damn, just when everyone was hoping to legalize pot and be able to just get high at home.....
turns out that it's only people living in government housing projects that won't be able to toke up......so you'll be ok.
I have no problem with any laws that restrict smoking as long as we don't completely criminalize it since we can see that hasn't worked so well with other drugs.
We have laws that restrict smoking applying them to our homes whether rented or subsidized takes restricted a bit too far IMHO.
They are poor ... therefore we can dictate their lives as much as we want.
Good luck enforcing such a law.
When those are apartments other people living nearby have to deal with the second hand smoke, and people living in subsidized housing are much less likely to be able to just move away.
How about we require the owners to install filter systems? That would allow not only the cleaning of smoke but other airborne bacteria
House is one thing. Apartment another. At apartments, smoke wafts internally and it can differ based upon wind and open windows and such. It could be hell on nonsmoking neighbors.
Do you honestly think that people living in subsidized housing could afford that? I'm assuming based on your posting history here you wouldn't advocate using tax dollars for it.
thats what they get for being on govt assistance. don't like it? get off govt assistance.
LOL, people want to live off the government and expect said government to not encroach on their lives?
Yes I would advocate that.
Say hello to socialism.
They are poor. They can't afford a home. Give up smoking and the $$ that goes with it, and you can move into your own non-subsidized home. I like this plan.
Another conservative who supports the nanny state.
I'm sorry? I'm not sure what you are assuming about my position, but I don't support any public housing at all.
I don't have to assume anything, as you spelled it out clearly in your post.
Hold on, don't most landlords already prohibit tenants from smoking inside their houses and apartments? Who actually smokes inside anymore? That's dirty.
To be fair smoking is banned indoors in my block of flats, so I'm not sure I see a big issue.
Landlords can restrict their tenants from smoking, using contracts. No reason the federal government shouldn't be able to do the same when it effectively the landlord. The only difference is landlords enforce this restriction using contracts and security deposits, while the federal government has a few more powerful tools.
