Pro

MLG_Pingu forfeited this round.
intellectuallyprimitive

Con

My opponent forfeited, but I will succinctly provide the basis of my case.

Enforcement - Enforcing this ban would pose an arduous participation from law enforcers.
Fiscal - Enforcing a ban would be costly.
Public Capaciousness - Regulating the ban in all 'deemed" public domains is almost impractical.
Copious amount of current smokers - Millions of individuals currently smoke. Enforcing this would appear difficult.

Still not as bad as smoking in public and making other people directly breathe in your smoke.

Illogical. Earth is closed system. In general, all the particles on earth will stay on earth. If I am in private property and smoke, all those smokes still stay in system. Whats the difference if Im polluting air from private or public property? It still gets equally polluted.
