Cigarette smoke lingers, I can often detect and breathe cigarette smoke even when someone is smoking way further up the street, again if you are a smoker I don't expect you to understand this because you won't.

I'm not kidding or playing around when I say this, but breathing someone's cigarette smoke causes immediate congestion in the lungs. It lasts up to thirty minutes or longer. Why should I have to breathe that s**t because YOU want to smoke? If you want to do, then fine, but don't bother me with it. I've actually taken to telling smokers, "thanks for making the rest of us breathe your s**t" whenever someone smokes out in public. I don't care anymore, if you are going to make the rest of us smoke whenever you smoke then you deserve to be called-out.
You said it all man. Keep calling those selfish bastards out. Eventually we will win this, I don't know if its in my life time, but eventually smoking will be so restricted that future generations wont have to deal with this sh..

Your rights should end as soon as they affect someone else's rights. In not only smoking but in every facet of society.

Or do people usually just not follow the law?
Unless your smokin' ganja.

Another trend that is devoping in Health Insurance is puting restriction on smokers. I don't live or work in Washington. But, the trend is ganing popularity nationwide. They are trying you curb the cost of insurance on people with high usage on their health plan. Smoking, Overweight, High Blood Pressure, Etc.. My employer has even stated that in 2015 they are going to ask us to take and active role in out health care or drop out insurance.

Dig a deep hole about 300 feet Deep, cover the hole, and smoke there. Please leave the surface of the Earth alonge. Also acceptable: Charter the next rocket to the moon, and find a way to smoke there.

I quit smoking a couple years ago. I just got sick of it, sick of smelling like an ash tray and sick of coughing. No fancy pills or patches, I just threw my pack of smokes away and stoped. Now I get bad headaches around secoundhand smoke and I really notice how bad smokers smell. I am glad I quit.

Now it makes sense why there is such an abhorrent number of people smoking while driving. Which of course given the poor traffic conditions, makes a very bad situation when they hang their smoke out the window, because my air conditioner pulls that in and forces me to do recirculated until I'm away from them.

All Washington has to do now is force people to keep their car windows closed. Let smokers smoke themselves out...(with a homie's love...) without affecting others, letting their air conditioning system get all clogged up.

The last thing I'd like to see is segregation of smoking vs. non-smoking in apartment complexes, to where people who smoke can be congregated together so as not to affect those who don't smoke. That's a pipe dream, certainly. But one can hope.

What? Don't you know that grilling creates carcinogens? Do you want people to smell your carcinogens? The smoke REEKS of DEAD FLESH and CAUSES CANCER.

And that is why grilling smells within 25 feet of noses must stop at once.

(P.S...... ....I love steak.) HA HA HA! I smoke, too. But the point is valid.

You can lawsuit yourself - and your country - to death. Be very careful what you wish for..... One person's concerns and prioriities are important. Just be careful not to diminish others in your zeal to have your world vision unfold.
Thanks for the false equivalency.
