NY Bans Teens From Buying Whipped Cream Canisters - But Not Abortions or Hormone Therapy

New York is now banning the sale of whipped cream canisters to anyone under the age of 21 in an attempt to stop kids from using them to get high.

Which might sound like a somewhat reasonable, if not just a bit ridiculous, statement – until you consider the fact that the same Democrats passing laws against selling Reddi Whip to teens are the same Democrats who think those same kids can correctly decide whether to get abortions, take body-altering hormone blockers, and forever mutilate their bodies with gender “reassignment” surgery.

The new whipped cream law, sponsored by Queens’ State Senator Joseph Addabbo, Jr., is an attempt to crack down on “whippets,” a method of getting high off inhaling the nitrous oxide that pressurizes the canister. The substance, known in the medical field as "laughing gas," is considered highly addictive and known to cause health problems, brain damage and even death when abused.

Addabbo said he pushed for the law “after receiving constituent complaints about empty canisters on neighborhood streets.” Now, store owners caught selling whipped cream to those under 21 could be hit with a $250 fine for the first violation, and $500 for every violation after that.

Ironically, in that same New York, underage children are legally able to procure abortions and access hormone-altering contraceptives without parental consent or even notification, per state law, as well as begin puberty blockers and obtain gender-"affirming" procedures before the age of 18.

In 2020, New York changed a state law to allow minors to change their IDs to reflect their “gender identity,” rather than their biological sex.

New York Democrats have also introduced legislation expressly allowing parents to obtain “gender affirming care” for their underage children, including hormone replacement therapy and even permanent body-altering surgeries.

All for the same age group who apparently can’t be trusted to buy canisters of whipped cream.
