It has been recently revealed in a report that Boulder’s leaders are considering the ban that has been placed on the outdoor smoking in Colorado.
They are of the view that they might soon put across this ban in their own city as well. The Boulder Mayor Matt Appelbaum is of the view that this is definitely a positive step and the leaders shall consider towards making this possible for their own town. This is because it has definitely helped people a lot and might help their city as well.
“It’s clearly been a trend that has benefited people. They weren’t allowed to smoke in certain buildings, then public places and every step of the way our health has gotten better”, said non-smoking Boulder resident, Brian Vancil.
There are however mixed reactions from different residents of the city. Some are of the view that it would be able to help the people, while others are of the view that it might be very restricting and would be harmful for the people of the city.
There is need for the authorities to debate the matter further and reach common grounds for the same. The ban would be beneficial in helping people smoke less. It would also mean the others won’t have to suffer for the bad habits of smokers.
There are people dying due to lung cancer all over the world. This makes it very important for people to understand how important it is to give up smoking. This can be done with the help of placing such mandatory bans, which shall automatically restrict people from smoking somewhere.
It remains to be seen whether the city gets this ban put up or not.
