Well, I see the cigarette Nazis are at it again. No smoking in parks! Smokers pay taxes to build and maintain parks. They pay a hell of a lot more taxes than nonsmokers.
Would it not make more sense to have designated smoking areas away from areas where people congregate? To have signs in other areas requesting smokers to take their smoking 100 feet away from areas where children or adults are gathered? I’m sure that any smoker would cooperate in this manner.
The provisions that have been enacted are going to create much conflict and perhaps violence. Parks should be a peaceful place for all citizens to gather for fun and relaxation. A little common sense and fairness needs to be employed here.
