Sales ban may be only option


Tracy Lam wrote in her letter “people uncomfortable about inhaling second-hand smoke can avoid designated smoking areas” (“Enough controls”, July 19). This is ridiculous. Are our streets designated smoking zones?

She claimed to be a non-smoker and then implied she is comfortable being a passive smoker.

If tighter controls over smoking are not possible, then the government should impose a total ban on tobacco sales for the sake of our health, not set out smoking areas.
