Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

A Constitutional Long Shot

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has proposed a ban on pharmaceutical advertising. The Boston Herald reports that "[l]ead sponsor Kathi-Anne Reinstein (D-Revere) said she doesn’t ’begrudge anyone their First Amendment rights,’ and doesn’t pretend to know the legal implications of the bill."

While the ban is an admitted long shot, it’s always amazing to see which First Amendment rights East Coast liberals support and which they don’t--which is only slightly less amazing than watching lawmakers pass laws without knowing their legal implications.
