I'm not sure you can throw 80%+ of our state's population into a little group of people who are "worried about apartment living".

For example, I'm a Washingtonian, a non-smoker, and don't care about marijuana smoke in apartments.

[quote=azoria;4073404]Yeah....I know.

If you look around, some places have an unofficial smoking area. A few places bars/taverns have patios without servers and you can smoke there because technically nobody works there. The 25 foot thing is only enforced in downtown Seattle as far as I can tell.


I am from Oregon, lived in CA, Boston, NYC. I ended up after earning several degrees or a point away from and MA NYU almost dead from second hand smoke. Older so not banned and banning in 1/2 of work space, well smoke travels and fills the entire space.

Biochemistry, chemistry of arts, health fields, city government.

More non smokers die of side stream tobacco smoke then smokers (7k chemicals go deeper into lungs, heart, blood stream ALL cells and tissues.

After 8 months got the City NYC to investigate illegal smoking at major bank (back office).

2k cigarettes in a 20 minute period - the air was purple. People passing out (hydrogen cyanide, Co2 so on).

My health declined until I collasped. Lost my MA and the income stream. Indigent now.

Smokers - if you want to kill yourself, (in psychology, one of my degrees) it's called "slow suicide". Get it over with, jump in front of a Mac.

Don't kill others.

My mother an RN and more who worked in private practice with four neurosurgeons dies from lung cancer (there are test that show why and how). She did not smoke her Md's did.

According to this Gallup poll (which is certainly NOT scientific, but it's the best I could find) Washington has one of the lower rates of smoking.
The CDCs Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance also consistently finds Washington in the lowest 10 states for smoking rates.
