Cigarettes aren’t allowed in parks. It’s not really enforced very well, but it’s been on the books for years

Huh, well, this prolly won't be enforced very well either. Everybody wins!

Except the homeless people and people of color who will be the ones that get the brunt of that enforcement. I don’t think there’s been any follow up on how much or little they’ve enforced it in parks or the large section of downtown that banned smoking so maybe cops just haven’t done anything with it. But I’d bet good money that the majority of tickets probably aren’t students, tourists and white collar workers.

Maybe they’ll actually enforce it for cigarettes too. That’d be wonderful.

I’m not sure it’s really great to have more policing for something that’s a minor annoyance at worst.

Just say the word policing and having limits on what you can do becomes unreasonable right? Or, idk, you can set a limit and expect people to abide by it. Like adult humans?

I don’t think restrictions on smoking in public places is unreasonable. And you don’t need an armed cop to enforce it. Someone could come by and say “hey smoke at home okay?”

I think a city with real and legit public safety concerns and quality of life issues devoting energy to enforcing a minor annoyance that does no real harm would be really wasteful.

Cool, difference of opinion then.
