Monrovia Considering Smoking Ban in City Parks

There will be an open Community Services Commission meeting to discuss a proposed ban on smoking in Monrovia parks at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 27 in the Monroe Room of the Community Center at 119 W. Palm Avenue. For questions, call Tina Wells at the Monrovia Community Center, 256-8234.

  1. fantastic!!! Will that include people smoking pot at the library park?

  2. Could the Council worry about real issues instead of complaints by few, who won't disclose who they are?

    Just how much bigotry do we need in this country?

  3. I would note here that I have had asthma all my life. I have been in several ER's for it, as have my sons.

    If someone says a mere waft of smoke puts them into fits, I believe they emote instead of think, and moving a few feet would solve the "problem".

    I should note that I worked hard to overcome the limits of my lungs, so that I could run marathons in my late 50's

    You can be a victim or not.

  4. how does the banning of smoking in a park become an issue of bigotry?

    Why can't I enjoy the park without a bunch of smoke in the air. The law isn't stopping you from enjoying your smoke elsewhere.
