i think it’s super bourgie and obnoxious that suburban hospital is a “smoke free campus” and that they are SO GODDAMN PROUD of themselves for it. wow, so, you’re smoke free to the point that visitors and people who work for you, including doctors, can’t even smoke in their own cars in the parking lot. i’m sorry, but it’s not upon you to outlaw smoking until our fine and responsible government does it for real. a lot of people smoke, and a lot of poor people smoke, and you outlawing their ability to this while they work for you or visit their families does nothing to fix the problem of smoking. if you care so much about people’s health maybe you should invest your clearly burgeoning endowment on smoking cessation programs (specifically targeted for the sick and the poor). is that such a novel idea???
i swear to you, bethesda, maryland, will be the first town to outlaw smoking within its boundaries. it’s not such a stretch—montgomery county was the first county to outlaw trans fats.
good thing it’s unincorporated~~~
