I am a Turkish student studying English at Kaplan Santa Barbara. Ever since my arrival here two weeks ago, I’ve been surprised by Santa Barbara’s no-smoking in public law.
Cigarettes are smoked everywhere in Turkey, whether it’s open in public or places like restaurants or cafes — and it’s not a beautiful sight.
Smoke is everywhere and cigarettes litter the ground. Santa Barbara’s exemplary behavior should spread not only to Turkey but everywhere.
I love Santa Barbara’s no-smoking law. I have never been to a place where smoking wasn’t all around me. I hope non-smoking laws spread everywhere.
Smoking has so many health hazards for smokers and non-smokers. Thank you, Santa Barbara.
