This time, let's learn about the rights related to smoking.
The right to smoke refers to the individual’s right to smoke without any restrictions.
It is a right that has freedom of privacy atits core.
On the other hand, the non-smokers' right refers to "non-smokers' right to refuse to smell orinhale smoke in public places".
It is a right linked not only to individual freedom but also to the right to life
These two rights often come into conflict with each other, and in 2004, the Constitutional Court ruled that
"the right to smoke is a right to privacy, and the right to not smoke is a higher fundamental right
because it is linked to life".
To ensure that neitherright isviolated, Article 9, Paragraph 4 of the National Health Promotion Act designates
non-smoking areas, and a system is being built to prevent conflicts between the two rights.
Let's try to protect each other's rights with consideration for each other
