Sounds like silly, excessive over regulation until you stop and consider all the other people on the sidewalk who don't want or shouldn't have to inhale someone else's cigarette smoke.

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Well, we're talking NYC here...not exactly where you go and expect to breathe fresh air.  I think this legislation is just more virtue signaling.

Great!  Not one cigarette since 2/9.  I hope staying "quit" will be as easy as having quit.  So far, it hasn't been difficult.  Time will tell.

Virtue signaling...

Is that the current conservative buzzword du jour? I know I'm not hearing snowflake and triggered much anymore, so I'm guessing they're no longer the current trendy fad words amongst the right.

But still, even if the air in NYC was as bad as you suggest, which it isn't, that wouldn't make it OK to make it even worse for people who don't want to breathe carcinogenic smoke.

Could you get busted for 'vaping'? What about those folks? What about the vapors with nicotine?

^LOL

When I moved away from the Indy area, the population was still less than a million.  I've heard and read things that claim NYC is less than pleasant for the nose.




E.B. White once said there are three New Yorks: The New York found in commuters, natives, and settlers. But what the great writer failed to mention is the fourth New York — the city's summer smell. Yes, if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere (especially in the summer time).

Sure, those three glorious months of open hydrants and Mister Softee is enough to get anyone to throw on some celebratory short shorts, but as always with NYC — there's a catch. Any Big Apple resident can attest to the unmistakable odors hanging heavy in the dense city air, wafting through the subway grates.

Imagining the sweet scent of summer rain? Nope. That's just the questionable drip from an air conditioner above your head. Mix that with the olfactory goodness of delicious streetside halal, mounting piles of garbage simmering in the heat, and crowded subway cars, and you've got yourself a sweaty New York summer.

I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

Not to mention the smell of stale urine in the subways.

One smell I noticed during the times I visited there, was this odd, prevailing odor that I can only describe as being similar to burnt cheese.

Not completely unpleasant, just strange.

As a now non-smoker, I'd rather smell cigarette smoke (which I don't like now; it's amazing how you get used to the smell while being a smoker and don't realize how much it stinks) than the homeless people.  Do they have homeless bums, drunks and drug addicts still on the streets there?  Why don't they worry about that problem instead of whether you are moving or not whilst smoking?  I'm surprised NY hasn't banned all smoking everywhere yet.

Even when I was a smoker I didn't like the smell of second hand smoke. The worst part is the raw, unfiltered smoke that comes directly off the lit end of the cigarette.

But as far as which other NYC smells are worse than cigarettes are concerned, I think the issue there is that unpleasant smells alone don't damage your health. Smells are not the same as actual smoke from burning leaves and paper that goes into your lungs and leaves traces of harmful chemicals.

Etc, etc.

When you look at it in the most logical light possible, there is no justifiable reason to NOT ban smoking in places where it adversely affects other people.

JMHO.

I think it's a pretty good term.  From Urban Dictionary:
 
To take a conspicuous but essentially useless action ostensibly to support a good cause but actually to show off how much more moral you are than everybody else.
 
This is pretty much a liberal thing.  I'd make a bet that whoever proposed this legislation was a Dem.  Their sense of morality is always so much superior to those other white people (you know, the bad ones, the deplorables.)  LOL

Congratulations Thor!  Way to go!  Thumbs Up  Feb 9 is my (deceased) Mom's birthday and after her trials and tribulations of having been a life-long smoker until she was forced to quit, she would be proud of you as well.  Big smile  I remember visiting her in the hospital and she was telling the nurses to never smoke.  Cry

Even though you think that remark was merely sarcastic, in reality your comment couldn't be more truthful. Something that is always surprising out of conservatives on the rare occasions that it happens...

I don't understand why people want to smoke "medicinal" marijuana.  Confused  Unless you're on your death bed.  I don't want any smoke in my lungs, or chemicals; even "safe" and "all-natural" pot is still smoke in your lungs.  Better to stick with pot brownies.  Wink

I guess the effects are the strongest from smoking it.

Just a guess, though.

It's the pigeon sh*t on a humid day. That stench will cling to your nose lining for hours. Maybe days.

Or the east river.

Growing up, the town we lived in sat along the banks of the Indian River which runs along the east coast of Florida. Back in those days for some reason, would occasionally stink to high heaven.

I haven't lived over there in years, but I think it doesn't stink anymore. Maybe it's cleaner or something.

