    Default Something has to change with the cigarette smokers

    Really sick of standing in a security line with no place to escape and having to breathe a cloud of fucking nasty ass cigarette smoke. Or chilling in a great spot on the lawn when some dickwad smoker lights up and the breeze blows that nasty shit at me and I have to fucking move. Or hanging out in a tent and five idiots right around me are having a fucking smokathon and I fucking can't take a breath.

    All you ciggy smokers can suck my cock. I hope you enjoy it.

    NOTE: This does not apply to pot smokers -- please continue to blow that stuf my way.

    Yeah, I sympathize with you. Cigarettes are nasty. People really shouldn't smoke cigarettes in the tents.

    I guess that's the risk you take going to an open festival like this.

    I saw a lot of electronic cigs this year. I used mine all weekend and didn't smoke a single cigarette.

    i dont care for pot nor cigs but if i had to breath one in over the other I'd choose weed cause it's literally easier for me to breath in and doesnt smell as bad in my opinion either.

    I politely request that you stop attending the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. That or learn to think and behave like an adult.

    Sincerely,

    We have a beer garden. How about a Smoking Garden? Policy should be Smoking is tolerated only allowed within the smoking gardens and at the purpose-built EDM stages like Sahara and Do-Lab

    People smoke on drugs at music fests. It will never change.

    They told me not to smoke drugs but I couldn't listen, didn't think I'd get caught and wind up in prison.

    As an ex smoker, you might want to try something like this.
    Grow some balls, get up off of your ass and ask the smokers to either move or to please put it out.
    The way you handle this as shows and your post clearly proves that you are spineless and lack the testicular fortitude to ask for even the simplest things in life. If it was between any smoker and me taking a breath, I garranfuckingtee you that I would not have to hold my breath.
    Please.....man up dude....you are an embarrassment.

    There are bigger fish to fry.

    I'd rather see efforts to implement some type of code of conduct.

    There also should be some type of change in the trash policy. It's great that there are trash cans for specific types of waste but they are not big enough, people are not replacing the bags fast enough, and there are people that don't give a shit and drop stuff while walking.

    This new trend of entertaining walking sticks are eventually going to become a problem as well. You just can't verbally communicate with one another like I've witness people do over the past 10 years?

    Why are people having me empty my pockets and taking my glasses off at the main entrance while people in camping are bringing out blankets, stepping stools, and hula hoops?

    How about a shush barometer on the sides of the stage? I'm tired of listening of who hooked with who and now so and so is pissed off while trying to listen to an artist's set.

    The beer garden next to the Sahara is too small. It's full in between sets, but it turns into kaos after an artist completes their set.

    There should be a night crew who's specific job it is to work with local police (if not hiring them outright) in coordinating exiting of the parking area. The guys waiving us in during the afternoon have no credibility at night.

    As Pete said, a courteous request goes a long way. I watched this girl next to me tap a guy on the shoulder and asked him to take his hat off. Your not going to believe what he did. He took it off. You come at people with your 99% I hate America wearing beard and holding your gluten free burrito with an attitude of entitlement, then you might not get what you want. I'd try communicating before asking for more rules.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    It's about etiquette. Some people don't want to breathe that shit in. Just ask em if they can blow their smoke upwards. Some folks can tolerate that shit health wise or some people get drug tested at work. Just have some fckin etiquette you junkies and blow that smoke up over the crowd. Most junkies are cool if you remind them politely. If that doesn't work that apply violence if you're man enough or move away if you're the better person. Whatever is appropriate.

    Nothing has to change except to you to maybe stop going to outdoor concerts. My gf doesn't like cig smoke either but she puts up with me smoking all weekend (one of the few days of the year where I am a smoker) and my friends smoking and every other attendee who decides to light up. She understands she is at an outdoor festival and complaining about it would just make her seem like a twat. Much like yourself

    Why do people light a cig take one drag off it and then let it slow burn to the filter while holding it right next to someone face? I hope they all get throat holes that constantly leaks puss in the near future.

    yeah people smoking outside is just awful! my goodness.


    I noticed there was barely anyone smoking anyways. When I needed a lighter I only ask people who were smoking and the few times I had to find someone it took forever.

    I normally try to be super respectful with my cigs. I try to smoke at the back of tents if they aren't crowded, I hold it above everyone in crowds so that I don't burn anyone and I always blow my smoke upwards. I even put all of my butts in my back pocket. This year I brought my girlfriend for her first time and we shared cigs when possible to cut down on any of our neighbors discomfort.

    But if any of you dickheads come up to me and ask me to put out my cigarette, be prepared to get an enormous cloud of smoke blown into your face!

    Cigarette smoke makes my nose itch, my eyes water, I start coughing and eventually get nauseous. WIsh I didn't have such a strong reaction, but I can't really control it.

    I don't mind moving to a new spot when sitting and listening to bands, but in a super crowded tent, it just seems rude when people light up - there's no where to go unless you push to a new location, which is also rude.

    One awesome dude who noticed that I started coughing and put a hankerchief over my mouth, actually put out his cigarette.

    fetuspinata sounds like a very reasonable person.

    I like how everyone labors under the fiction that weed smoke is magical and non-carcinogenic, but fuck cigarettes.
