New York City Bans Smoking in Public Places
Nine years after the city banned smoking in bars and restaurants -- on Wednesday, the New York City Council approved a ban that extends to parks, beaches and even Time Square.
Class discussion: What's wrong with this quote from the video:
"I believe in free rights for everybody and the people should be able to do as they please, regardless of whether it's hurting other people or not."
Should smoking in parks be banned in your community? Where would you stop? Banning smoking on the street? Banning smoking in your car? Banning smoking entirely?
