Sweden, such a lovely place. Home of the happiest people, free healthcare, free college, everyone is you, healthy and beautiful. Everything is bliss, everything is bliss.

Sweden, who now has decided to ban smoking outdoors, in fact, e-cigarettes and even herbal products, in fact, you can't even SELL tobacco now without a license, even if you were already selling it before! Gee, let's hope Big Brother is kind enough to give you one!

Gee, aren't you so happy now you put the government in charge of managing every detail of your life? Pretty soon they will be telling you what you can eat as well. Maybe they will even pick your life partner for you.

Sweden, that happy socialist utopia democrats dream of (brings a tear to my eye just thinking about it) where the government gets to run every aspect of your life, you know, because they know what's better for you than you do yourself (kinda like the evil Republicans telling a woman what she can do with her own body which for some reason democrats oppose).

Sweden, the perfect example of give an inch, take a mile. You're going to live healthier, damn it, whether you like it or not because after all, your smoking and possible ill side effects might cost the government more in healthcare they supply taking care of you!

It's a nasty habit. And rude to do around other people.

It was outlawed in several European countries when first introduced although in the American colonies it was more valuable than the currency.

Smoking a pipe is a nasty habit? Most people like the smell of pipe tobacco. I smoke a pipe and there is nothing nasty about it.
Abortion is a nasty habit. That's legal.
Over-eating is a nasty habit. That's legal.
Spitting is a nasty habit. That's legal.

Just one more step in the pussification of the European. It's OUTDOORS, man! I don't like cigarettes either but if I get a puff in the air I just deal with it or move elsewhere. Just one more step in socialists engineering the "masterpiece" society.

Since they are frozen over like 363 days a year, they should just ban all outdoor activity.

Swedish women are constantly frustrated by government dictates about what they eat, drink or smoke. They make up for that by going overboard with sex.

God Bless Sweden!

If they are happy with no smoking, then good for them.

Fine, but by then you will already have inhaled some carcenogenic particles from the smoke. If you are downwind from a smoker outside, in a pub garden, for example, it can be difficult, if not impossible to move to another table. Well done Sweden.

I generally share your sentiment, but the Swedish majority must apparently want this for their society. If not, they can vote for change.

The irony is that the Netherlands is one of the most traditional centuries old centers for fine pipe making! Here is one of my first, most valued and oldest pipes I bought made in Denmark. In fact, it is literally stamped on the underside 'Danish Hand Model.'

If banning smoking is what the people of Sweden want today, if they don't differentiate between fine pipes and cigars cherished by heads of state and the elite for generations vs. those ratty cancer stick nasty cigarettes made out of literal floor sweepings and chemicals, that is just one more victory for the pussification and dumbing down of Europe. It can take a lifetime to learn all there is to know about fine pipe making, care, the use and smoking of, and the very special tobaccos therein. They are throwing away centuries of knowledge, skill, craftsmanship and fine appreciation for the cultivation of an exquisite pleasure no different from fine food or wine making.

"The Talking Democrat" - That's nice. So, you found yourself a new click-bait peddler, dealing in the latest outrage of the day?

Reality:

As of July 1, Swedes were no longer able to light up in certain public spaces, such as playgrounds, train stations and even outside restaurants and bars. The ban has been extended to e-cigarettes.​
