States across the United States are beginning to ban smoking in public places to protect people from the hazards of second-hand smoke. This video segment from New York Voices looks at the battle over fresh air in bars and restaurants. Multiple perspectives are presented. Smokers debate it should be their choice to smoke or not smoke. Some resent being told they cannot smoke. On the other hand, nonsmokers are bothered by the smoke and risk the dangers of inhaling second-hand smoke.
