North Dakota’s absurd new assault on property owners and smokers is going to create some headaches for law enforcement personnel tasked with policing it. And as you can tell from this CBS affiliate news report, they’re just thrilled about it.

“I think law enforcement is really strapped all across the state with resources,” said Mandan Deputy Police Chief Paul Leingang.

“Call the police, yeah we can come and respond but there’s a good chance that by the time we get there that person is going to be gone,” said Sgt. Mark Buschena of the Bismarck PD.
