Jose Blanco was one of the people we missed at this year’s busy trade show, and that’s something that has been bothering me ever since. So when I heard he was going to be in the area doing a blending seminar, I made a point to grab my handy GoPro and brave Atlanta traffic to […]

These smoking bans are getting to more and more draconian. I thought we were five years away from an full ban on smoking in a single family home somewhere, now I wouldn’t be surprised to see it sooner.
Constitutional ban is right around the corner…
The guy was right, where does it stop? This looks like prohibition all over again. It reminds me of the movie equilibrium, where people were banned from even feeling emotion…
The key to these things is civil disobediance. Just ignore the law and don’t pay any fines.
Come on what the fuck.
isn’t the high tax enough on us!
but this is more towards Cigarette smokes, but it
still effect us cigars smokes.
freakin people trying to tell us what to do, some bullshit.
Welcome to “Commiefornia!” Another B.S. law.
This is out of control. Basically people are saying the rights of one, out weight the rights of others. I am not surprised that people don’t like cigarette smoke, it has way too many chemicals in it. That is why I will not smoke them. I like my products 100% natural. Banning this in a park and golf course is taking it too far just like banning it in your own home. I pay the rent/mortgage and YOU are going to tell me that I can not enjoy a LEGAL product in my home. Get the funk out.
Being a non cigar smoker until recently, I can understand nonsmokers desire not to inhale second hand smoke. If lived an attached townhouse or condo, i’d complain if my neighbor was blasting their radio too loud at all hours of the day. Just because you have the right to do something doesn’t make right. A lot of people just lack common courtesy. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think the government should be telling people what they can and can’t do in the privacy of their own homes, especially if it’s legally smoking cigarrettes or cigars, however, people should be respectful of the people around them.
Maybe if non-smokers actually took the time to sit and talk to a smoker whose smoke is bothering them then it wouldn’t have come to this.
How many times have you been smoking your cigar and its bothering someone but instead of asking you to move or to try and work something out, they don’t say anything and only give you nasty looks. Or when they do find the courage to speak up how about talking to me like an adult and not lecture/judge me like I’m a 4 year old. I have a mom/dad, I don’t need any others.
I have no idea my smoke is bothering anyone unless you approach me in an adult manner instead of acting like my smoke is gonna kill you on the spot.
These people need to get over themselves already…
In an ideal world all you would have to do is ask politely, but I think it becomes confrontrational for some. In any case, I only smoke in my backyard and when I’m with other cigar smokers. If I’m any where around non smokers, I just don’t smoke. Cigar smoking is my stress relief and personally I don’t want to be worried about if I’m offending anyone or not. Just my two cents.
I’m glad I moved out of Belmont 2 years ago. I hope everyone renting an apartment in Belmont will move to another town. We’ll see how long it takes the landlords to appreciate this ban.
Also, I hope the state does not pay any more monies collected from cigarette taxes to Belmont. If they don’t allow smoking, then they should not benefit from the smokers.
