I hate cigarette smoke as much as the next guy, but this is just wrong. You let your local government pull this crap and then what's next? That soda you're drinking isn't healthy, that twinkie you like so much has to go. You can't wear hammer pants anymore. You can only have government-approved thoughts. You can only read what we tell you. That poker chip habit of yours is a problem, going to have to ban that too. Oh, and NO DANCING!

What's crazy is this is the next town over from where I grew up (Gardner MA). Hopefully the good people of Westminster don't permit this overreaching by the Board of Health and also get those idiots booted from the board and replaced with someone who has common sense.

Board of Health can try whatever the hell they want . . . government is in LOVE with their sin taxes, so this is a non-starter. You cannot smoke in restaurants, planes, businesses, public transit, theatres, cars that have kids in them, buildings, etc. BUT DON'T STOP SMOKING !!! We need the money . . .
