We asked some Queens locals what they thought about the mayor's proposed law banning the display of tobacco products in stores.

BY ADJANI SHAH

I think it’s bad and if they enforce the ban [people] can get it somehow, even if they buy it from someone on the street. I don’t think it will work out very well.
Alberto Melendez

I don’t smoke; I think that’s probably fine…I think it’s not good for kids to smoke. I’m for that.
Len Rubin

I don’t smoke. I think it’s a good plan, but at the same time it’s a privilege for people.
Ivan Valin

I’m not a cigarette smoker so I guess it’s good. I don’t agree with him trying to get rid of large sodas.
Lenny Patel

There’s no way of stopping any kind of smuggling…He wants more control of the health issues in the city. I’m against it because I’m a smoker.
Byron Deleon

I think he should stop meddling with people and their rights; some people can make their own decisions.
Fred Quinones

I think it’s a great idea. Cigarettes are a health hazard and people should be encouraged to smoke less.
Anthony Sierra

I think it’s good.
Andrew Goldstein
