Atlanta City Councilwoman Joyce Sheperd, who is co-sponsoring a ban on smoking in public parks, said she was swayed to push the legislation after noticing “widespread smoking” during the Jazz Festival in Piedmont Park, among other locales.
“I’m amazed that people will smoke around children and not think twice about it.”
I’m amazed that parents would bring their children to the jazz festival and ruin it for all the adults. If you don’t want your children around smokers don’t take them to concerts or bars. Is there anywhere consenting adults can go without being subjected to a nanny state where the kids are in charge?
