Citizen's petition calls for smoking ban on Massachusetts Street

I've always seen outdoor smoking bans as ridiculous. I'm far more concerned with getting DUI drivers off the road, and feel there are other issues far more alarming than being exposed to smoke for two seconds outside while you pass someone on the street. If you feel differently, vote with your dollars. Don't visit businesses that allow smoking around the door or on the patio. But don't try to police other adult's actions. Saying this is just an expression of your first amendment right is weak. In the US nowadays, that phrase is used more by the oppressors than the oppressed.

So are you out walking down mass in the middle of the night? Because last time I checked, there are no concerts at the venues in the middle of the day. Replay has the earliest sets, and they aren't super early. Your whole premise still sounds like a huge exaggeration. I go to these places you talk about, including concert venues, all the time. I never have to walk through plumes of smoke at or around the venue.

So you're mentioning urban environments here. Why did you settle in Lawrence. You seem content with an urban environment, and as a business owner, you could locate anywhere. Did you do any research before moving here, because you certainly don't seem to like the culture.

Yeah, I went to the university. Smoking still a problem there, no enforcement

I want to know where these large gangs of smokers are. I've lived here for several years and have never seen more than two or three smokers together at a time. What I can't believe is the author of this petition has nothing better to do but patrol these comments and defensively respond to all of them. Go write some code and lighten up. BTW, I'm a non-smoker, always have been, and I DO remember what it was like to have smokers everywhere in every bar and restaurant. Yes, it was irritating. But then again, so are a lot of things.

I lived with smokers most of my life - parents, college roommates, husband. I hate it. But this sounds ridiculous.

Mate is from Argentina, not Brazil.
