    Does that mean we're exposed to second hand hypocrisy?

    I think Temp just assumed that none of us ever read more than one thread at a time.

    I'm wasn't privy to this other debate, but I think there's an obvious distinction between the right to use drugs, generally, and a right to stink up any public area you want and cause whoever is nearby to join in the consequences of your decision.

    It is the second hand smoke and butts that seem to be the real problem on this issue. Some smokers are inconsiderate assholes, and unfortunately all smokers are paying the price.
    Yeah. It only takes a few bad apples to ruin it for the rest of us. While I will not go as far to say that inconsiderate smokers have ruined it for all us kind smokers? They sure played a role in our rights being taken away.

    Having said that? I am 100% sure that reguardless of how considerate smokers have been? These haters would still be trying to strip of our rights to do what we wanna do in pubic places. It would not matter to them if all smokers were of the considerate nature as they simply HATE us for smoking.

    No, they don't hate you. They just want you to quit and one day you will eventually. It will be one of the best days of your lives.

    Here is what you do when you are in a building that allows smoking and there is a smoker

    exit or move away from the smoker until the smoke is no longer a problem.

    Here is what you do when you are outside and near a person that is smoking.

    Move a foot or two in any direction making sure to not be down wind of the smoker.

    If you can't be bothered to use these solutions, then please, feel free to grow a pair.
    This is one of the best post in this thread.

    I hope that some non-smokers in this thread start following your simple and easy steps

    Other than the obvious differences (how they affect you physically - and their ingredients) . . . and all that it's also a social-issue.

    There *was* a public acceptance concerning cigarettes - you know - there were the operatic stems and fanciful cases and so on. ther was a whole 'mystic' or 'class' about smoking - before they were admittedly harmful. . . now that's gone and replaced with awareness and a disapproval of smoking. It is no longer socially legitimate and most certainly no one thinks it's 'fancy' or 'high-class'

    So it went from being an acceptable social-engagement to just be a gross nuisance to many.

    Most illicit drugs - and pot (because pot's not illicit) never had - never will - have such connotations. How they effect you is seen as lazy, distasteful - and what made pot popular were the 60's . . . so that, there, further associates with the 'destestable riff-raff'

    so most of these issues are a social-concept just like women wearing high-heels and men wearing ties.

    Once again, for the blind who cannot read, nowhere did I say that you shouldn't be allowed to smoke. This is about WHERE you can smoke, not smoking in of itself.

    But keep making things up I didn't say all you want, it just makes you look bad.
