Question:

Continuing with last week’s Reader Poll about the new smoking laws going into effect throughout Las Vegas, this week we turn our attention to the penalty if found guilty of smoking in the wrong places. According to District Judge Douglas Herndon, the fine for illegal smoking will be a civil penalty of $100 per incident. This week’s Reader Poll asks, do you think this is a fair punishment or not? What is your Opinion? Why or Why not?

Reader Poll Replies:

My opinion is that any fine should be a lot more, keep those nasty smoking items to yourself at your own home, I am tired of having to put up with that dirty habit of others.  Glenda V.  TX

*   Its a lot of money! But its the best way to get things done what works more than grabbing into peoples pocket! Anyway lots of money!  U.G.  Germany

*  The penalty should be as high as possible, maybe even $1,000 per incident! Smoking is despicable & disgusting; if you're not allow to do it, you should be fined heavily! I, for one, do not want to breathe some ones else's ugly habit!  Terri Spiegel  Lantana, FL

*   Seems to be too small a fine to be a of any consequence. Here in Canada it is between $1000-$2000 in some areas. We seem to have 100% compliance (some are still whinning). How can one justify smoking? Who likes second hand smoke? Hasn't it killed enough innocent people so far? I bet in the future it will have criminal implivations!  Brian Rickard  Ontario Canada

*  $100 for smoking the wrong place seems fairly reasonable. Stepping it up for habitual (pun intended) offenders would make sense though. Fat cats probably won't blink at $100 per incident, but having that fine climb $50 for each occurrence over 2 might get their attention, over time. Jeff Frank  Plymouth, MI

A fine is good, jail is better.  Why in the 21st century do we tolerate a person standing next to you poisoning the atmosphere.  This is insane, the product, deadly cigarettes, should be removed from society, just like the old type of Freon and any other products deemed a hazard to society.  Dr. Phillips   NY
