Are they talking about poles or cigs?
That sucks. I quit smoking about 3 months ago, but I still have sympathy for smokers.
Almost three years out myself, and I still hate this shit.
My dads best friend just quit smoking after getting throat cancer. That being said, this is really sickening.
I am all for the public smoking bans but if you want to slowly kill yourself and reek of smoke in your own private dwelling (including an apartment), so be it.
We should not be regulating private behavior that does not infringe upon the rights of others.
These petty tyrants believe they can save the world with their laws. Fuck them in their uptight asses.
Fucking nanny state strikes again. It seems a good percentage of people are more than willing to give up their rights as American adults in order to have government take care of everyone like parent.
this is the kind of stuff that people say don't exist. "why worry about them banning smoking in clubs, it's not like they are going into your house."
and here you are.
The government will not stop on things like this until you can only smoke in your car, by yourself, with the windows up.
Don't think it will stop there. They'll argue that it causes "distracted driving" and that smokers burden the health care system and ban that too after a while.
Are you kidding? You have to ban that too. I mean think of the effect that it would have on the person that purchases that car from the original smoking owner. We can't just sit back and allow the new owner of said car to be exposed to the smell and possible trace elements of carcinogens.
(What do you think? Does that believable and/or caring enough for me to run for SF or Belmont city council?)
i hope that whole State falls into the fucking sea
Personally, I'd prefer it to only fall up to my backyard. Instant beach front property.
This country is doomed. While I have no problem with smoking bans
in public places, this just goes too far.
