It’s been a few months now, since the Denver smoking ban went into effect. I realize now, it’s saving me money. No longer do I have to take some sort of allergy medication before going out, nor do I have to immediately shower off, when arriving home (who wants to go to bed smelling like smoke, if you’re a non-smoker?) and no longer is my first task, that next morning, to wash everything worn that night.
Despite all this, me being a non-smoker, I still am not sure how I feel about this ban. I mean, this really sucks for the smokers. Should they have to suffer just because non-smokers put up a better argument? After speaking to some random smokers and non-smokers, I can’t really get a good handle on the overall opinion of this ban. A few out-of-state friends have asked about it and how ‘we’ like it. I’m not really sure?
But, I’ll tell you what, I like being able to go anywhere in Denver and not smell like an ashtray at the end of the night. Sorry, smokers.
