I wouldn't ban it. The latest regulations on smoking kind of frustrate me and I'm not even a smoker. I get annoyed because I feel like sitting and chatting to friends who are smokers, and I don't mind the smoke. Irritatingly, whenever they feel like smoking they now have to walk five miles down the road.

And like, if I was to ban it what would you do? Think I was a fat gay person and that I was just doing it because I am jealous of you?

Smoking kills. Unfortunately, it takes years. Keep up the habit.

Oh that's a tough one. You see not only are the businesses and smokers affected, but so are the employees. I think that it is fine to allow smoking if you can guarantee that no employee has to go into the smoking areas. Over all I am for the smoking bad in my province, basically smoking is fine outside, or on uncovered patios.

Yes I would. Smoking kills - it kills people who don't smoke, it kills people passively, it causes damage to children who don't have any say in the matter. Smoking was banned in my country over a year ago, and I didn't realise how much it had changed my life until I went into a restaurant in England and nearly choked in the smoke. Most smokers are very selfish, and still smoke even if they see no smoking signs.

If I had that power then, I not only ban smoking from public place but from the world also. Can you tell me what are the benefits of smoking? I also think a person should push behind the prison if he/she smoke in public place. Because he has no right to play with public's health.

No I wouldn't ban it. It should be up to the invididual business owner to decide if he wants to allow smoking or not in his establishment. The government shouldn't have a say in the matter. That way if non-smokers don't want to be around a smoker they can go to their own places and vice versa.

yeah, i would ban it. i'm not a smoker. and i believe that if you are a smoker you should be responsible enough with your smoking habits. there are people around you who doesn't smoke so, it's just reasonable to have put a ban on smoking from public places.
