    Why do our local governments allow cigarette smoking in front of so many of our government offices? I think our local officials need to take some kind of action limiting tobacco use at taxpayer buildings and other government properties. I hope some of our local officials read this and will get the topic started. Thanks

    John, as I understand it smoking is prohibited within 20 ft. of any government building's entrance. On another note, we were at Texas Roadhouse the other evening and some folks were smoking away from the outside waiting area. I was amazed at how far the smoke traveled. They were doing what they were supposed to, but mother nature didn't seem to be cooperating!

    CD, Thanks you for your reply. I heard there's a 20 foot rule, but I believe local officials can enact more stringent rules for government buildings and properties. Everyone knows tobacco smoke is a known airborn carcinogen, the danger is real. I feel our local officials should lead by example by making all of our government offices and properties tobacco free. Their actions would help make people healthier, lower fire risks, and also create a safer environment. Little changes can make a hugh difference. Thanks, John

    John, all government buildings and offices (vehicles too, although not as strictly enforced) are smoke free. Trying to get everyone to quit smoking is nice but not that easy to do.

    CD, Nobody is trying to get people to quit smoking..There's just places were it should and should not be allowed. Do you really think banning tobacco use on government property is that intrusive? I would think if you asked the majority (which are non-smokers) if it would be acceptable, they would agree. Cities and Countries ban alcohol in public places..so there's your template! Thanks.

    Is Brooks now the mouthpiece for your disgusting local governing bodies or something? People don't go to those meetings other then government employees and gold diggers looking for contracts.
