1I certainly would seek feedback from my constituents to see how they feel about it. I have never had it come up on one of my surveys as something that my constituents are looking for me to support.
2It's not right that kids get exposed to secondhand smoke and in some cases end up with lung cancer or asthma or other illnesses as a result. The City of St. Louis has some of the highest childhood asthma rates in the country. I don't think it's asking too much of people who are releasing carcinogens into the air to do so outside.
3I've smoked maybe less than a pack in my entire life, and I only did it to make myself stay awake in college when I had to study.
4My father died of cancer, which they did not say was smoking-related, but I believe it was. My mother died of an aortic aneurysm, which they said was brought on by smoking. There is no redeeming factor in smoking.
