The best way to prevent people from smoking is keeping kids from starting. Why not just make the age to smoke 25? That way it would be illegal to smoke at least in public. Banning smoking indoors has really helped. I am so glad that if I go to a tavern for something to eat and drink that I don't have to endure smokers. That was one of the smartest things we've ever done. Now change the law and you won't have kids starting early. If you don't think it's necessary, just ride past Catonsville High at dismissal and see all the kids smoking when they leave the campus.
