I said no for the fact that noone has the right to shorten my life expectancy...second hand smoke is horrible for your lungs and i dont think public places should have even designated smokin areas

FFS people are shortening your life each day whether it be smokers, drivers or even factory workers.

Walk along a city footpath and you're inhaling ten times as many carciogenic fumes than you ever would in a bar

I don't smoke and I absolutely hate it, but if other people smoke, well, they smoke. That's their problem and who are we to tell them where they can and can't? It's common sense to not smoke in a hospital and such, but a bar? What's a cig going to do while most people are drunk off their asses anyway.

Which entirely justifies adding to the toxins? Please find me the science to back up your claims.

I'm not really bothered.
In restaurants (well in England) there are seperate parts for smokers and non smokers. If you smoke, you smoke. If you don't, they're not forcing you to.
And anyways, in most public places where the smoking actually effects you would be places like Pubs or where bands play, which you'd expect it to be like that anyways.

Seriously? In New Zealand? I thought you guys had sheep and hills? I probably don't even know where the hell you are on a map then, brb...

Ok no, I was right, but seriously, im suprised you have cars there, do you import alot of food or can you grow it there in the middle of nowhere.

meh! i don't smoke anymore and i hate it. but in a bar well it just doesn't feel like a bar with out clouds of smoke going by your face on the dance floor. but where we don't get a choice i think there should be areas. i don't agree with smokers having to go outside to smoke. its unfair, just make a areas in the bars, and food areas for smokes. and everything could be fine.. i hate going into Micky D's now that theres not clouds of smoke meeting me to say hello..

I said yes because I would bet that more than 50% of people that go to the bar to enjoy a drink also smoke. I dont see a use for a public bar, but Iam sure that if the people in the bar had a quick vote inside a bar, the people who want to smoke and drink would overcome the people who didnt want to smoke inside. Iam not pro-smoking, but I think if the people who go to bars could choose the rules in there own bars they would ok it.

And to the people who are citing the governments role in this: The sole reason that any law is passed at all is because there is a proven negative side affect to free born cigarette smoke. It damages the lungs of everyone in the area. As a non-smoker and a runner, I don't want to breathe in smoke, whether it be from marijuana, cigarettes, cigars, etc. If I am in a public area, then I have that right. Smokers are welcome to smoke at home. Or with other smokers or where people who don't care are present.

i just think if there going to banned smoking every where which seems like there going to do. why don't they just stop selling smokes...make it simple.. you can't smoke them anywhere if theres nothing to smoke.. but then i guess it would be more like weed.. there would be cig dealors everywhere.. but my point being is that banning it all together in bars in stupid, i can understand family areas, but bars.. really.
