Personally I have never been a smoker, don't like the smell, and can (sort of) see why they want to discourage it. However, this does seem a bit too much like nanny state and government nosiness/bossiness for me to be comfortable with it.
- Schools searching all lunch boxes and confiscating the contents if the breadroll fillings aren't on the government approved fillings list, calories are excessive, or they don't like the flavour of the drink that has been included?
- While they are at it, they can also confiscate the book the kid has because it's too "adult" or not on the government-approved approved reading list?
- And maybe parents could be sent to compulsory education classes about the "harm" they are causing and/or have their "privilege" to own a TV revoked if they let a child stay up late and watch "inappropriate" TV programmes?
They should stick to presenting sound scientific information about risks and options to parents, and rein in some of these petty bossy interfering bureaucrats.
