Hangzhou, capital of East China's Zhejiang province, has given a green light to setting up indoor smoking areas in public places in a draft of its newly revised smoking control regulation. The amendment has raised widespread outcry because only four months ago Hangzhou reiterated its ongoing efforts to implement a smoking ban in all indoor public places.

Critics say that if the revised smoking control regulation is adopted, it will be a step backward. But the fact is many cities have followed Hangzhou's example in carrying out a total ban on public smoking, but the zero tolerance has existed in name only. Because of the lack of enforcement, smoking in public has not been curbed and the total smoking ban has become a laughingstock. What do you think about Hangzhou's proposed adjustment of its regulation?

So glad you got my message!  Why should we make it convenient for smokers to smoke in public?  In fact I have mentioned Hangzhou's half hearted smoking ban in my previous thread.  Smoking MUST be banned completely in public, to protect non smokers from poisonous secondhand smoke!  No IFs and Buts!!

" Public smoking: To ban or not?"

How dumb to ask that question!  Is there a better alternative to banning?  Why is China still dragging its feet on tobacco control, decades after it signed up to the Convention on Tabacco Control?  It must have a national ban on smoking in public, strictly enforced without exception!  It can't leave it to individual cities to come up with their own watered down version of tobacco control!  Hangzhou's smoking ban is a big joke!  And there re still many cities that do not ban smoking in public!  Latest count is, 20 cities have the ban, while the rest have none!  When are the rest doing something to protect non smokers?
