Banning Smoking: Liberalism At Work

Liberals claim to support legalizing pot while passing bans on toacco smoking:

Smoking cigarettes and other tobacco products in Seattle's parks became illegal on Monday, as the U.S. Pacific Northwest's largest city joined other American metropolises in restricting puffing in public.

Seattle's Parks and Recreation officials voted in May to ban smoking in all of its 465 parks. It had previously required smokers to maintain 25-feet minimum distances from other visitors in any publicly accessible park land, the city said.

On Monday, the city, on its website, encouraged park goers to "smell flowers, not smoke."
Their support for legalizing marijuana is not based on freedom, but their own addictions.

An astute observation Clayton.

As far as I know, smoking pot anywhere in public is illegal in Washington, as it is in Oregon.

So I don't see much hypocrisy there, in terms of the law.

but liberals are working hard on getting pot legal.

In the 1970s, I would leave parties when they started passing around "funny cigarettes." Some people objected. I'm surprised there isn't a movement to ban leaving parties early without a license.
