Seriously.
Its 20andfucking11.
Unless you have been smoking since like 1968 you really dont have an excuse for that idiotic shit, and I shouldnt have to deal with your gross ass cigarette smoke, you pantsniff.

Stupidest fucking habit in the world.
I could understand someone getting into heroin easier than I could understand someone picking up smoking at 18.

At any rate, keep that foul shit out of the crowds.

Even though I smoke, I agree 100%! I always go outside of the tent when I feel the need to light up. Here's how I deal with a fellow smoker who just doesn't fucking get it. Politely asking someone to smoke else where seldom works. Being rude and asking them to get the fuck out sometimes works but there is always a risk of needing to get physical. Everyone around here knows I'm not about that. So being the talented person that I am by having a musical butt hole with the ability to fart on command, I usually have no problem running a smoker off..... without even saying a word. Just smile, aim and fire.

With my allergies, I hate smoking with a passion. I don't go to bars or clubs that allow smoking, and I won't visit a person's home if anyone smokes in it. But I don't get too riled up if the smoker at an outdoor festival is considerate.

1) Blow smoke up, as people have mentioned. You have no sense of smell or taste due to your habit, but the non-smokers around you do. We don't all want to share your cigarette.

2) Choose dancing OR smoking in a crowd. You're a dick if you do both. Same with weaving through the crowd to get closer or leave a set. Put out your fucking cigarette before you make your move. I already hate you for making me move. You'll probably get the elbow if you are smoking.

The sinus infection isnt from any smoke, it's from the dried horse urine & horse poop.

while i agree it is quite inconsiderate of people to smoke in big crowds, i also think it's not worth crying about. unless you have some bad allergies or asthma (in which case you probably shouldnt be at coachella anyway), just man up and deal with it.

that being said, i used to give my friends shit about it here and there, but realized it's pointless so gave up.

It's weird to me that people don't think about this.
Blowing my smoke UP.
Making sure I don't burn anyone (I saw a grp coming and moved my Cig, when they bumped past us I got burnt a little but they didn't)
Putting it out if I see any kids is just habit anywhere. I don't care where I am if kids show up the Cig goes out.
Flicking my Ash I always make sure it goes on the ground not on anyone. If it's so windy it will blow I kneel down and rub the ash off on the grass.
And putting it out I always make sure it's completely out so some poor barefoot guy doesn't find it and hurt himself.
Also I'll check the breeze before I light up in a Tent and if the air isn't moving I'll just wait.
It's a nasty, stinky habit but I try to make as small an impact on other people as I can.

Oh, I forgot. It's stoner holiday. Because smoking any other day in California is considered taboo.

And I agree with most things in here, except OP.

Blow the smoke up, don't ash on people and move on. I hate weed smoke, so I move. If a group is smoking a bowl I don't tell them to move and lose their spot, I just stick it out. I hate the smell and I hate the plant, but if it's unbearable then I'll move.

Same with cigarettes. I sometimes wait for a long time to get a good spot, and have a smoke. I ash it between my feet, blow up and try my best to have no smoke go near anyone. Of course if someone has an inhaler out and they are wheezing to death I'll move. But honestly, instead of bitching at the people who smoke a different plant than you, just move or deal with it.

San Francisco is definitely the worst about smoke though, no question.


Hey, I was born in 1960. Let me show you how we do it!

pot and music go together so I'm glad you bashed cigs only which ironically i too find disgusting. My girlfriend is so short that even if she blows up still below any guys head. sorry if you were next to the couple smoking non stop joints : )

There was a group of hippies slightly down the way from us during either Lauren Hill or Erykah Badhu (can't remember which) waving sticks of patchouli incense.

Personally, I like patchouli and thought it was awesome, but that is one clingy smell. I'd totally understand someone asking them to cut it out.

As for the cigarette thing... I'm a smoker, and I try to be as considerate about it as possible. Whether at a concert or not, I always make a point to get out of the crowd/ask the people around me/blow up/whatever the situation calls for to not be an asshole. It's not that hard to be polite about it. That being said, there are also plenty of douchey non-smokers who make a point of seeking out smokers to be dicks to. It's the worst when they glare and exaggeratedly cough or something. Sorry, but if I'm seated and you walk in to my cloud of smoke, it's kind of your fault for not diverting your path to one that doesn't cross with someone who is demonstrably smoking a cigarette. Ain't going to apologize for that.

