Ban public housing is my first choice. Second - if you can afford cigarettes you shouldn't live in pubic housing anyway.
But AF is right. See where this is going indeed.
The storefront we rent has apartments upstairs. One of them had two single Moms sharing a place. They got into a spat and ended up calling Family Services on each other. The Mom that didn't move out is a smoker. When they came to interview us about her habits, they specifically asked if she smoked inside with the child there.
I asked if that was illegal now, and the 300 lb apple shaped 25 year old government worker literally narrowed her eyes....creepy as hell.
The thing is - this was a trap. Her former roommate called them because she would go outside to smoke when the kid was asleep. That's apparently a sin against the state now. Even though I have lived in houses where I was farther away from my sleeping kids being inside than she was when she went outside.
