Suggests ban on public smoking


I am tired of getting on the bus and sitting anywhere in proximity to a smoker, or even walking on a public sidewalk adjacent to or downwind from one and smelling like an ashtray for the rest of the day. This is aside from the toxins and carcinogens I inhale and the ubiquitous litter of butts. I propose that it be illegal to smoke in public, period! Non-smokers, it's time to take back our streets and our right to breathe, as much as possible, clean air.
