The Maryland State Assembly seems close to outlawing smoking in all public buildings in Maryland.
I don't smoke and can't stand the smell. I like eating in restaurants that segregate smokers from non-smokers. Most times, 99.998% I'd say, I choose the non-smoking section. But sometimes, I choose otherwise. Be that as it may, if the State Assembly is going to outlaw smoking in all public buildings, they may as well outlaw smoking, period.
Smoking is not illegal. People are making a choice to smoke or not smoke. People are making a choice to patronize businesses that provide smoking sections or are entirely smoke free. Let people make their own choice. We are not stupid.
Again, the Maryland State Assembly is going too damn far. Next, they will go for smoking in cars and in private residences. Just watch. But they won't make it illegal, because they depend on the tax revenue.
