Second hand spittle

I mentioned back in August that I was against the smoking ban. I'm no more in favor of it now that it has come to pass than I was then.

However, other than hearing that the ban had come into effect, I hadn't paid too much attention to the details of the law. According to Kieron Wood, the following are also banned (indoors, in a public space):
  1. having an unlit cigarette in your mouth
  2. sniffing a cigar
  3. chewing or sucking on any tobacco product
I guess the Minister was protecting workers from that second hand sniff or spittle, huh?
