor & Gamble, informing them that they, “must use a stronger bittering agent to prevent ingestion of pods, reduce their pleasant smell, and make them feel more firm.”

The pods already come in a child safety container to stop little kids from eating them. Proctor and Gamble should not have to worry about teenagers who are stupid.

How many teenagers need to die in auto accidents before we make it illegal for teenagers to drive a car?

Again how did the human race survive millions of years without tide pods?

This is new marketing of an existing product, nothing more.

The FDA has been actively trying to ban kratom for the better part of a year even though it has caused zero known deaths in thousands of years. cannabis is still a schedule one narcotic according to the federal government again...zero deaths.


What happens if you drink bleach? Shoot gasoline into your arm? How about eat a bottle of aspirin? None of those are even controlled substances yet they cause deaths daily.


We do not need more laws...we need less. Stupid people do stupid things. They always have and always will.

You cannot bubble wrap the world. It is dangerous and life is fragile. That is what makes it worth living.

What does that have to do with my statement?

They have been out for a few years. It is just the latest meme being pushed by gen. Z.
