Thank you for asking if it’s ok to smoke around others but that was absolutely not our experience the end of October this last year. More than a couple time we had someone get within 10 feet of where were already sitting/laying out and light up and exhale directly towards us. It’s rude! I don’t want to ban smoking either. Some of you smoker folk are some of the funnest tohang out with. It’s ok if you choose to smoke. It becomes not ok when what you want directly and negativity effects me. It gives my wife a headache and that’s not cool!
