The New Smoking Laws - when?

Recommended Posts

If any of you had a choice of breathing cig smoke or carbon monoxide from motor vehicles when you go anywhere you would all be better off breathing in the occasional bit of cig smoke, asthma sufferers are far more at risk from air pollution caused by deodrants cars, factories aereoplanes and so on, am i right to presume then that all you anti-smokers people are going to stop driving, takeing holidays abroad and actively campaign to shut down all the factories & the most serious causes of air pollution to help ?

 

 

I take your point about other forms of pollution. However, you can't compare the hassle of not smoking in public to the end Western civilisation though. You are free to puff away at home to your hearts content.

Why should I endure carboxyhaemoglobin because you are too weak to kick an addiction?

 

 

You shouldn't so, returning to my original question. why not ban the sale and use of tobacco and put 5p in the pound on Income Tax? Sounds good to me:thumbsup:

im easy on the subject really

 

being a sort of smoker :D

 

i do understand tho that it is the only drug that interferes with other people tho, normally you drink or take a drug it affects you only, with smoking it affects everybody around you

Industry & transport is a necessity.

 

Inhaling carbon monoxide second hand from a drug addict is not.

Not all transport & industry is a necesary, If anyone was passonate & serious enough the main causes of air pollution, occasional cig smoke would be the very last thing on the list if at all, BTW I have kick the habit but I am not jumping on the band wagon of all these silly anti-smoke people saying oh you're killing me with radiation.

there has been a smoking ban in Glasgow since march, its great, going out and not feeling yuck in clubs and defo better when you get home and not stinking of fags!

 

there are few downsides:

Everyone goes outside and stands smoking, you then spend half the night with noone as everyone smokes!!

It does look quite a sight seeing everyone outside and cannot be good for any citys image!

hear, hear....am with on that one....the angle of passive smoking is a cop out...that's the governments excuse to champion the no smoking ban. thing is they have to focus on health promotion to back up all the standards of the national Service frameworks they have introduced. smokers pay more tax than any other group of people today, they would be in a sorry state if not for the tax on cigarettes. so whilst they want to reduce smoking related illnesses(they cost money) they are certainly not wanting to decrease the amount of revenue brought in from smokers in terms of the tax paid on cigs. so what do they do....say it is bad for the non - smokers to have to put up with the smokers....how thoughtful of them to consider the minority of people who suffer breathing problems becuse they spend all day in the pub with the smokers.....

Question. Will it cover Casinos? I thought private clubs where exempt. Does a casino fall into that catagory. I used to play poker a few times a week but as a non smoker sitting in acloud of smoke for 6 hours was too much to keep doing.

 

yeah, casinos non smoking too, I think the only exceptions are hotels, if I remember correctly.
