hmm, this is kind of a touchy subject, apparently. i think it is good to have some guidelines for smoking in public places. but it is true, pretty much everything around us has the potential to kill us. everyone has a right to choose if they would like to kill themselves slowly over time by smoking. i would prefer if they didn't do it around me so i can avoid the second-hand smoke.

I have to agree with sylvrrain. If you are going to ban smoking because it might be bad for you then there are many other things you'd have to ban as well. I say might because nothing with smoking is a 100% proven. Not everyone who smokes has health problems. You start with smoking and remove that one, then what is next? Coffee, chocolate, sugar, cars, computers (it can cause eye strain and carple tunnel), music...anything can potentially cause us health problems or hurt us. Once you start with one it is really easy for the government to move on to another. Take away one right at a time and before you know it, we have no rights what so ever.
