Not sure how big of an issue this is in other countries but here in the states smoking bans are starting to pop-up all over. Being a non-smoker myself I have a bit of a different out look on the situation. As far as public property is concerned, I believe it should be just that property that is owned by the public. Therefore the public should vote or publicly elected officials should vote and let the majority decide. Were I believe the politicians have crossed the line is when you have privately owned property, Bars and such, were smoking is now prohibited. Shouldn’t it be up to the owner of the establishment to say weather or not they want to allow smoking on the property they own.
