U.S. Proposes A Ban On Smoking In All Public Housing

6 posts in this topic

It's for the "children".  This will go over well! I'd like to see them enforce that one. Maybe they'll have a contingent of smoking police patrol with cigarette dogs? I know cigs are bad for you, but doesn't the government have anything else to do? How about stopping the drugs in these projects?

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro said Thursday the proposed rule "will help improve the health of more than 760,000 children."

Nearly 1.2 million public housing units would need to become "entirely smoke-free" under a new rule put forth Thursday by Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro.

The proposed rule would give more than 3,100 public housing agencies 18 months to ban cigarettes, cigars and pipes in all living units, indoor common areas and within 25 feet of buildings. The ban would also apply to administrative offices.

The change would add nearly 1 million public housing units to the more than 228,000 units that are already smoke-free, according to HUD.

Announcing the proposed rule Thursday alongside Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy, Castro cited both the health risks of smoking and the costs of preventable fires.

They "major on the minors", don't they. Not only do they use children ("minors", lol) as excuses for micromanagement, but they also ignore the far greater problems, most of which they caused themselves. Another day in the US.

We've lost more rights because of the "children". It's a sign that the nanny state is alive and well, we all have to suffer this because parents don't want to take care of their kids and it's collectivist thinking gone wild. Everything has to have a fence around it!

Shouldn't be a problem...poor people can't afford cigarettes anyway at 6 bucks a pack.

This is most likely a squeeze play like when they threaten to turn off EBT cards.
