In favor of legislation prohibiting smoking in public spaces
To the Editor, I smoked many years ago and I make no judgments of people who smoke. I believe people have the right to do what they want with their own bodies. That being said, I also believe no one has the right to make a decision for themselves that affects my body or anyone else’s body. I have asthma. It’s gotten a lot worse over the years and cigarette smoke is one of my major triggers. I appreciated several y...

For me that means an early start on spring in at least one regard. I don’t have to...
