Stop smoking in public places

Although right now it seems like a losing battle, we must continue the campaign to stop smoking in public places and transportation.

The authorities have again raised the price of cigarettes to discourage consumption, but it didn't really yield any major improvement.

The law that bans smoking in public places must be enforced. The authorities should initiate a campaign to make smokers aware of the discomfort, inconvenience and harm that they cause to other people.
