Just because the non-smokers of America are more populous than the smokers, doesn't mean that smoking should be banned just to please them.Firstly, being in High School and being surrounded by smoke after school isnt even a little bit pleasent.
i really feel that smoking in public places should be banned, because not only is it harming the health of smokers, but also the health of others around them.
in my opinion, smoking in public places, especially places with a lot of people is a pretty selfish thing to do.
What I think they should do is just go back to a smoking section with air vents leading upwards and away from people in the smoking section, making it less likely that if a door is opened to the smoking section, that smoke will go out.
Also, businesess are not losing a little bit of money, there are bars that have been there for years all around me that are being completely shut down.
Many countries today have laws that prohibit smoking in public places because it affects non smokers as well.
This damages their health against their will and could cause them lung cancer.
i find that second hand smoke is very annoying, because everytime i walk past someone smoking, i always feel that i have to hold my breath.
smoking seriously harms people's lungs, but so can second-hand smoke. i meant "yes of course" The problem with designated smoking areas is not alway the public, but also the employees.
All because people will not go there because they cannot smoke.
Obviously, the cloud of smoke exactly disturbs other people; especially non-smokers feeling.
