TTS was classified by the Environmental Protection Agency as a Class A carcinogen; it is not merely just a nuisance! Anyone who is around TTS is a smoker. You are either the one lighting the cigarette or you are a “passive smoker.”
Taxpayers are paying the high cost of smoke-damaged public housing apartments, as well as the medical cost for children who contract asthma and adults who contract COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). Tenants and taxpayers should write a letter to apartment managers, housing authorities and health departments stating that TTS should not be allowed within 30 feet of these publicly owned apartments.