Wow, each post I've made in this thread I've said specifically I don't like it, but that's my PREFERENCE! I don't care if everyone around me smokes, I'll move! But, it's common courtesy to let people do what they want. I don't tell them to stop or move because I don't like it.

But then I am attacked because my preference is tobacco? Wow. Calling me a tool because I simply enjoy the taste and smell of tobacco over weed? I don't smoke cigarettes often, if ever anymore, but once in a while I enjoy it with coffee. I must be a total bitch, huh?

No where did I say weed was wrong, simply that I don't like it. I don't get it, at Coachella people offer me bowls and I refuse but say "Thanks so much, it just makes me anxious". I politely refuse yet I always get a reaction like I'm a total dick.

I truly don't get it. I'm as open as I can be about it, but it's just a personal preference. I'm done trying.

I have both allergies and asthma, and I've been to seven Coachellas. The suggestion that I shouldn't be there sort of bothers me and is really uninformed. But I agree that trying to stop smokers from smoking when they want to is a fool's errand. It's probably just something that we'll have to learn to put up with, unfortunately.

In all fairness, there has been less smoke each year I've gone to Coachella. The first couple times, in '05 and '06 the clouds of smoke *outside* the tents were so bad I had to wear a bandanna and my inhaler got a lot of use. This year it wasn't much of a problem.

...

The weed doesn't bother me at all.

Actually, tobacco doesn't bother me as long as there is fresh air. However, cigarettes are not really tobacco, are they? There is a difference between a good cigar or pipe tobacco and cancer sticks. Walking by a cigar shop, the smell is very nice, but most cigarettes smell like burning something you scraped off your shoe! :puke

It's absurd to sit here and complain about cigs when weed can be just as annoying. Take out the health factor cause anyone claiming to be a health freak pot head can go preach to someone else. Get the fuck out of here with that whining....

But.... Even though I smoke occasionally when I drink, I am considerate and I do go out of my way to make sure most of my smoke does not affect another individual. The same should go for the pot heads.

I really dislike cigarette smoke near me/in my face, but I don't usually mind people doing it if they're somewhat considerate (which they often just AREN'T). One solution I've found for me personally when in a crowded tent/not willing to lose my place, I just tie/hold my bandanna around my nose/mouth (cowboy status) for a couple minutes. It doesn't bother me, I don't have to make a scene, and I don't have to breathe the smoke. :)

The security was like...damn man this shits heavy on you...and he was trying to look over at this cop two lines down...the cop was busy so the guy kinda just let me go. I have some super stealth pockets in my backpack...velcro bottom flap inside...so you can empty it out completely and shake it upside down and it appears empty with no drugs....heheheheh little do they know.
I think they do know but they don't care...cause if he wanted to take it the cop would take it from him. If noone is around those yellow shirts will bust dorks and keep it.

I don't care what you're smoking, just blow that shit UP you fucking inconsiderate morons.

Seriously. I fucking hate smokers. (cigarettes. I would be hypocritical if I say I hate ALL smokers, because I smoke weed.) Actually, that seems a bit harsh, I hate inconsiderate smokers.

I have no fucking idea why anyone smokes this day and age. There are so many facts and tests and everything else that proves how deleterious smoking cigarettes are for one's health.

I have friends who smoke, for literally no apparent reason. My friends can be so hypocritical when they smoke.

Smoke is smoke and just because it's weed doesn't make it acceptable.

I do agree that being considerate to others is important and would never smoke in a crowd.

I'm a smoker and was amazed by the number of people who crawled out of the woodwork to bum smokes off me every night because they had a few drinks.

Probably the same people who during the day would give me a pissy look because I smoked a cigarette within ten feet of them.

And Probably the same sort of people who would start a stupid thread like this.

I have no fucking idea why anyone smokes this day and age. There are so many facts and tests and everything else that proves how deleterious smoking cigarettes are for one's health.

all those facts and tests dont account for the fact that it just plain feels good to take a nice drag sometimes, especially when intoxicated.

