As far as banning smoking in public places,I can't think of a better idea. I often think as I sit in clouds of putrid smoke that smokers have a choice when and where they fill their lungs with toxins. However, when they smoke around others, they are filling everyone else's lungs with toxins as well, people who don't want to be anywhere near the stuff. It's selfish to smoke around other people because you remove their personal choice to stay healthy and breathing free. Chris Butler
Hi, I am in favor of the smoking ban. Especially since there is much proof that second hand smoke causes cancer to those who have never even smoked. I was a smoker many years ago but am so thankful that the Lord took that and many other things away from me without so much as a thought or want for another one when I became a born again Christian! My Mother died from cancer (she was a chain smoker) and my Adopted Father died from lung cancer (another chain smoker). I personally wish everyone would just stop smoking altogether but since that is not going to happen, then I welcome the fact that I have the right to breathe clean air when visiting public places and hope that this law goes in to effect everywhere. Thank you for the opportunity to voice my opinion.
It is a great idea. The areas they have for smoking and non-smoking are not far enough away from each other to matter. As a non-smoker I have to hold my breath when passing the smokers.
