  • LOVE IT!! But even though this sign was posted nearly 100 years ago, I find it funny, that people CONTINUE to take up the habit?! Knowing what we have publicly known for some 40+ years and with all the warnings and smoking prohibitions, WHY would anyone even START?! And lets not even talk about the enormous cost associated with it.

  • My personl view.

    Yes times are changing.. However the change I see, is regression. Regression in many areas: the return of isolationism, the return of xenophobia, the return of open & blatent discrimination.. etc.. Most under the guise of "morality" and "patriotism" (more like nationalism)

    These aren't changes I'm happy to see personally.

  • In the 30's, 40's, 50's smoking was in thing to do. You were a nobody if you did not smoke, just about everybody did. It was hard to find anybody who did not smoke.

  • Just replace "tobacco" with "pot" and we are on a roll.
