Re: bann on public smoking
The thing is, when people smoke in public, both groups of people lose: the smokers, because they're killing themselves slowly with their cigarettes, and the non-smokers, because they're inhaling the waste, which is even worse. The smokers do have the right to choose if they will smoke or not, but the non-smokers deserve to choose to inhale the crap. I am not for total bans on public smoking, because that's not fair to the smokers, but I think that smoking should definately be prohibited inside public buildings like restaurants and the like. I think smoking directly in front of the entrance/exit to places should not be allowed either.
