Park policy should target kids’ health

Smokers know they’re cornered. There are few public places where they can smoke anymore, and at workplaces they’re usually shunted off to a remote corner of the parking lot to feed their habit. Even the great outdoors increasingly comes with a “No smoking” sign, as many parks systems now prohibit tobacco products along with alcohol. In Pierce County, Metro Parks and Puyallup parks are among those that have smoking bans with fines for offenders.
