When are we going to realize that smoking is an addiction, not a right?
Continually allowing it and its effects of 2nd hand smoke puts the health of
others at risk because smoke contains carcynogens. Everyone knows that. And
when one is waiting for the economy bus at the curb they must endure the smokers
because the smoke trail doesn't end at the red arrows on the sidewalk that
say "smoking area" but it drifts everywhere. That, and the fact no one
enforces that anyway. So if you fly, give up nicotine for a few hours; it
won't kill you but your habit may help kill someone else.Isn't it nice that all the new restaurants started with bars and booze in
the airport and they have the prime areas? That's certainly what we
need---smoking and drinking to excess while we travel. Of course in SLC it
isn't a heaklth issue, either, it's a "rights" issue.Boo on the SLC International Airport and their decisions in this regard!
Oh please! The smoking rooms at the SLC airport are completely enclosed and
seem to be under negative pressure because even when you walk past them, there
is very little smell of smoke. If the rooms bother you that much, walk on the
other side of the aisle, and you won't notice anything.
Hello! Colorado and Washington just legalized marijuana. But heaven forbid
anyone should be able to smoke a cigarette (which is a legal product btw) Get
over yourselves. Secondhand smoke isn't going to hurt you. I get so fed up
with the high and mighty attitude of militant anti-smokers ( and I'm not a
smoker)If you want to outlaw it then go through the proper legislative channels.
Because legislators aren't going to give up that tax revenue. As long as it
is legal though smokers should not be treated as second class citizens.
