outdoor smoking ban
I’m taking the extreme position that smoking should be illegal in all workplaces AND public outdoor spaces. I freaking HATE walking through the fumes that trail smokers on the sidewalk (even more than I hate seeing smokers litter). In Tokyo, the ultra-dense Chiyoda neighborhood banned public smoking completely a couple years ago. When I visited I delighted in seeing a Smokers’ Style cafe… a haze-filled, glassed-in gas chamber where the weak and addicted could poison themselves without fear of a fine. Perfect.
