About the only thing federal,state and local governments can do is legislate action against smokers. Do the pregnant,illegal,aliens still have their babies in local hospitals at taxpayer expense,smokers and non-smokers? Do their non-english speaking children show up at schools at taxpaper expense,smokers and non-smokers? I'd say voters(smokers)need to do some serious house cleaning of the city council in the next election.

You don't have the right to f*ck up my lungs, smokers. Sure, you're free to smoke, but at your own risk, and without interfering with the lives of others a.k.a. go smoke by yourself.
I don't see why this ban took so long to be established.

One reason why non-smokers find smokers so intrusive(besides the stomach turning smell) is because so many smokers fling their cigerette butts onto the ground where they often pile up. Thats like me flinging my sandwich rapper onto the pavement when I am done eating. Trashy, dis-respectful and just plain rude. If most of you had your manners in check people might not look down on smoking as much as they do.
Parick..guess there won't be any cigerette smoking drunks on the beaches..darn. Keep it at home because the majority of people don't want to be subject to it.
