No it shouldn't be completely banned, but it should be greatly controlled. There are many places that are posting signs throughout their facilities that say something to the effect of by order of the state, smoking is prohibited. Over the summer, I had a job at our local country club, working the locker room. I noticed one day that the ashtrays that had previously been anchored into the wall had been removed and the holes filled with putty. I was immediately surprised that smoking was not allowed, but was relieved when I didn't get that burning sensation inside of my nostrils from the various insundry types of tobacco smoke. SOme might say that I could've found another job if the smoke got to me enough, but what to say that the other job didn't allow smoking either? Don't get me wrong. I wouldn't mind smoking if it wasn't harmful. But the fact remains that it is harmful. Not only to the smoker, but also to those who don't smoke, and even more so to those of us who don't smoke. So smoking; yes it's a bad habit, but if someone wants to smoke, there's plenty of room outdoors. Also, there is always something better to spend the $4-5 on to help support the economy.
