Based on the success of smoking bans in other states, such as California and New York, where pollution is high, I fully support the smoking ban. Although many believe that it will force bars and restaurants in our area to close I disagree. I believe that it will promote the common good in our community. Not only does it promote health but, it may also help those who are trying to stop smoking, do it.
For those who are smokers, this may be a sacrifice. Although it is a sacrifice, it is one that must be made for the betterment of our community. Both smokers and non-smokers need to respect the rights of others and this ban is helping us in doing so.
