As a former smoker I don't feel sorry for the cold smokers. In my province of Ontario smoking has been banned on outdoor patios.
It seems rather crazy even now......
It is amazing the amount of heat those put out too. Heat = energy = $$$
Well the global warming this excess is helping to create make make it obsolete in a few years? Puts a nice warm light on the patrons for photographers, though.
I don't like people smoking inside or outside or anywhere. I was walking on the jogging track one early morning at KLCC park before work, 3 smokers puffing away standing on the jogging track. I can see smoke from far surrounding them; it is Pathetic to destroy the little fresh air in the morning in the city.
