Allegheny County Housing Authority bans smoking at five sites

http://www.post-gazette.com/news/health/2014/10/03/Allegheny-County-Housing-Authority-bans-smoking-at-five-sites/stories/201410030178


A total of 330 units were designated non-smoking as of Wednesday, according to the county.

According to the county, the authority has had three fires with damages exceeding $1 million in the past 12 years, each caused by smoking. One of those fires resulted in a death, the county said.

It also costs twice the amount to clean and paint a smoker's unit, versus one occupied by a non-smoker, when the unit is vacated, the county said.

Tenants will gladly adhere to the new policy.
Does this apply to crack, also?

We got them here too. They spend their time protecting the drug dealers that infest the projects.

Doing drugs is still ok though.

I like the idea of sending the message that if you live on the government's dime, you live by the government's rules. Or taxpayer's dime and rules, either way you want to look at it that makes you feel warm and fuzzy.

The people who live in these places, are not known for making such bad life choices like smoking, are they?

Depends on where you live ......

In Maryland I think smokes are $6+ a pack .... get more expensive as you go north.

Taxes, ya know!

Good to seem the ban smoking in public buildings.


Smokers suck!!!!!!

No, it is true ...... they have to suck to get the smoke down inside their lungs!


If you'll suck on a tube of burning plant material .... you will suck on anything!

If you are on welfare you become Government property, so enjoy Uncle Sam's Plantation.

The same place they get the money to pay for their "rent-a-rims" and weekly rental big screen tv.
