Marcy, NY (WIBX) – The New York State Parks system is reviewing public comments about a controversial no-smoking ban in select areas of parks and state historic sites.

We asked our listeners whether you think that smoking should be banned from public parks and national historic sites.

Here is what you said:

38% said Yes

25% said Yes, but designate specific areas for smoking

38% said No

From our Facebook page:

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.
