Unit 2 health concern
(There are various health concerns which have often affected the nation until legislations have been passed to address the concern. In this case, the health concern under consideration is that one of smoking in public places. Most of the states prohibit smoking in public places. On 8TH November 2005, a law which prohibits smoking in all bars and restaurants was passed in Washington. It happened after the 1985 clean indoor Air Act was amended. The definition of a public place included restaurants, bars, skating rinks, bowling centers and non-tribal casinos. It also included the private residences which are used to provide foster care, childcare, adult care or similar social services. Nearly three-quarter of sleeping quarters within a hostel is also considered as public places. The law on smoking in public places also prohibits smoking twenty-five feet of exits, open windows, entrances and ventilation intakes which serve enclosed areas in which smoking is also prohibited (Registry., 2016). )
