Letter writer: Silver lining found in vapor trend

Graphic by Lori Deaton

As one who views the (vile) habit of tobacco and cigarette consumption as a detriment to the greater good and a steady contributor to the litter problem, I did consider one silver lining after reading Mountain Xpress’ article on the vapor inhalation trend [“Foggy Frontiers: The Rise of WNC’s Vapor Industry,” July 15] — perhaps the number of butts being tossed to the ground on an endless basis will start to decrease!

    No, and why should they? When far left zealots try and regulate behavior of adults, they tend to not see cause and effect. Keep tossing your butts in the streets folks because banning smoking in bars where gasp, no one complained or had issues because it is a bar and litter wasn’t an issue, should’ve never been voted in to begin with.

    Take your greater good mentality and please do us all a favor and stop it. I don’t need it nor does anyone else with half a brain. That is a complete 180 from freedom, choice, and business. If cigarette smoke keeps people like you away, that does serve the greater good. Of everyone who is tired of people like you.

    Litter the hell out of this town. with butts.
