My stand on smoking bans
As cities across New Zealand debate smoking bans in public places, we want to hear your opinion on smoke-free policies.
Almost all public spaces in Auckland will become no-go zones for smokers after the Auckland Council signed off a policy to get the city smoke-free by 2025. Wellington city has a ban on smoking in parks, while Palmerston North this year introduced 'clean-air' zones.
Do you support proposals to ban smoking in public places or do you think they're a bit too nanny state?
Are our smoke-free plans for NZ on the right track or are we focusing on the wrong things?
