Last week city counsel wasted hundreds of work hours(who knows how much did it cost for each and every one of us) to create law and break US Constitution once again.
I am talking about prohibition on smoking in parks and beaches of the New York city. It purpose in reality not just prohibit us from smoking but to divert attention of the public from real and dangerous situation with city environment.
Best example is in the Brooklyn Gowanus canal.
Level of poisons there well over lethal dose for any human being: Mercury over 100 time over acceptable limits, sulfate, oil, lead and many more.
What does counsel do about it? Exactly nothing, they vote to prohibit smoking in public places which create a diversion and outrage public screams about it everywhere. Meanwhile small post in EPA website goes unnoticed and soon to be forgotten.
