I don't think this is a bad idea at all. Public housing is owned by the govt, and as such, they can regulate what can/cannot happen in those
As a smoker, I don't smoke in my own house, nor do I expect to smoke in anyone elses. Cigarette smoke makes the air stale, stains the walls and
leaves a fine layer of ash over everything, even when ashing into an ash tray.
It's much nicer to smoke outside, especially on cold clear nights. There's no harm in stepping outside for the 4 minutes it takes to finish a
cigarette, so why not do it.
This would be a different story if the smoking ban was applied to housing that was not owned by the govt, but in this case, there's nothing wrong
with the ban.
