Frist,  I have yet to see a area were smoking is permitted even marked, let
alone one as convenient as may be found.  Nor have I seen a outside area
marked off as the no smoking zone.  Not that that is a big problem for me as
I find smoking in a crowed a pain.  I have to watch were I hold the
cigarette so I don't burn someone, or they brush up agains the lit end and
put a hole in their garb.  Also I try not to blow smoke at anyone.  So for
me the fist part of the kingdom law listed above is just what I try to do.

Now, as for the last part, I don't care what the king or kingdom law say's
at lest as it goes for my pavilion/home etc.  I and not the king desieds if
my guests need express permission to smoke or not.  That being said, I
should make note that I feel that it is my responabilty to ask before
smoking in someone's pavilion/home.  Most of the time I don't asks and just
go outside.

I am also one of the people that field strips and drops the non tobaco
part(s) in my pouch.  (I really need to find something to put them in when I
get a new pouch).

Now if it was His Majesty, and only if it was His Majesty, that was smoking
than I would say that the law has been changed as the king should be the
frist to up-hold the law.  If the law has not been changed then the king is
ether unware of the law or does not care about it.  Ether case is a sad
statment on the Crown and another subject.  I hope it was not the King.
