Still in a Fog

It turns out vaping wasn't as safe as first thought.  Some places are banning or restricting availability, and that's probably not a bad thing.

Are we doing anything new to curb "traditional" smoking?  I know some places have upped the legal purchase age. 

Pennsylvania has some pretty weak laws when it comes to smoking in public places.  I have no problems with what you do in the privacy of your own home, but if your activity becomes a danger to others, it has to end.

You have to walk through a cloud to get in to some buildings.  Casinos have floor space dedicated to smokers, but it still drifts over in to the "clean" area.  Bars that don't sell much food sneak in under PA's law.

Second hand smoke is a proven health issue.  Smoking causes billions in losses to the American economy.  Yet, vaping has emerges as the new public enemy number one.
