Letter: No smoking in city parks, playgrounds
To the editor of THE EAGLE:
Tysen Unique Edwards makes terrific points in his June 15 letter "No smoking in city parks, playgrounds." Second-hand smoke is dangerous at any level, and contains over 7,000 chemicals. Not only are children being exposed to smoke at city parks and playgrounds, they are also learning that smoking is OK because they see grown-ups doing it.
We don’t want our children exposed to second-hand smoke, or to smoking, especially when they are participating in healthy, outdoor fun. For our children’s health, support the ban on smoking in city parks and playgrounds.
The writer is project coordinator, Be Well Berkshires.
