FYI: Passive Smoking is more harmful than Active Smoking. Smokers take in filtered smoke while passives smokers unwanted take in unfiltered smoke which contains more toxic materials.
When a person smokes in public he affects the health of many non-smokers. Some of the non-smoking crowd may be allergic to smoke or asthma patients or maybe suffering with respiratory or people with breathing problems. Some may simply find the smell offensive.

Ban on public area is perfectly correct.

Smoking is a disgusting habit it needs to be outlawed! By the way 99.9% of Vidorians are heavy smokers, damn rednecks.

according to me, Smoking is not good for health so, it's good to ban on smoking.
