New York - Outdoor Smoking Ban Goes into Effect Today
    #14498049 - 05/23/11 10:19 AM (9 years, 11 months ago)

http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/Outdoor-Smoking-Ban-Goes-into-Effect-Monday-122415979.html

The city's outdoor smoking ban officially goes into effect Monday, and violators who are caught puffing away at parks, plazas and beaches could get fined $50.

Smokers were getting their last puffs in at Union Square Park Sunday, though some were skeptical the new law would be effective.

"A lot of people smoke," said Michael Deleon DeJesus. "What are you going to do, hand out a million tickets in one day?"

Dennis White, also a smoker, told NBC New York, "I think in restaurants, in stores, everything like that, it's a good law because you're in a building. But outside, I mean, you got all the smog. What's a cigarette gonna do?"

City health leaders say it will protect New Yorkers from secondhand smoke in what they call family-friendly places.

Mohamed Hussein said he and his 7-1/2-month pregnant wife support the smoking ban.

"We just don't like smoking in public," he said. "I have a baby right now. I don't like my wife standing near a smoking person."

The city plans television and print ads to get the word out about the ban but for the most part is relying on the public to enforce the law.

Yay for smoking Nazi's.  This whole secondhand smoke thing is really misguided.  I think you get more lung polution from car exhaust than a tiny smouldering cigarette ember.

I love to smoke cigars, I am very considerate never to stand right next to someone downwind and puff away.  That is all smokers need to do, no neo-fascist laws needed.

They already hand out a million tickets for "public display" of marijuana. I'm sure the fine Nazi cops of NYC would gleefully do the same for smoking cigs outside.

That's nice that you do that, but there is a large percentage of smokers that just don't give a fuck, at least where I come from.

Yeah, I have to agree here, smokers really don't get the full effect of stale cigarette smoke smell in the vestibule of an apartment building. I've heard a few smokers say "Really? I don't smell anything."

That doesn't mean that you can ban smoking outdoors cuz of some inconsiderate people.  Just ask them to move next time.

I'm a considerate smoker, and I don't want to be harrassed and ticketed by police.

Please this is a stupid law. You'll get non smokers who will complain, how It's such a bad and disgusting habit but who knows maybe people find thier stupid habits disgusting. Maybe I should bitch that people who have the disgusting habit of biting thier nails off or talking with thier mouths full or chew with thier mouths open or blow thier nose in the middle of a resturant and get those banned as well, people are too fucking bored.

Do you folks ever stop to think that maybe all of this "second hand smoke" malarkey is completely trumped up to support the insanely huge (and growing) taxes on cigarettes? Do you realize that the government profits more off of cigarettes than the "evil tobaccos companies" do? Do you not have a problem with this?

Blown out of proportion completely. Second hand smoke doesn't do shit, you're living in NYC for christs sake, go tell all the factories and motorists to stop production. See how that works out for you.

For fucks sake, a person is outside smoking what do you want them to do? Go inside and die for CO2 poisoning.

I'm a smoker myself, so this might be a bit biased, but if you don't like the 'smell' of cigarette smoke so much you're going to lobby laws for it, man the fuck up you pussy ass faggot.

That is all.

Second hand smoke is a real danger if your a growing child, who, say, lives with two parents that smoke all day in a closed up home. THAT is when second hand smoke is a danger...people who you see on the street who freak out when the smell of a cigarette even gets near them...yea they are the dbags who support this kind of legislation :gd_icon::peace:

If you're sober right now and some *ahem* chemicals are not affecting your judgement, you're fucked in the head.
