There have been plenty of articles lately about the legalization of
marijuana yet nobody seems to be talking about where people will be
allowed to smoke. I smell it nearly every time I'm walking in my
neighbourhood and it's not even legal yet.

We have made such great progress over the past 20 years limiting
cigarette smoke. Remember when people used to be able to smoke in
restaurants and on patios? Most of us are so happy to live in a nearly
smoke-free environment.

Now I am very worried that when pot is fully legalized, the smell will
be everywhere.

I presume there will be limitations similar to using alcohol, but that
won't be enough to keep the smell out of my airwaves. I'm fine with
pot being legalized. I just don't want to have to smell it or breathe
the second-hand smoke.
