What do you think about the new bill proposed which will ban smoking while walking in New York. (you can still stand still on the street)


edit: seems kind of pointless as theres still wind which will carry your smoke pretty far...

Either way, I would support it. Smoking only has negative effects, both for your body, and that of everyone around you.

Yes, but the bill seems to be focused solely on short-term mechanics as opposed to long-term solutions.  I mean...if this bill is real, then it's not going to do much good.  Personally, I've found the best solutions to health-related problems seem to be the scare tactics.  What I mean by that is: Show someone what a heart attack looks like over a lifetime of eating fast-food and you may change some minds.  Beyond that, people will do what they do, and we've no right to stop them from engaging in relatively harmless acts of self-indulgence.

It will really take some time for this bill to be approved. It will be way better if they just create a designated post to smoke.
