Swing set smoking: Derry considers a ban
You don’t hear that phrase anymore. People still smoke, but the question is not asked. They just light up, even around strangers, the elderly, little kids. It’s their “right,” they seem to be telling everyone.
No kid is going to get cancer from the mom whose cigarette smoke blows around the swing set. The exposure is too small. But children and non-smoking parents should not have to breathe the offensive fumes. That used to be understood. Now it takes a government regulation to enforce. How sad.
