There is very likely a growing number of folk who have never smoked. Add to that a lot who have given up (and ex-smokers can be really anti as I found with my own parents who had really bad lungs and breathing problems in later life).
As someone in that group I can honestly say that it is unpleasant enough that I (probably without even thinking) stand upwind of a smoker. The vape things are really offensive as they billow way more whatever-it-is than should be acceptable.
I don't know who proposed the motion but I am in favour of a ban. It is an addiction and should be discouraged.
Also I find that by removing my hat/cap that my bald spot is really quite good at detecting wind flow/direction. Should we enforce the wearing of hats hahaha.
