I would like to do my research paper about “Smoking in public places” because I experience this almost every day. Me as a non-smoker, I really dislike the fact that when I am in public and people are allowed to smoke around me. This is not only dangerous for my health but also the health of the younger generations. Children breathe the smoke which damages their lunges and can cause very serious problems later on in life. Some questions I will answer in my paper are; Should they ban smoking in public and why? What should they do to not offend smokers? Is it correct to have special designated smoking areas all around the city? Should there be a citation for people who smoke around people under the age of 21 (this is the age to legally purchase tobacco related products)?
Attached is the research summaries you did!
HERE ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE FIRST DRAFT:

Your assignment is due on May 20, but I advise you to contact me during office hours or via email to discuss your progress and ask questions over the next few weeks. If you spend 30 minutes on this draft every day, it will actually be an assignment you will enjoy, as opposed to doing it all at the last minute.
Your final draft will be due June 6.
