SAHA to ban smoking in public housing


To the list of places where smokers no longer will be able to light up — government buildings, parks, restaurants and bars — public housing residents in San Antonio soon will add one more: their own homes.

The San Antonio Housing Authority plans to impose a new policy in January that will prohibit residents from smoking indoors or away from designated outdoor spots at all 70 of its public sites.

I agree with this, but with a twist. I am not a Wiccan but I am a firm believer in the Wiccan Rede. "An it harm none, do what thou wilt." However, I draw the line when you used public money to do it. Call it an invasion of privacy or what ever you want. People receiving public assistance should be randomly tested for drugs, alcohol and nicotine. I can't afford to supply my own vices, I damn sure should not be responsible for theirs. Quit taking public assistance and support yourself and you are free do do as you wish. Cigarettes are $70 a carton here. How can they afford to smoke? Easy, we are paying for it. I say bullshit. Test them and take away their support if they fail.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

The owner of the building / apartment sets the rules imo.

Agreed and well said Kreeper. cheers.gif Whats just as bad for me is funding the military industrial complex. They are the biggest recipients of welfare in the country and those involved are also the wealthiest.
This is a real no-win situation for most people right now, that's not going away soon. They are still attempting to keep the illusion of a status quo alive in the face of impending disaster. gaah.gif Leaving this to the "professional politicians" as our glorious leader put it, is no longer a viable option.
They've had their chance, and all they did was pander to banks, big pharma, defense contractors and drug companies.
