Protecting nonsmokers in public places is a recent happening With a long history. flundreds of years ago in Colonial Massachusetts the General Co. passsed laws making it illegal to grow the weed or to smoke it in public in 1880 New Orleans adopted a ordinance forbidding smoking in the citys streetcars, in 1920 the South Carolina Senate passed a bill to make smoking illegal "during meal hours in any public eating place in the state" By the twenties dozens of states had other laws restricting smoking. I)uring the early decades of the twentieth century, in fact, there was even a Nonsmokers Protective League of America. The aims of the Leage sound remarkably contemporary, similar to those of todays lund association centers for nonsmokers rights organized by the American Lung Association. Here are the forsighted goals of the I,eague: ! The right of each person to breathe and enjoy fresh and pure air air uncontaminated by unhealthful or disagreeable odors and fumes is an constitutional right, and cannot be taken away by Legislatures or courts, much less by individuals pursuing their own thoughtlessness and selfish indulgence The league does not seek to abridge the personal rights of anyone, but does seek to awaken the sense of fairness in those who use tobacco and to impress upon them that they have not the right to inflict discomfort and harm upon others. It is but just that htose who wish to indulge poisonous vapors, and who willn ot voluntarily refrain from annoying or injuring others with the poison, should be restrained from doing so. The League's activities and laws to protect nonsmokers were wiped out in the late twenties when the number of smokers skyrocketed, just when the laws were needed most. Now, a half century later nonsmokers, backed up by research showing the harmful effects second hand smoke are again beginning to get the protection they deserve 000 Jerry Peterson MORE THINGS TO DO !