A few years back, my neighbor in CA was having severe stomach issues that a slew of doctors and specialists couldn't figure out.  The only relief he could get was from pot.  The doctors greenlighted his use of it.  Hell, they weren't coming up with anything.  Finally. a nurse recognized his symptoms as being similar to her niece's, who had something called cannabinoid emesis syndrome, caused by a reaction to pot.  It's very rare.
 
My neighb stopped using pot, and within a month or so was feeling back to normal.  He'd lost years of his life due to the fact that his "medicine" was also his illness.

ShockedConfusedI actually saw a legal packaging for the first time the other day. In this case, the weed was balled up like a wood furniture plug. The recipient was SO HAPPY to have it, but not me. I developed an allergy to weed about 30 years ago. If I even smell it these days, I have to relocate. Darned druggies!
At least I'm not allergic to LSD, Thorazine, Crack, Seconal, Heroin, Opium, Beer...even when I mix them all together<wheeeew! Guess I'm safe - no red eyes, no residual scent>

As one of the few gals on here, I’d like to weigh in on this topic. The MeToo movement is out of hand - tartlets who slept their way up the movie food chain did not mind the casting couch twenty years ago when it served their purpose but now fast forward to today and those same skanks are suddenly pointing fingers using the media fallout to promote their waning careers - my question is - why the F* did you wait twenty years to report this supposed rape? Oh, yeah, that’s right, you were busy advancing your career and getting plumb movie roles. Also, very hard to believe these women when half of them dress in lingerie (or nothing) and post “look at me” selfies all over instagram.

As another one of the few gals on here, I totally agree with you.  Unless you have really been raped (female or male), there is no place for these accusations, and going back decades is ridiculous.

Oh, fer Crissakes.  Seems rapper Kendrick Lamar just won a Pulitzer prize.
 
As I've done before with rappers, I Google the guy's name + "lyrics", click onto the top website, and then click onto the first song.  This makes it as random as possible.  That is, no cherry-picking.  Then I post the lyrics.  In this case, the song is Is It Love?.  Here we go (as usual, lotsa niggas, hoes, bitches, guns, violence and the worship of wealth---I mean, very nice and all, but Pulitzer prize material?? LOL):
 
Sit still and close your eyes (smoke to it)
What's behind the other door? Oh-ohh
No more silence (no more silence)
Don't kill this thing we got called love (don't shoot)
Just searching for the perfect shot

[Chorus: Angela McCluskey]
When love comes calling, don't look back
When love comes calling, don't look away
When love comes calling, don't look back
When love comes calling, don't look away

[Kendrick Lamar (Angela McCluskey)]
I used to write rhymes all day and all night
When y'all was playing PlayStation, my pencil was erasing lines
My conscience only knew what's half-tight
At 3:14, it's time to get me a slice my nigga
This is a dog's fight my nigga
The soundtrack to life my nigga
Kendrick Lamar, his momma called him that
He watched House Party and ate Apple Jacks
He sold Sega games, his cousin sold crack
He pumped Reeboks, his uncles pumped packs
Punk fake, jump-shot, ball hit the back
Ball dreams of being point guard was off limits Jack
That's because these Compton streets was built not to win
You killed the nigga, I stole a bible, is that a sin?
Part of me though, I'm searching for answers (just searching for the perfect shot)
The good kid from the ugly city that's mad that he's had some
Where is the love?

[Chorus: Angela McCluskey (Kendrick Lamar)]
When love comes calling, don't look back
When love comes calling, don't look away (where is the love?)
When love comes calling, don't look back
When love comes calling, don't look away

[Kendrick Lamar (Angela McCluskey)]
Give me rings, give me chains mayne
Give me a blue Benz, red Porsche, red Range
Give me black bitches, white hoes, new clothes
A mansion with marble floors and security codes
Then give me some landa, or maybe I'll land a
G5, clear port, say hello to the man
Give me awards, Grammies, and let the crowd applaud
my name till they strain the veins in they vocal chords
Give me fame and fortune, me and Trump on golf courses
With that being said, give me Tiger's sports endorsements
Give me billboards, whatever that people would kill for
Manhattan at 40/40, no forties but rose poured
Give me vanity, give me Kurt Cobain sanity
Give me a city where Channel 7 newscasters' cameras be
Give me horror like Amity, no, give me the charts (just searching for the perfect shot)
And if you ever renege, I'll still give you Kendrick Lamar
This is me, and that's love

[Chorus: Angela McCluskey]
When love comes calling, don't look back
When love comes calling, don't look away
When love comes calling, don't look back
When love comes calling, don't look away

[Kendrick Lamar]
Now everybody smoke to it
for this is, the celebration
