I have a friend who used to smoke, quit after a health scare, and as well finding out he his a father, a teen one at that, good thing he changed for the better.
While I do agree that the air will just carry it away, but someone standing in the way of the wind, and gets smacked with a cloud of smoke, is not good, esp if that person has asthma.
Also, making smoking areas a few feet away from non-smokers is best as well. I'm gonna bring up Disneyland and say that they do have smoking areas, good news is that it is away from children and a few feet away where tons of people are at.
Of course, I am not safe from my home tho. Father smokes, so whenever I'm out and he's away smoking somewhere else, my lungs have a chance to breathe and I don't have to worry about my chronic asthma.