Personally... I smoke a lot of weed, and rarely smoke cigarettes. The smell and taste of cigarettes is sick to me... but I'm pretty much used to it. Every once in awhile, when I'm drinking, around people who smoke, I go through a few. I never encountered anyone smoking in the wrong. It's an outdoor festival, for jeebus sake. I hope they say no cigarettes next year, so when the people who bitch about it now smell it, they'll go nuts. This blunt's for you ; )

Oh man, I stood at the gate for 7 and a half hours with a small supply of water rations. Every someone lit up a cigarette, I wanted to punch them in the face. It makes the air so so dry, and we were all sweating like mad. I couldn't believe it. And then they start begging the security guards for water.

Are you.... fucking kidding me? YES! NOW AND ALWAYS! Did you miss... say.... the 50's through 2011? I was only there for 24 years of it, and I've known for a long time that smoking has been considered "cool" in certain circles that meant absolutely flushed shit to me. Anytime you get a group of people, they will all eventually do what pleases them. Many people, "cool" people, people who once considered themselves cool, and got addicted, people who just plain got addicted out of something they picked up from friends, many people smoke cigarettes. I don't like it blown in my face, no, but I'm also not going to shit on someone for lighting up in a crowd. There are ways to make sure it bothers people as little as possible, and maybe this is your gripe. You think that the people who are smoking should be more considerate. It has nothing to do with how many hipsters there are! It mostly has to do with how many oversensitive people you have in comparison to how many inconsiderate people you have. Me... rolling around with a blunt, I got asked by people for hits as I went through, as I stood there enjoying the show. I understand perfectly how bad cigarette smoke can be. Try placing bets inside the bar at Del Mar Racetrack when horce racing starts this year! You'll be happy that Coachella is an outdoors facility, and hopefully quit bitching.

I don't care who you think you are. You can feel free to smoke when I stand in front of you, three minutes before the show comes on, but I'd take your head off with a clean cross chop if you thought you were going to bully with your cigarette. Showing up three minutes before a show, trying to get a good spot, IS EXACTLY WHAT IT'S ABOUT. Sometimes you have to catch one show before trying to catch one, and it comes out a bit late. Who are you to push people around with your cigarette smoke? I don't even mind smoke, but I know I'd destroy you if you thought you'd puff at me, or burn me, or anything with your little lit stick. I apologized to people this year just for thinking I may have stepped on them, or come close. You sound like a fucking prick. You'll never catch me sitting in the middle of a show, waiting for another show to come up, but you'd also never catch me allowing ANYONE to ash on my head without them catching NDS (Near Death Syndrome).

As someone who does not smoke cigarettes I am very much in favor of people smoking cigarettes. Without cigarettes it would be much more difficult for people to get away with smoking joints.

If you are packed into a crowd you should not be smoking a cigarette. If you can do lunges and not hit anyone, smoke away.

I agree with you here Gregor but it is pretty fucking nasty when I'm in a tent, usually it's the Sahara, and a cloud of cig smoke gets blown in my face. And the closer you are to the stage the harder it is to avoid such clouds of nasty cig smoke. I smoke cigs at Coachella sometimes, but always go towards the back of the tent and blow my smoke UP in the air. I actually do this with ganja too. It's just all about being courteous and not blowing smoke on other people, whether it's the good stuff or cancer sticks. But for the people saying that cigarette smoking is a disgrace and shouldn't be allowed etc., just shut up and quit being such a pussy. You're at a music festival, people are going to be smoking!

As someone who does not smoke cigarettes I am very much in favor of people smoking cigarettes. Without cigarettes it would be much more difficult for people to get away with smoking joints.

And as far as blowing ganja smoke; fucking let that crowd rip across a few faces and see the folks grin with envy.

All smokers should stand up and blow up. Cigs and/or pot.

I'm a cig smoker, but I try to be aware of my surroundings. I'm always in the back, even if I'm not smoking. If there are a lot of people surrounding me, I will move to a more open area and still blow the smoke up.

I will NEVER blow directly in someone's face, and I hope you ganja smokers would do the same thing. Not everyone likes pot, and unfortunately, for me, if I inhale enough of it, I will get dizzy and nauseated with the possibility of throwing up everywhere. I really don't think you want me throwing up on you during a show.

All you pot smokers are asking the cig smokers to be more considerate, but there's a lot of inconsiderate weed smokers as well. It irritates me that I have to move somewhere else because your group decided to sit in front of me when I was there first and smoke your weed, so the smoke goes in my face. And because I have to move away from your smoke clouds, you're inconveniencing my friend(s) because we wanted to enjoy the show together.

