Daniel says, "(Smokers) should pick up after themselves but I'm a believer in the freedom of choice. If it bothers you then don't do it. If you don't want it around you then stay away. Smokers and non-smokers all pay taxes that go to create and maintain these parks. They both have the right to enjoy them. We as a republic have bigger issues right now anyway."
Ken says, "[I]f everyone wants it banned why not just make it illegal? I wish smokers would stay away from others and clean up after themselves, but the rest is their choice."
We appreciate everyone's comments and invite you to continue the conversation.
