Indoor smoking: A partial or total ban?
Editor's note: After a ban on smoking in all indoor public places, Hangzhou, capital of East China's Zhejiang province, has reversed its position to allow designated smoking areas. The amendment has raised widespread outcry. Forum readers share their opinions.
Why should we make it convenient for smokers to smoke in public? Smoking must be banned completely in public, to protect nonsmokers from poisonous secondhand smoke! No ifs, ands or buts!
