If the state wanted to reduce smoking, they'd rise the price. That's the way to do it for real, 9 pounds a pack give a cold shower. What they want, I recon, is to have a better leverage over the small businesses - cafes, restaurants, bars - almost the only surviving small business in the country. And defend the interests of big tobacco corps too.
As a non-smoker I prefer when nobody is doing it at my face of course. But the the PROPER thing to do in the cold country - would be to oblige cafes to have good _separated_ zones, real ones, ventilation that's actually working, and a heated terase outside where both sides could meet for a peaceful conversation. ‎- абсолют помидорного листа
