Smoking restrictions are not an attempt to tell people what is unhealthy for them. The smoking restrictions (not bans) are not meant to protect the health of the smoker. The smoking restrictions are there to protect the innocent bystanders who would be impacted by the second-hand smoke. And while drunk driving is a terrible thing, it is not an absolute consequence of drinking alcohol. Lots of folks take a drink now and then, and only a very small percentage of them would even drive under the influence. Smoking ALWAYS has an impact on others.
Well then under your arguement we should also do away with cars I'm sick of breathing in all the exhaust fumes. Oh an also let's do away with all the grills at the city park to cause breathing in that smoke is also pretty harsh on the body. Point being ciggerettes are the least of your worries when the smoking takes place out doors. Me smoking a ciggerette 100 yards away from you isn't gonna have a single impact on you if you don't want to inhale smoke then stay away from the smokers. Respect personal bubbles and everyone will be fine its a win-win situation but no that would be to easy of a solution seeing as how it doesn't ruin something good for either side

I do understand and respect people that do not smoke. I completely understand that some people can be disrespectful to nonsmokers. I am a very hard working citizen of the united states. I'm a tax payer and I also pay high taxes on my cigarettes. Now these high taxes on cigarettes and alcohol really do help our state. I'm sure that no one has a problem with raising my taxes again on those cigarettes to help our state. Yet you feel its OK to take my freedom away and tell me where and when I can smoke my cigarettes. How about when you start handing out tickets and fines you take my taxes that I have paid on those cigarettes all these years to pay for that fine. What is happening to our freedom? I work, pay my bills, pay my taxes and all the government wants to do is take my freedom that my rights that I was born with. Everybody needs to wake up and see that are democracy is about to become socialism. Take a stand and quit letting them do this to the hard working people of the united states. It will start small and will only get worse.

Oh and by the way by me smoking outside only I'm giving the respect and the right not to breath in my smoke by walking or standing away from me while I enjoy my freedom and relaxation. Worry about the the real problems and make a change. Like the jobs that we need, the financial crisis, the drug abuse, and the citizens that abuse our system every damn day and get by with it that cause all these bigger issues in our country and state. When you figure the solution to those issues let us know because the ban of smoking in Parks isn't going to solve any of these issues nor will it provide for your children or grandchildren 50 years from now. It will never help these town financially either, because taking away freedom isn't going to pay for shit that this town needs. There are bigger issues. Wake up!

Being that you are from My Chicken (the ghetto of Flynt at that), I will try to make it easy so even YOU can understand. Cars have things called catalytic converters. Being from Flynt, you have probably stolen a few of them before. I am sure you know all about them, but do you know what they do, beside make you money at the scrap yard? They filter the air that the vehic.... Sorry... car lets out. Do you follow me so far there Toothless Rufus? Let me know if I am going to fast for you.... Ok, Very good. While it does not totally remove all the poison gas, it does remove a pretty good percentage of it, and helps saves the environment. If you were alive in the 70's, you would know about the pollution problem. Have your parole offic, I mean teacher show you stuff about leaded gas and car pollution from that time. Then you mention Bar-B-Q grills. Charcoal or propane (your choice) burn a lot cleaner than what cigarette smoke does. I have went past Happy's Pizza, and many other places that were cooking ribs, chicken etc.... Sorry... Ribs, chicken and other things and it smelled soooooooo good. I have never heard anyone (except a drug addicted junkie) say cigarettes smelled good. BTW You spelled cigarette wrong twice. Being from Michigan, I know a 9 letter word is huge for you guys up there, but hey. Being from the Buckeye, We understand. Why??

Stay in your lung cancer "bubble" when it comes to smoking, and you'll get all the respect in the world. You have no right to subject one other person in the world to your lethal fumes, not one.

Exactly that's why we smoke outside so we can give you the respect and your right to choose not to breathe our smoke in outside. Now respect me enough to give me my space to enjoy my cigarette. You have to remember to respect other peoples space also. Smokers support those Parks too. Its called sharing. What would it hurt to have a designated smokers area. Why because you didn't get your way. This is why our children act the way they do is cuz you don't teach your kids to respect other peoples space and property. My parents taught me to treat people the way you want to be treat even if you don't agree with the way they choose to live. Now people come along and try to take every thing away cuz they don't agree. Well what if I said I don't agree with the way you take care of your kid so we can have you banned also or the way you feed your kid so I'm banning you from the store. Grow up and walk away from the situation. Use your right to walk away not to taddle.

They have the right to remain silent and I wish they'd exercise that right instead of whining the Neanderthal national anthem

They'll be silent soon enough if they keep up there smoking, that's for certain. Just stay in that "bubble" doing it.

I guess people in other outdoor public places don't pay taxes then, such as the Pittsburgh Zoo, Heinz Field, PNC Park, Mountaineer Field, the parks in Clarksburg, Bridgeport, or a host of other towns in West Virginia- or in the 707 communities that have banned smoking in parks and other outdoor places-

Show me in the Constitution or the Bill of Rights, where it is a right jackass. Just like driving, or spitting in your face, it is a privilege, not a right. Just goes to show how ignorant your kind are.

Exactly, it is a privilege. A well earned privilege that I deserve as long as I'm respectful to others and follow the law. Drivers cause wrecks that kill people should we ban driving also? As to spitting in my face, you can be charged with a simple assault charge after doing so then you can do community service and pick those cigarette butts up. Those ones that I don't leave behind, I'm a respectful adult that smokes. Oh and by the way it doesn't have to be in the bill of right to be my right. I pay taxes on those cigarettes so that gives me my right.
