In Brazil, we also have a law that has banned smoking in all indoor common spaces, public or private, such as restaurants, clubs, residential building halls and clubs. I agree with this law, although the smokers, 15% of the population, claim that they have the right to smoke, the law protects the no smokers not only against the unpleasant smoke and smell of cigarettes, and also take care of the public health. Certainly smoking causes illness, and people who do not have the addiction of smoking are also victims of such diseases when involuntarily inhale the cigarette smoke.
Smoking is an activity in the society that has become a serious topic as it causes health problems to both smokers and passive smokers due to the inhalation of tobacco. Consequently, the most visible alternative for the legislators and other institutions in various countries is the banning of smoking in public.
