defends hookah lounges
You won’t catch Sen. Rob Kane, R-Watertown, puffing on a hookah or hanging out in smoky hookah haunts.

Waterpipes are not really his thing, Kane told colleagues on the legislature’s Public Health Committee, but if others want to share a communal smoke, they ought to be free to light up.

In the name of personal liberty, Kane spoke out passionately Friday against legislation that proposes to ban hookah lounges in Connecticut.

“We have choices. We have freedoms. We have the right to decide whether we should smoke, drink, jump out of an airplane, or do any other activity. It is not up to the government to tell people that they cannot do that,” he said.
