    And less smelliness
    But will their lead be followed by others,
    Time will tell .

    I would have thought that 100% corruption free in government would have been a better start.

    That should turn Buenos Aires into a people-free zone.

    It would be great if anyone actually obeyed the law. Argentina's airports have been banning smoking for many years but you'll see people smoking right under the “no smoking” signs with impunity.

    I was surprised that the existing law on smoking in BA was mostly followed without a whimper. Also, the airport is under federal control and BA is under city control. This new law will not be concerned with the airpot.
