Well it was just an example. The air you breathe alone can kill you. I can totally understand not wanting people to smoke in restaurants or enclosed public places and that's more than fine with me (I dont smoke inside my home, I smoke outside on my patio) but outside away from buildings... I see NO reason at all to ban an entire city from smoking 'outside'. That is the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

And that's all I have to say about it because obviously I'm the minority here and the odds are against me. So my vote is for 'against'.

They should ban it inside, and I smoke sometimes too.
But they shouldn't ban it anywhere else, like outside.

I think to make it easy, cigarettes should just be banned. no smoking at all. save on health costs, & litter, brush fires...
the only proven use for them is they kill you.

For indoors at least, I reckon it's a no brainer.. it's generally the minority inflicting the pollution of their habit onto the rest. Hard to believe restaurants in some places still allow smoking, that's just criminal. Bon appetit.

Anyone enjoy kissing smokers?

Would be good to outlaw smoking during pregnancy as well.

Btw anyone ever read that Stephen King short story, The Ten O'Clock People?

Stupid, allow smoking indoors and outdoors, if you don't want to be around smokers then go to a non-smoking restaurant. They may kill you but people should have the right too smoke them.

I'm against. Especially if we're talking about banning smoking outdoors. Sorry Big Brother, I won't go down without a fight on this one.

As for banning smoking indoors, I think that private businesses should be able to make their own policies.

For the record, I don't smoke.
