Default Anti-Smoking Laws

Now that we've established what everyone thinks about gun control laws, I'm curious to see where everyone comes down in the debate on anti-smoking laws.

Thoughts?

It depends. Most all public places is good to ban smoking, but bars it shouldn't be. IMO You have to be 21 to get in the front door and your not there for your health in the first place. Its not a place to take the whole family out for a fun time.

I personally think smoking is a disgusting habit and I do not like being around people when they are smoking.

That said, if someone wants to smoke, it's thier right and I can just leave the area.

I don't care if you smoke.... if you don't exhale.

I hate it. Filthy farking disgusting obnoxious suicidal habit.

I've seen 2 people rot from lung cancer. I grew up in a family where everyone one but me smoked. I paid my dues and earned the right to speak my mind on it.

If I could push a button and then everyone who smoked just disappeared... I would push it in a heartbeat. I hate it that much.

I hate when the person driving in front of me is smoking and it wafts through my vents and into my car. I despise it each time I see a smoker flick their butt to the ground. I loathe walking into the building where I work because the ground is absolutely covered with butts.

I chewed out my mother this past weekend when she came to visit. She forgot and actually lit one up inside my house.

I hate it. I hate it. I hate it.

I hate the money that people waste on this foul addiction. Money that could be spent on food, clothes, or other necessities. Money that could be saved for something important.

I hate the added expense to my health care coverage caused by all the illnesses faced by smokers.

Did I mention that I hate smoking? Have you ever watched someone you loved gasping for air? You see their chest working so hard for each breath and yet their lungs just can't provide the oxygen they need. Even though they are breathing from a mask providing pure oxygen, their lungs just can't do it any longer. It is a very slow, painful, torturous way to die.

Want to know my solution to smoking? I see it this way. Smoking is a 50 - 50 proposition. It kills 50% of those who smoke. So... Each smoker is forced to play Russian Roulette with a 6 shot revolver that has 3 rounds loaded into it. If you survive then you've earned the right to smoke. If you die then that's too damn bad. You chose to chance it.

For those of you who smoke and want to quit... I hope you find the will power to quit. For your sake and those you love.

For those of you who don't care and will smoke anyway... I despise you for what you do to yourself and inflict upon others.

I know I just pissed off alot of you and I don't give a damn. I earned it.

I agree with you 100%!

I too, have earned the right to bitch about the vile, filthy habbit.
I watched my father die a slow, agonizing death from COPD, emphysema, and Chronic Bronchitis. I watched my uncle die from lung cancer. I watched my father in law die from lung cancer and emphysema.

I absolutely hate and despise smoking!

I've seen two intelligent responses in this thread and one person who seems to be conflicted about their view of personal freedom.

Very interesting.

Very interesting.
"Intelligent response" is very subjective when discussing a topic like this. I would suppose your view would depend directly on how smoking has affected you and your loved ones.

Did you start this thread so you could call people who respond "facits"?

How is it that you get to decide what is an intelligent response, and what is not?

I don't think my response was so much intelligent as emotional. I obsess about smoking and the filth it pollutes our air with. If looks could kill I'd be a daily serial killer of smokers.

I watched and tried to comfort my father as he slowly died from lung cancer and emphysema. It's an excruciating death and I hated him for making me endure it with him.

Did you know that it is healthier for you to suck on the tail pipe of your car than to smoke? There are fewer toxins and carcinogens in automobile exhaust than there are in a cigarette?

Ever wonder how many tons of pollution enter our air from smokers? I wonder.... I haven't found a stat yet but it's gotta be huge. Think about how much a pack of cigarettes weighs before you open it. Compare that to how much it weighs after you're done. The difference is what's turned to ash and smoke.

Lastly.... You called me a fascist. Far far from it. I'll take the rights of people who want to breathe clean pure air over drug addicted suicidal masochists anyday.

Have you ever smoked in a confined space with people who don't smoke? Say... young children stuck with you in a car? Even if you crack a window the rest of the car is still subjected to your cancer causing pollution.

You want my stance on anti-smoking laws...? I think anyone caught smoking should be forced to breathe nothing but smoke until they croak. Put them in a small room and pump it full until they keel over.

I hate it with all the anger and revulsion I can muster.
