Are you kidding me? We're celebrating a place to encourage kids to smoke?! Pulling smoke ( any kind) into your lungs is harmful!!! Have we lost our minds? These people are nuts!!!!!And the Gazette is promoting and protecting them from negative comments!!!!!I wish that rag of a paper would go out of business!

Honestly, Gastonia has to change a little. And they don't say "Hey little kids! You need to smoke!" Hookah lounges are social places and do you think Gastonia has safe places for young adults to hang out? NO :P We have a ghetto mall and a high crime rate. Please, give us a break woman. If you have a problem, keep it to your damn self.

Absolutely agree! There are very few places for anyone, young or older to go and hang out that isn't your typical "club" scene. I have smoked a hookah but don't consider myself a smoker. I have only used the non-tobacco, herb only varieties (such as mint, etc.) It is a ritual as much as anything else. Also, the GG article repeatedly talked about CDC info on smoking of hookahs. It is like anything else, no one is holding a gun to your head and making you do it. Let's be truthful here, how many accidents and fatalities happen because of anyone smoking anything? Then look at the numbers for how many are because of alcohol. Don't get me wrong, I agree that cigarettes shouldn't have the advertising like they did years ago, and shouldn't be promoted as cool. I see my own husband struggle with this addication to nicotine. I do however think that in this nation it is a crying shame that they can pull tobacco ads from EVERYWHERE but liquor and beer can be advertised with half naked women, funny theme songs and dances and shown every 5 minutes on the tv, in magazines, etc. THAT is pushing something!

You are actually telling someone on a public forum created for comments to " keep it to themselves"?( I'll omit your junior high profanity). How childish and intolerant.
