Yesterday, I noted that Portland, Oregon is banning city workers from wearing perfume or cologne. Nevada’s legislature, not to be outdone, is considering restricting or banning pesticides, potpourri, air fresheners, candles, and pretty much anything with a scent in public places.
You can read the bill, AB 234, here. The restrictions on pesticides have to be read to be believed. It doesn’t take much imagination to see regulations that burdensome leading to less pesticide use. That means more pests. It also means public places would be less healthy, not more.
What will legislators go after next in the War on Scent? Body odor? Because there will be a lot more of it in Nevada if this bill passes.
