    There's already laws about it, that's why the bus company CAN do it. The laws say the private company has power over their property, which means their busses. But we already knew private businesses had this sort of power, does the public have it too?

    The question here is really: does the public have the same control over public spaces? If they do, then they can pass laws saying where you can or cannot smoke, if they don't, they can't. I'm of the opinion they do.

    The owner of a property should be able to decide if that property allows smoking.

    I would ban it all together personally but that will never happen.

    I'd restrict to anywhere but designated Smoking Areas or in your home. It's fairly disgusting walking behind someone who smokes; because you can smell it from a good 20 ft behind them.

    Can people stop posting that fatass? Watch his other videos, he gets offended too.

    The reason why people are so 'offended' by smokers is because second hand smoke can kill too. Smoking KILLS people.

    Why can't the smoker move? It's not my fault that HIS smoke is blowing in my face and I doubt the wind is going to stop blowing.

    i'd go with let em smoke whenever and wherever they want well except in hospitals !!

    Here in Ohio, it's already banned in public buildings/businesses.

    I think it should be limited to your own home/property.

    I hate smelling/tasting smoke when I'm in public. We technically already have rules about how far you have to be from the entrance of a building, but no one enforces that.

    Because YOU are choosing to do something which actively interferes with those around you. YOU should move 10ft away. The day when I stand next to you and start singing Christian Rock you are well within your rights to ask me to move 10ft away. I wouldn't expect you to move from my sweet sweet muzak.

    shouldnt be allowed to smoke in public on the streets imo, should be up to businesses and what not if they want to allow smoking in their premises. but in the streets it should not be allowed.

    There is a huge difference between being offended and being affected.

    Yes, people shouldn't be able to smoke anywhere but at their homes.

    If you want to kill yourself, thats your business. Keep that shit away from me.

    this is why i hate it on the streets, waiting for a bus and some guy stands next to me with the wind blowing in my direction and starts smoking... why should i have to move because he wants to do something thats disgusting and harmful to everyones health around him.

    Arguably I'd say grocery stores and non-restaurants that sell food are the only establishments that shouldn't be allowed to allow smoking inside.

    Fair enough. I looked into it a bit more, and while the risk from second-hand smoke seems to be minuscule, it has been demonstrated to exist.

    when i was in school there was this wall i had to walk past and it always had about 6-7 people sat on the wall smoking, so everytime i turned up to school i smelled of smoke, the smell is really strong and clings very bad, you can try and cover it up with deodrant but it doesnt help all that much.
