Smoke Free

 It's now illegal to smoke in federal public housing.  Don't ask me how this will be enforced, but that's another story for another time.

Mixed feelings.

You should do as you please in your own home, as long as you're not hurting anyone, but in this case, you're only renting.  Smoking is not only dangerous, it increases maintenance costs, and we all pay for the upkeep of public housing.

Once again, the USA and Pennsylvania are a study in inconsistencies.  You can't smoke in your own home, but you can smoke in casinos, certain bars and private clubs-- where others are exposed to second hand smoke, a proven danger.  You have to wear a seat belt in a car, but you can ride without a helmet on a motorcycle.

You can now get your hands on larger fireworks, because the state needs the tax money.  More and more states are legalizing recreational marijuana, as states drop the legal blood alcohol limit.

I don't get it.
