Isn’t it sad that law is necessary for individual protection against
something harmful to the thin, delicate lining of our respiratory systems? ========= You worry about a few hand full of individuals who
CHOOSE to smoke and destroy their lungs, While it is sadder still
that the State Legislature and many citizens refuses to do anything about the
poor air quality that effects each and every living soul along the Wasatach
Front the exact same way...
So according to this letter, smoking cigarettes is bad.But breathing
in for months, air that is more toxic than cigarette smoke isn't worth
fixing?Talk about hypocrisy! Does the right really feel no shame
with this pathetic excuse for logic?
LDS Liberal,You are engaging in deflection. Are you implying that we
should do nothing to discourage tobacco use until we solve temperature
inversions? Air quality is a serious health issue all along the Wasatch
who's solution will require time, money and personal sacrifice, but we need
not ignore other public health problems until it is resolved.
@HemlockSalt Lake City, UTLDS Liberal,You are engaging
in deflection.==========No, I'm asking why we
are addressing a minority issue, while ignoring the Elephant in the room
to all 100% of us...
Comparing E-Cigs to smoking is apple and oranges, the addictive ingredient is
the same, but those thousands of other compounds created by burning make them
completely different animals.Think Smoking opium vs taking a tylenol
3.If E-cigs help people quit smoking or relieve stress great, cause
they don't make you stink, I can stand next to someone with an e-cig and it
doesn't get on me.
