Walking out of a building and into a wall of disgusting smoke is a pain in the butt, taking exams for your classes is inconvenient AND a pain in the butt....and life, in general, is not fair! These kids need to learn that you can't have everything the way that you want it...life just isn't that way.

Let the kids walk a different way. It is their right to smoke it they want to. They aren't smoking in the facility. I am starting to think smokers are a target in PA...

No right to smoke, no right to dope. Only 12% of Americans still smoke and most of that minority wants to quit. All smoking should be banned, indoors and out. If you don't like it, smokers, tough noogies, try taking your wheezing and whining to the tobacco pushers that sold that addictive, defective and lethal (when used as INTENDED, for cripe's sakes!) drug to you in the first place! The rest of us WILL HAVE OUR SMOKEFREE AIR, to which we are legally entitled!

i don't think putting up with smoke,in a very minimal way,is all that bad. you people should be thankful for smokers.because there the ones paying the high taxes,which in turn,pays for a large portion of your education.I think you "dave" are just bored and want to complain about something. In fact,your the true idiot.

Light up all your cigaretts and take a HUGE drag. Hold it in. Exhale. Repeat. Non-smokers subsidize the medical bills that smokers have accumulated. Smokers are a target of PA and rightly so. They are disgusting. Their habit is disgusting. Bunch of nicotine junkie drug addicts.

How some of you student cry babies whine regarding smoking/non-smoking. Most of you should be in the military helping out in Afghanistan instead of hiding out in school, drinkin, using up mom and pop's cash, strolling the hallway, hooking-up, and maybe studying a bit. Wait until you have to work for a living, then you will find out what some real problems there are in the world. Meanwhile, drink your paid for sodas or beer, enjoy the easy and comfortable life, while otherw work and fight for your la-de-da way of life

you don't have a right to smoke. you don't have a right to not smoke. you don't have the right to clean, smoke free air. you DO have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
