    I’m worried about safety. When drivers are smoking and I have to walk or drive through their 2nd hand smoke, I feel anxiety and very unsafe..Is it time to outlaw it?

    I don’t smoke cigarettes. I smoke pot. It shouldn’t be an issue for you. Since it’s legal in more and more states.

    No health hazards either. According to Stoned magazine

    It must be terrible to live life in such a paranoid state.

    How about outlawing flying j pizza. I don’t eat pizza to get a digestive tract cleanse.

    No.

    If anything I should be dead growing up in a leaded paint house with varnish and 100 year old death trap by fire wood in three stories.

    Or going around some of the heavy industry with the asbestos. One of my elementary schools was closed specifically because of that material and we ran around in it for years.

    Let's not forget my life long association with steam. You learned to deal with the cinders when the engine has a sort of a cold depending on the combustion patterns now and then. I actually have lime powder and cement damage inside my trachea near the lungs. It's verifiable by MRI from trucking in bulk with that stuff. Lime in particular. That's my kryptonite. They called me spaceman what with the kit I had to wear to filter the air while unloading that stuff. I should be happy it's not powdered lead or something outrageous.
