In the state of New York, the law says you must be 21 to buy a spray can of whipped cream. Why, you ask? Because some (perhaps most) of these cans contain nitrous oxide, and some people buy them to “huff” and get high. 🤣😆🤣https://t.co/iiR431oYVB— Brian Anthony (@BriansCerebrum) August 25, 2022
WNYT sent a reporter out to see how the ban is going and found that some store owners were not even aware of the law. On the other hand, Stewart’s, a store located in Menands, New York, displayed a sign about the new age requirement for whipped cream buyers. Albany resident Fiore Polera told WNYT, “I agree with it 100 percent, ’cause I guess young kids are trying to get high off of it or something.” According to the report, opinions were mixed. Yash Thakur, who was visiting Albany from Connecticut, said, “I think it is a bit extreme, because I think the amount of people using whipped cream for whipped cream purposes is a lot bigger than people using it for that reason, so if kids like it with ice cream and stuff.” Compared to the massive problems the state faces, people abusing the gas inside of a whipped cream container is small potatoes. There are far worse things than whipped cream out there, including crime, easy access to actual hard drugs, filth, infrastructure in disrepair and the countless thousands of individuals living on the street. New York legislators may think they’re tackling problems, but it seems like this is a fix for a problem that really doesn’t impact too many New Yorkers. But, I suppose, priorities. It’s foolishness like this that could help New York Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin unseat Hochul in November. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
I hate New York. Must be 21 with ID to buy whipped cream in a can. Seriously ? https://t.co/nq9Ctwlpp6— You Can’t Handle The Truth (@TruthIsRight123) August 9, 2022