Unless you have been smoking since like 1968 you really dont have an excuse for that idiotic shit, and I shouldnt have to deal with your gross ass cigarette smoke, you pantsniff.

Stupidest fucking habit in the world.
I could understand someone getting into heroin easier than I could understand someone picking up smoking at 18.

At any rate, keep that foul shit out of the crowds.

Isn't the walk from stage to stage enough time to smoke a cigarette? Smoking in a crowd full of people just seems like an obnoxious and dangerous thing to do. Of all the things I've read, this is the only aspect of Coachella I'm not looking forward to. =(

I thought 2010 was terrible regarding the cigs because they were giving them away for free and it was SO crowded. I didn't see a problem ( or just didn't experience) one last year at all.

03-07-2012, 08:52 PM
2011 was the first year they didn't give away free cigs at least since 07, I never went before that so I wouldn't know. I smoke every once in awhile, usually only if I'm drinking but I always smoke at coachella. Between the drinking and all sorts of party favors and the fact that it's outside makes it really easy to smoke all weekend. I haven't always smoked so I always make sure to blow my smoke up and I'm barefoot so I make sure to water bottle my cig butts as well as my friends. If someone has a problem with me smoking outside at a concert they can move, I'm not doing anything illegal and it's ridiculous that people think that they should be able to control whatever I do while watching a concert and enjoying myself. I personally don't really ever smoke weed but every concert I've been to you're constantly smelling herb. I expect it and wouldn't dream of telling someone else what to do at a concert when all they are doing is enjoying themselves. There's absolutely no difference between cigarette smokers and herb smokers except one is illegal (though it shouldn't be) a little common courtesy goes a long way but beyond that I don't owe anyone else shit. If any kind of smoke bothers you that much move spots or go to indoor concerts, people have the right to smoke outside if they want.

no one, save for a handful of of people, have died from second hand smoke. it is one of the biggest scams in our history.

If you smoke indoors, the second hand smoke is an extreme health hazard to anyone living in that building. Will it kill you? Probably not. But if you have asthma or any kind of respiratory illness that shit will fuck you up. That's not a scam or a myth. Breathing someone's second hand smoke outdoors is more of an irritation, not really a health risk.

I smoked for ten years. During those ten years my opinion was pretty similar to a lot of the smokers in this thread. But once you quit and your sense of smell returns you begin to realize how truly disgusting the habit is. I had a lot of fun smoking cigarettes and for the most part I have no regrets about it. One regret I do have is not being more respectful to those around me who didn't partake.

JustSteve
03-08-2012, 02:37 PM
sure it can fuck you up, i don't dispute it can cause short term problems. but the whole tagline has been that second hand smoke kills, which is basically not true. calabasas outright banned smoking outdoors anywhere in the city. that is just fuckin' retarded.

i sit here on the lung transplant list with my lungs functioning around 40% of normal. sure i don't like the smell of smoke, but i am not worried about being around it, especially outside.

03-08-2012, 02:54 PM
Yes, the anti-smoking ads are ridiculous. The ones where they imply that dogshit is one of the main ingredients in cigarettes is my personal favorite.

But this thread isn't about that or public health issues. Bottom line is that smoking cigarettes in a crowd is no big deal to smokers but unpleasant for non-smokers. If anyone wants to enjoy a cigarette in my vicinity and are careful to blow the smoke in the air and dispose of the butt properly, no big deal. If you want to chain smoke through an entire set or push your way through the crowd with a lit cigarette running into people and burning them, then that's a problem. If I turn to the guy standing next to me at Coachella and spit in his face, he's probably not going to die. He will be angry and disgusted and will probably wish I'd not done that, but he will live. That doesn't necessarily make him a pussy.

I won't cry about it. I'll talk shit to you and let you know what an idiot you are if you burn me or it's bothering me.
Otherwise I don't care and I don't expect a smoker to have respect.
For some reason shitty tobacco is twice as bad. Blends, palmal, cloves, newports are the worst.

I only stopped smoking in July, so the smell of a camel light isn't so bad.

At least you can't get fired from your job for 2nd hand cig smoke. 3 days of 2nd hand pot smoke may be enough to show up on a Drug Test. Some professions/industries practice a, "Random Drug Test Policy." I'm not going to complain about someone smoking pot. It's a festival. I'll DEAL with it whichever way I can.
