Nevada: where prostitution is legal and Febreeze is not.

From Weasel Zippers:
A Democratic lawmaker in Nevada has introduced a bill that would outlaw air fresheners and candles in public places. But some critics said the proposed law goes too far – and would even prohibit priests from using candles in Mass.

Democratic Assembly Paul Aizley, from Las Vegas, presented his bill Monday. It would set restrictions on pesticides, fragrances, and candles to accommodate people with “chemical sensitivities.”

Radley Balko, over at The Agitator points out that this was how smoking bans got their start.
