TO DO IT. THATS LIKE MAKING EVERY RACE LIVE IN THIER OWN PART OF THE TOWN.PEOPLE WAKE THE F*** UP AND FIND SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE TO DO WITH YOUR TIME INSTEAD OF WASTING OUR TAXPAYER MONEY ON YOUR DUMBA** CLEANEX BOX SO YOU CAN WIPE YOUR TEARS FROM THE CRYING CAUSE PEOPLE SMOKE.MAKING A SMOKING BAN IS NOT OK SO DONT WORD IT TO MAKE IT SOUND LIKE IT IS.LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE.YOU OBVIOUSLY HAVE NOTHING TO DO SO MAYBE SOME COUNSEL MEMBERS NEED TO BE LAYED OFF.

Won't do any good. How many times does people have to tell you, this is not about rights. This is about HEALTH ISSUES, plain and simple and it will not be overturned, period....... You may as well get it through your thick shulls, this is the LAW and it't gonna stay that way, like it or not........

The difference? You don't go to the bathroom ever again - you die. If you never smoke again - no health negatives. You can't compare the two.

Yeah, yeah. The "magical" petition. If it's SOOOOO big and so prominent, how come no one on Topix can answer 1) What it says and 2) Where it is at?

If it did exist you would have to have someone read it to you and show you where to put your mark.

It is not that I do not like the smell of cigarette smoke. The actual smell is not all that bad but what it does to me physically is. I am very allergic to the cigarette smoke and it leaves me sick for days afterwards. There are many who are in the same shape I am in and cannot go where there is smoke. For us this sounds like a nice thing. If I were a smoker, for the sake of those who cannot tolerate smoke, I would simply go to a designated area or to my car to smoke.
