Smoking Ban Links

Nicotine Nannies claim smoking bans are good for business. But if that were the case, could this list exist, and could it be so huge? (Please note, this is only a small sample of articles available on the subject.)

St. Margaret neighbors upset over smoking ban

Monday, September 3rd, 2007

Peggy Silvasy, a Delafield Road resident, on Monday signed a petition to lobby for a smoking shelter on the St. Margaret campus.

“They’re in front of the house all hours of the night,” said Silvasy. “Let them go back to the hospital and smoke.”

All 18 UPMC facilities on July 1 went smoke-free, clearing the campus of smoke, ashtrays and cigarette butts scattered about. That sent nicotine addicts into the neighboring community, walking the streets to have a puff.

At the same time, it enraged residents who now say they are being suffocated by strangers and their second-hand smoke.

(IĀ understand them being angry about cigarette butt litter, but “suffocated” by someone smoking on the street? Hyperbole, anyone?)
