It is a known fact that people who live and work around smokers are equally exposed to health risks and it has become a subject of intense debates all around the world lately. Smoking in public places is even more hazardous to health because, this way, smokers are not only bringing their own health to risk but also the health of others around them who do not smoke. California is the first state of the United States of America to impose a ban on smoking in public places. There has been a ban on smoking in restaurants, offices, manufacturing plants and other work places since 1995. Only bars and nightclubs were provided exclusion from these smoking bans only after the development of proper and appropriate ventilation systems in order to prevent health risks posed by the smoke emanating from cigarettes and cigars in these enclosed bars and clubs. Most of the doctors and the people associated with medicine support the smoking bans in public places. It clearly indicates that smoking has more risks attached to it than a few advantages as claimed by the smoking advocates. For instance, a professor of medicine at the University of California at San Francisco, Stanton A. Glantz, claims that the bar ban is one of the most momentous things happening in the history of the country. If the government manages to enforce them successfully in the country, these bans will spread across the country in no time given the fact that California is the biggest and the most diverse state of the United States of America. However, California State officials state that technology has not yet developed to the point where the non-smokers can be provided with the proper ventilation systems in the bars and nightclubs. Therefore, casinos, clubs and bars are forced to put a ban on smoking after midnight.

As far as the Californian doctors are concerned, they too support the expansion of already strict smoking laws. Most of the accomplished doctors of the state maintain that smoking should be prohibited in almost all the outdoor public places as well as the indoor places. For this purpose, The California Medical Association’s House of Delegates passed a resolution provoking the legislators of the state to put a ban on smoking in public areas like malls, bank lobbies, clubs, restaurants and bars. While describing the sheer need for these smoking bans, Dr. Howard Lang commented that tobacco is a killer and it is essential to do everything in our control to provide protection to non-smokers from secondhand smoke. The resolution itself and the constant stress of the doctors to enforce smoking bans in public areas of the fact are the testimony to the fact that smoking is indeed injurious to health and proper steps must be taken to limit its ever increasing detrimental effects. Moreover, the resolution written by the doctors from the Los Angeles County Medical Association was the result of approximately 400,000 almost every year due to the excessive use of tobacco. Its objective was to make the society smoke free until the year 2000. At first, the original resolution demanded the smoking ban in bars and restaurants only, however, later on; it was expanded to
