Even teens who smoke support tough smoking bans according to this Health Day News report. " North Carolina, a tobacco-growing state, does a lot to protect smoking: Its cigarette taxes are nearly the lowest in the country, and it only banned smoking in most restaurants, bars and hotels in 2010. But a newly reported survey suggests that its teenagers aren't fans of tobacco.

More than 80 percent of 3,805 middle-school students surveyed said smoking shouldn't be allowed at home, indoors at work or in cars. Slightly fewer (78 percent) of 3,301 high-school students were onboard with these restrictions, but most still liked not allowing smoking in homes and a few other places." MORE
