Outlaw cigarettes. They are deadly.

They cause cancer not only to the smoker but those around. I agree, let's completely outlaw cigarettes.

Are these the homes people are wanting to convert to personal care facilities?

I don't think it was that particular home, but the proposed home is a few blocks away.
