New smoking at home law: "It's not a ban we are protecting the kids", top official

A leading Thai official has hit back at claims on social media that a new law is designed to stop people smoking in their own homes. 
 
There was a massive backlash from both smokers and non-smokers alike after the law was announced. 
 
Lertpanya Buranabanthit - the leader of the Department of Women's Affairs and Family Development - said the law does not seek to ban smoking at home. 
 
It has been brought in to protect children and other vulnerable people from the negative health effects of second hand smoke. 
 
The law is set to be enforced in Thailand from August 20th this year. 
 
Thaivisa notes that posters all over Thai and English language social media slammed the new law as an attack on civil liberties. Only a small proportion of people online recognized that its aim was to protect the vulnerable - especially children.

If you care about the children, stop the fires, from farm, forests and households.

If the photo is not bad enough imagine the poor kids living on the farm land where they do the burning, Like smoking Woodbines

And who is this putz? Nobody smokes inside their homes at all anymore.

And how about the air pollution for our kids? Who is going to protect them from that?

And how about the commanding of way too many hours of taking their time up at school subjecting them to idiotic activities and such that have zero basis on education?

And how about the kids gang violence? Who is going to protect them from that?

And who is going to protect our kids from the Junta? Either having to go to school and do the Ror Dor and forced to be in reserves until after 40 yrs old, or the conscripts who are subjected to officer slavery or worse group beatings of brutality?

 

These clowns have all their mental capacities stuck in their rear end. All they are trying to do is make a mark for themselves with total disregard for how moronic and off basis it may be..
