If they want people to stop smoke, why not ban tobaco, would be much easier.

They tried that in the US with alcohol in the 20s it didn't work of course the mobs and corrupt law enforcement made plenty even a big political family

Making something illegal is irrelevant if it can't, or won't, be enforced.

Most farang smokers throw them into drains they are pigs

Thais just flick them anywhere

Last thing I want these fools doing is starting trash can fire's

Most people who start a sentence with the word 'most <insert group name here>' then resort to sweeping generalizations that make their sweeping generalization look even more ridiculous than their original post. Mostly.

How can some parents be smoking in the presence of their children? That is not good, a lots of children out there who started smoking leant it from their parents while some leant from their friends. Bad game, smoking can offer you nothing but one sickness or another.

I don't smoke and think it was a good idea when they banned it in places like restaurants. But this is yet another example of infringement of civil liberties and lack of human rights in what is turning into a police state.

Ha Ha Ha Ha. No ban in restaurants, hotels, private vehicles, offices, all places you find children. Also clubs. If you live alone then you are affecting no one. In law you cannot be prosecuted without a victim or injured party. What a load of 1984 nonsence and overreach by power hungry officials. I am a reformed smoker and suffer from emphaysema as a result. I would not presume however to tell people what they can and cannot do in their own homes provided it does not injur anyone. Anyway, if you smoke on the balcony or out the window, does it count? Is your garden part of uour home? If you live on a 7000 Rai plot do you have to climb a tree or leave the grounds. What stupidity. Why don't they get motorcyclists to wear helmets and go the correct way up a road first. Then teach drivers to drive in the driving lane unless they are overtaking!

Think I can disagree with almost everything here.

 

Are you sure it's not banned in such public places already?

If you live alone this law does not apply to you. It's about abuse of people not your property.

"I would not presume however to tell people what they can and cannot do in their own homes provided it does not injur anyone." Passive smoking doesn't just harm it can also kill people. Just because the harm is not instantly visible doesn't mean it is harmless.

If no-one is affected by your smoke you can smoke anywhere on your property.

Just because there are other dangerous things around doesn't mean you ignore the less important ones. Would you want to stop investigating rapes while there are murderers on the loose? I never understand this why bother with X when (totally unconnected) Y is still happening?  attitude. Why look for a cure for cancer when people are dying from drowning? - because it is also worth doing.

What's this really about then?  coz if it was about reducing smoking related deaths they wouldn't have a ban on vaping products

 

A good idea though coz I always felt nauseous when my father used to smoke in the drivers seat and it used to waft back on to me in the car giving me asthma

In many developed countries it's compulsory to have vehicles tested for pollution level,

what about in Thailand? 

Only if they're smoking in their own living room, left-hand drive, parked bonnet to window, and in neutral.
