I believe that a smoking ban in public places would be good for the smokers them selves and the people around them. If you put a ban on smoking in more public places I believe that the amount of people smoking would go down by a lot. This would limit them to smoke in only certain areas. Which may cause people to stop smoking. This would be safer for the children so they are not around it so much. Also you could raise prices on cigarettes so people might stop buying because of the price. Also If you listed the factors of smoking around places more people might see that and start to quit smoking too. Raise the smoking age limit up to 21. Also having more rules for the cigarette companies to make them a little healthier. That is my stand on smoking.


First of all, genetics (and cell splitting mutations) play a bigger part in cancer than environmental causes.

Secondly, there have been no actual unbiased studies that find second hand smoke causes any harm to anyone other than being annoyed by the smoke!
