The 'ban' in Scotland isn't proposed to come in until March 2006.... I'm looking forward to seeing Glasgow when it comes in Great! ban it in it's entirety, make it illegal, stop the hypocrisy of taxing it. Alchohol and the effects of alchohol cost a great deal too.... Last year £200 million was put into the Scottish health service and £1.2 billion was received from smoking related taxes in Scotland. It would be great if people got this hyped up about the amazing amount of pollution we breath every day from factories, cars, trucks etc. The effect on us is only just coming out, the effect on the planet is well known and being successfully ignored by those who have the most to lose.
