Do you think that smoking should be banned? Do you think that if it should, it COULD? State your opinion (I expect smokers and non-smokers to state their side).

I think smoking should be allowed in some places but in places where there are those who are allergic should not have smoking..public places like restaurants are not a good place for smoking because a wide variety of people come to eat. Many come to enjoy themselves and relax and if they are choking due to an allergy to smoke ..they would have to leave. Smokers can always walk out to smoke..but once the smoke is in the restaurant, those who are allergic must stay out. So in restaurants I say that smokers should wait till they are outside to smoke.

Good point of view. Allergies are very dangerous. I know this, because my mother, father and grandmother are all doctors. I know what THIS allergie can lead to.

well i dont necessarily think smoking should be banned as some people find the habit hard to give up. i do admit i am a smoker, i think there should be areas where the smokers can go and different areas the non-smokers can go. that way everything would be fair and no one would be discriminated against, whether we are smokers or not!

It is one's choice, wether to smoke or not. You are right. There should be places for (non)smokers.

i'm a smoker and i do so by choice. with that being said, i also understand the implications of second hand smoke in relation to health. non-smokers shouldnt be exposed to smoke, it isnt their choice. i'm agree with restaurant banning. i dont want someone telling me i cant smoke in the comfort of my own home, however.
