    Niall Boylan

In this episode, Niall explores the contentious issue of whether smoking should be banned to save lives. With smoking being a leading cause of preventable death worldwide, the debate over implementing a smoking ban has garnered significant attention.

Niall opens the lines to callers, inviting listeners to share their perspectives on the topic. Some callers advocate strongly for a smoking ban, citing the devastating health effects of tobacco use and the need to protect public health. They argue that banning smoking would not only save lives but also reduce healthcare costs and create a healthier environment for everyone.

Conversely, other callers express reservations about implementing a smoking ban, suggesting that prohibition may not be the most effective solution. They raise concerns about the potential for unintended consequences, such as the rise of black market activity, and emphasize the importance of respecting individual freedoms and personal responsibility.
