Honorable John Engler
Dear Gov. Engler:
Your record of "bold steps to reduce tobacco usage in the State of Michigan" is commendable, as is your motivation, "to protect those most vulnerable from the influence of others." Thank you that "the curbing of smoking will continue to play a central role in [your] overall strategy to promote a healthier Michigan." On receipt of your e-mail message yesterday afternoon, I called and spoke to Stacy Watkins and expressed thanks verbally as well.
Enforcement of the law on a state-wide basis will lead to more than better health; it will lead to reduction in drug abuse, promiscuity, AIDS, alcoholism, suicide, drunk driving, and crime, as the bibliography in the Narrative, Enclosure 4, shows. The State Police already act against other cigarette smuggling. We need to end the rest of the cigarette smuggling epidemic.
Please task the State Police to enforce MCL § 27, MSA § 28.216.
