Re: “City Council Snuffs Smoking on Church Street

I am very disappointed in the way that the City of Burlington and its businesses have decided to shun us smoker’s and take away our rights as human beings to make our own choices. Everywhere I go now it’s no smoking, no smoking. I’m outside for crying out loud! Well, you aren’t making me want to stop. Quite the opposite actually. The stress of having my Civil Rights taken away is making me smoke more. I pay taxes and contribute to the economy too. I understand that people don’t like the smell of it but honestly there are worse smells and worse issues out there on the streets of Burlington to deal with so why are we smokers being targeted? This is just like the segregation that occurred during slavery.
Tobacco products and alcohol are a huge part of the economy. The sales provide lots of money from the taxes that are placed on them. Does the state really want to lose all that money?
We are people to and we have the right to decide what’s right and wrong for us. So why are the nonsmokers choosing for us? That is totally ridiculous. And a total invasion of my basic human rights. I don’t try to make people who don’t smoke smell my smoke. I don’t make any choices for anyone but myself.
People who don’t smoke get cancer all the time. Cancer will affect most people in some way no matter what they choose to put in their bodies or the lifestyle they lead.
