    So what you're saying is that you think its OK to create a stupid policy that will most likely fail because you think something is "disgusting" and you just don't like it?

    Its disgusting and it's a public health issue. I can walk anywhere here without having to worry about choking to death on cigarette smoke, my eyes burning, or my lungs being damaged.

    Like I said, I seriously doubt any of that is going to seriously affect your health unless you are walking around in massive clouds of cigarette smoke.

    Sorry I'm assuming I should be able to walk in a public place without choking and eyes burning because people decide to just light up cigarettes. Reducing cigarette use is a good thing, there is no con to it. Being able to know I can go anywhere I want and know there won't be people smoking.

    So you are willing to ignore people's freedom to smoke because you don't like smoking? Am I correct in saying that?

    Last time I checked you don't have the freedom to negatively affect other people's health and well being by smoking.

    And like I said, unless you are walking around in clouds of cigarette smoke, your health isn't going to be negatively affected.

    Eventually it will, get enough exposure and it will start to affect your health.

    Yeah and you can get them online as well. Not supposed to because it avoids all the federal and state taxes, but they've been unable to stop it.

    In universities and some others I've seen it is indeed a closed room with a negative airflow that is ventilated.
