Excellent...a step out of ignorance, filth, and sickness.

Now stop endorsing right-wing extremists views.

E-Cigs have no tobacco and the user inhales/exhales water vapor. How can you make these illegal? Or is power something West Lib is desperately seeking?

Smoke your stink log in the privacy of your own home sick-o. Your poor children have to suffer that filth...but ours do not.

Ban smoking in ALL public places!

ROTC should be banned so there won't be any protection force to call when right to work businesses exploit the work force.

This is known as Actos Rios which is making something legal, illegal and this is illegal. The only thing made in America is tobacco products. The original anti-indoor smoking act was created by Al Gore and someone else which made mention of having a place that people could smoke. This has gone way to far. We are addicted to tobacco now. Your making a stressful situation for tobacco users. You are saying hateful things to us. We are addicted. There is nothing illegal about tobacco except your opinion. If we were black would you ban us?

How WL thinks they have the authority to ban smoking OUTSIDE is beyond me. Cigarettes are still a LEGAL product. BTW, I am not a smoker. Just goes to show that when enough people agree anything can happen. In this case they think they are doing humanity such a great service. As for human right and a free country, not so much. Oh, does this mean they are going to ban the smoking of pot too?

Things could turn around and smokers could sue you for causing undue stress on us not to mention people being hateful to us. You just have to have someone to hate. This is so mean spirited.

But they welcome homosexual "couples" at their bed and breakfast on campus. They didn't seem to care much about offending a lot us grads. So I'll keep my money in the future they can get their donations from the homosexuals and anti-smoking nazis.

Maybe they should ban sex on campus. It would stop abortions and unwed mothers from having babies. Or ban Trojans. lol. teasing that is how crazy and mean this law is. Just plain mean spirited.

These are supposed to be educated critically thinking people. The only look at one side of the issue. What happened to debate? What happened to self esteem? This is disgusting and degrading to smokers who are addicted. Even when we go to the hospital we are humiliated by doctors who smoke by the way. This is prohibition and discrimination. Did you ban beer? no. You can't make something legal illegal.

I for one am sick of this and wish someone had the guts to stand up to the abuse of power of a few people. I am a veteran. All they give us to eat at the VA it turkey. Turkey dinners, turkey sandwiches. turkey turkey turkey. Enough already. I want a large coke and a greasy hamburger. They even took the fat out of our food. What right do they have to do this?

One more thing. Did you ever smell a football player after the game? They tried to ban alcohol in NY many years ago and it didn't work then. What makes you think this will work? Do you plan on putting smokers in prison? I think you need to rethink your issue is weak and self serving. You need to really think it over before you get sued for discrimination.

It is called equal rights for all. This is not equal rights. Maybe you want more prisoners for your Private prisons to work for slavery wages. Yes I am angry. You didn't think out the situation.

Now I feel better but who listens to the people anymore. Nobody. It is not about us anymore. It is abuse of power. When 3 or 4 people can dictate to thousands is not on the same playing field. It's your wrong we are right and you are out. No give and take. All take. All one way. That is just wrong. If a marriage was like this then there would be no marriage. The End.
